The Schwag: The Schwag is a band dedicated to carrying on the music and the vibe of the legendary Grateful Dead. Founded in 1991 as a local St. Louis-based Dead tribute, the group began touring after the 1995 death of Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, and has played more than 2,000 shows in 18 states, with an average of 150 shows a year, and a working repertoire of 200 songs. Several Schwag members have extensive jazz training, and the band's live performances emphasize improvisation and spontaneity. Like the Grateful Dead, The Schwag operates without set lists. Its only rules are to avoid repeating songs from recent shows and to give high-energy performances that encourage dancing and good vibes. The Schwag is an established group that has attracted some prominent members of the jam-band community to sit in on their sets, including Merl Saunders, the late Johnny Johnson, Butch Trucks of the Allman Brothers, Mike Gordon of Phish, Fred Tackett of Little Feat, Vince Herman and Drew Emmit of Leftover Salmon; Bill Nershi, Michael Kang, Michael Travis, and Jason Hann of String Cheese Incident; Melvin Seals of JGB, Scott Law, Pete Sears, Chuck Berry, the late Vince Welnick, and many other great players.

Aaron Kamm & The One Drops: Formed in Edwardsville, IL, in late 2007 as a Reggae-Blues band, Aaron Kamm and The One Drops' popularity grew quickly in the St. Louis music scene. Jamming on the back of the rock-reggae revival engraved by The Police and Sublime, Aaron Kamm and The One Drops mixes up their positive reggae grooves and heart felt lyrics with foot stomping blues influences. The band released their first album "Gnu-Gnu" in September of 2008. The trio is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Aaron Kamm, bassist Andy Dorris, and drummer Sean Raila -- played their first gig in November of 2007 at a small St. Louis club. The group began aggressively touring around the area with an increasingly substantial following. They continue to play full time in the St. Louis area. Plans of national tour are in the close future.
