Bill Kreutzmann Trio featuring Scott Murawski and Oteil Burbridge

What a trio!! Allman Brothers bassist Oteil Burbridge, Max Creek vocalist and guitarist Scott Murawksi, and none other then the Grateful Dead's Bill Kreutzmann have formed a power trio and will be touring this summer. The three are said to also be working on a late fall release. Not sure what the actual name they are playing under is but I have seen KBM and the Bill Kreutzmann Trio on different sites and according to David Gans over on Cloud Surfing it might just be THREE.

Tour dates confirmed thus far:
Wed, May 28-Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel- Providence, RI

Thurs, May 29-State Theater- Falls Church, VA

Fri, May 30-New Alhembra Arena- Philadelphia, PA

Sat, May 31-Recher Theater- Towson, MD

Sun, June 1-Rocks Off Concert Cruise- New York, NY

Tues, June 3-Tupelo Music Hall- Londonderry, NH

Thurs, June 5- The Roxy Nightclub- Boston, MA

Fri, June 6-Toad’s Place- New Haven, CT

Sat, June 7-Higher Ground Ballroom- S. Burlington, VT

Sat, Aug 2-Gathering Of The Vibes Fest- Bridgeport, CT

Sat, Oct 25-Magnolia Fest- Live Oak, FL
I'm a little disappointed that the NYC cruise date conflicts with Mountain Jam IV and our good Dr Pauly will be on assignment in Las Vegas during that time. It's great to see Bill back out there playing music again. Bill has a pretty cool website showcasing his artwork and music and a link to his myspace page. Take a look at Ocean Spirit.net and click on the faces of his drums.

You can also hear a sneak peak of them over on Scott's website Scott Murawski.com by clicking on listen to 3 @ Pearl Street. There is a ripping, smoking Eyes of the World with Scott on guitar and vocals and an incredible bass line by Burbridge. Alas, I was unable to find the show on archive.org just yet.

I saw the Recher show and it blew my mind. I'd suggest anyone doing all they can to see these guys.

Also, if anyone can help to get a set list of the recher show, I'd really appreciate that.

These guys put it out there big time.

The Ft. Lauderdale show smoked. Was fortunate enough to meet Oteil and Scott before the show - great guys.
