These local Create A Vibe favorites will be hitting the road fresh from the recording studio, so keep an eye out for them, and show them some love when they come to your town.

Robert Randolph - The music of Robert Randolph is more than just one man playing a pedal steel guitar. It is more than just a band, a family, on stage engulfing its audience with intense jams. It is a unique style and a new genre of music altogether. Hearing it for the first time, you get the feeling of meeting someone for the first time and knowing instantly you've met a lifelong friend.

Melvin Sparks - His career began in backing Sam Cooke, Little Richard, Jackie Wilson, Wilson Pickett, Marvin Gaye, Solomon Burke, The Supremes, little Stevie Wonder & others. Melvin's work is featured on over 100 jazz albums with artists such as Grover Washington, Jr., Lou Donaldson, Hank Crawford, Jimmy McGriff Jack McDuff and dozens more. Recently toured with Karl Denson Tiny Universe and Robert Walters 20th Congress.

The Zen Tricksters - Formed 23 years ago, the Zen Tricksters' mission is to blend jamming  originals with tasty Dead nuggets to create sets you only dreamed about  hearing. Phil Lesh was so impressed with the band's ability to jam in the  studio that he tapped two members to be part of his Phil & Friends  collective. In an interview with Kenny T of radio station KGLT in 2000, Phil said, "The Tricksters are more than just a cover band. They have their own stuff and they are brilliant, their stuff is brilliant. They are great players!" The Zen Tricksters are the quintessential jamband. Based in New York, they play nearly 200 dates a year while touring throughout the United States and Canada.

The Code Talkers - Featuring Col. Bruce Hampton. Few are those whose music will tickle your fancy and kick your ass, fewer still the practitioners who choose to do both in ways that lovingly leave you in a better place for having had such an out of mind experience. Poet, philosopher, parlor psychic and vocal expressionist Bruce Hampton (AKA The Colonel) has been at it on the outside looking out, making music for better than 30 years now, long enough to make it a pleasure, sir, and also a custom. 

Scarecrow Collection - A great up and coming band from the Garden State. These guys play some good time, foot taping music, that always bring a smile to the those getting down on the dance floor. There eclectic sound has something for everyone.
