Hey now...

Beggars Tomb's lead guitarist has announced he will be retiring and moving within the next year or so (April 2017 at the absolute latest). We are very sorry to lose him but also happy for him to be able to move on to the next stage of his life on his own terms - we should all be so lucky!

With that said, this does give us a bit of time to prepare and try to find the best fit, so we are putting out feelers to see who in our area might be qualified, available and interested in auditioning for his spot. While nothing is yet written in stone we are anticipating trying to start at least some sort of informal audition and practice regime sometime this summer in anticipation that he might have to stop sooner than later (he does have some health issues)

Basically, we are looking for strong Jerry Garcia guy, with vocals being equally as important as guitar playing. We would prefer someone in the DC/MD/NoVA region so we can practice on at least a semi-regular basis.

Please feel free to contact me directly with any inquiries or references - thanks!!!
