Uncle Bud's Band was formed in 1995. The members had all been the original players in
another psychedelic Grateful Dead cover band known as
Other People. That band began in 1987
and over time the original members filtered out to other projects. They have come full circle
with Uncle Bud's Band-now a little older and wiser. Besides Tom Constanten, they have jammed
with Dave Grisman & his band, local favorite Doc Watson, Merl Saunders, the Radiators, Bob Weir, Max Creek, and more they can not remember today!
