Small Craft Warning is a New York City-based "Dead-style" jam band, but we are not a cover band. We have developed an original repertoire of jam tunes which draw their inspiration from the Grateful Dead - mixed with a dash of our own unique medicine, of course.
The fact is that there are precious few original jam bands. There are many Dead cover bands, and a whole generation of "groove/electronica" bands. BUT, there are few bands that have really pursued the Grateful Dead's twin aims of crafting thoughtful, timeless songs while simultaneously creating in-the-moment, mind-bending improvisational music. Small Craft Warning is the needle in the haystack!
Our site contains a few of our tunes, chords and lyrics for our original tunes, set lists, photos, and links to a few other treats and surprises to boot. If you dig it, let us know. If not, well .... you can't please everybody, and we don't aim to try!
By the way, the tune you are hearing now is The More It Turns. To hear a complete version of this song, as well as some of our other original tunes and some videos, check out our page at Reverbnation. Or, you can stream or download entire live shows at Live Music Archive.
