We would love to see you and Greg. Also, the line-up changed a little since that post. We fired Terry and now have Peter Hosapple (The DB's, The Continental Drifters, as well as a touring sideman for R.E.M., Hootie and the Blowfish among others) on Bass. Oh, and no horns at this show.
This band is a very casual affair. The recording (link in Meredith's 1st post of this thread) is just something we had lying around and I just slapped a second drum kit on it a couple of days ago (since we are a two drum set band). We just needed some kind of example of how we sound. That song is called Alpha Ray and is one of around 20 of Joe's songs we have arranged for two drummers.
JAKELEG: Mark Efland - Drums, congas Me - Drums (surprise!) Joe Tullos - Vocals, Guitar Greg Bell - Piano, Organ, Accordion, Vocals,etc.. (Greg was in Chapel Hill's infamous Chicken Wire Gang) Peter Holsapple - Bass, Vocals (He was in the DB's, The Continental Drifters, and has toured as a guitarist with everyone from R.E.M. to Hootie and the Blowfish)
We do not have a website, a Myspace page, a blog, a band photo or a CD (some of this will change in the coming months) and we are not the Jakeleg from Ohio- very casual. I wanted to let the hardest of the super hard-core Melonheads know about the show just in case they wanted to do something crazy like drive to Hillsborough, NC to check us out.
November 21st at the Blue Bayou (they are a little slow getting their calendar updated, but we should appear on it soon)
News Flash! - Blind Melon has not broken up - and we are still looking for a singer (Help!)

patzeller: ive seen the band in MN in 2015, Denver (home) in 2016 and last night in Chicago. Despite Brad missing, the bands chemisty was the best I’ve ever seen. Awesome awesome show. Guess I’ll be heading to Edmonton in June!

jaakko: Hi there! I´m new here! Straight to the question... Is there any possibilities that Blin Melon would tour somewhere in europe someday? I need to see and hear my all time favourite band live before I die. Do I need to fly to U.S.A?

crobar: Anyone know who played the harmonica lead in the song "change" at woodstock '94?

crobar: If you watch the video on youtube for "Change" at woodstock '94, a dude is welcomed out on stage to play the lead harp. Shannon thanks him but you can't hear the name. The guy killed it and I'd like to know who he is/was. Any help is appreciated.

lisa: Blind melon take me back to a really happy time of leaving school and having the world at my feet. I am about to watch the doc. I am looking forward to seeing what the band thought of history being made and the creation of timeless music. RIP Shannon

blindmango: Hi, I'm looking for anyone with info on the promotional Soup Can from 1995. How rare are they? How much do they go for? What was in side? I cant find anything that confirms the contents or special and surprising promotional ingredients. Thanks
