Once in a while a group of musicians gets together to

play music, and something special happens.

Zydeco Jed is one of those situations where

rock and roll meets jazz, cajun, zydeco, country and

some good old fashioned Grateful Dead.


The band loves all kinds of music, and most of the members

have played with a Grateful Dead tribute band...

in fact, many of the band mates played together

in local bands such as the Next Step and On the Bus,

the top Grateful Dead tribute bands

in the region going back 20 years.


Everyone in Zydeco Jed traces their

early musical experiences to roots rock and roll,

and each has a connection

with much of the same music that inspired Jerry Garcia,

Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and the family of the Grateful Dead.

But over the years, each was exposed to jazz, cajun,

country, and other styles that influences their playing.


It's this current blend of musical influences that is inspiring

the band to write original material

and pay tribute to so many styles of music,

with a decided nod to the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan,

the Meters, Elvis Presley, and so many other great musicians.


Zydeco Jed... Tom Ericsson,

Mike Lessin, Chris Marsh.  Nick Newlin and Tom Bollinger...

we wish you good health and happiness.
