    RGB has certainly been blessed in 2020, playing just about every weekend. This could not have happened if it wasn’t for these great venues we play that provided a safe environment while social distancing, as well as everyone of the many that continued to come to our shows. Thank you all!

  • 2. STEAL YOUR FUNK (Percussions/Vocals)

  • Jen Durkin’s Steal Your Funk, one of CT’s most entertaining Funk and Groove JamBands. Cofounders JEN DURKIN (Deep Banana Blackout/The Business), JORDAN GIANGRECO (The Breakfast,Legion of Jerry), and percussionist ROB GLASSMAN, formed this fun band in 2015, and over the past 6 yrs, has performed with a collective of amazing New England musicians, that are often found onstage playing everything from The Grateful Dead, to anything funky and groovin. Since the formation of SYF, the following music legends have joined the band for an evening, or more, including Doug Wimbish(Living Colour), Leo Nocentelli(The Meters), Sam Kininger(formerly of Lettuce), and the late Dr. Charles Neville(The Neville Brothers).
    Jen “Pipes” Durkin is well-known for her band Deep Banana Blackout, that formed almost 30 years ago, becoming hugely popular, and still performing a few shows a year. However, she is also known, and well-respected, for the musical legends she has worked and performed with. This high energy Funk rock band hit it off with the emerging jam band scene of the 90’s and toured Nationally opening for Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, P-Funk, Gov’t Mule, John Scofield and James Brown. They co wrote and produced 2 CDs before she left in 2000 to join Bernie Worrell and the Woo Warriors.
    It was during this time that writing partnership with Ian Mc Hugh and the Bomb Squad became a creative outlet for Jen. During the next 5 years they co wrote and produced 2 CDs winning the American Music Award for best unsigned band and played before Metallica on the show.
    She went on to tour nationally with legendary Parliament Funkadelic founder, and keyboardist, Bernie Worrell, and her band “The Bomb Squad” performed at the 2003 American Music Awards after winning the Nationwide Best Unsigned Band competition, beating out 1200 bands from all over the USA
    Durkin become more well-known, all over the country, when she was invited to join Grateful Dead drummers, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, in their band “The Rhythm Devils.”
    The band also featured Mike Gordon (Phish) and Steve Kimock, on an amazing 30 day “Super Group” tour, debuting new songs written by Robert Hunter.
    In the Summer of 2008, “Pipes” kept on touring in the Mickey Hart Band, with master of funk George Porter, Jr, Walfredo Reyes Jr, and Kyle Hollingsworth.

    Jen Durkin’s Steal Your Funk always brings a night of high energy, interactive vibes, transitioning and immersing a classic mix of funk, R & B, dance, and motown, with good ole Grateful Dead.
    SYF advocates a good time with positive vibes, and every show leaves people wanting more.

  • 3. Music Never Stopped (Guitar/vocals)

  • Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia Tribute Band
    started by Scott Guberman (Terrapin Crossroads, Phil Lesh and Friends), Johnny Chang, and Myself. Currently the core of this project is with young phenom, lead guitarist John Spignesi, and Myself.



  • Growing up I loved R & B and Motown, and a whole lot more, including classic rock and even disco. Watching music shows like American Bandstand, Soul Train, and MTV also had a big influence on me.
    Then in high school I went to my first Grateful Dead concert, and was hooked! I began seeing shows, touring, collecting tapes, and all that came along, which including learning about not only about music, but also about other bands that encompassed The Grateful Dead. Especially the Woodstock bands, and at same time diving into Bob Dylan, The Radiators, The Neville Brothers, The Meters, Phish, and Widespread Panic. When Branford Marsalis performed with the GD, my ears began to find the love for jazz, and the legends, like the late Stanley Turrentine, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, David Sanborn, Ornette Coleman, and many more.
    After seeing the Grateful Dead, especially watching their two drummers, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzman, I became interested in taking on percussions, however more of a fun thing to do than anything else. I soon started to play a wooden tone box back in the late 80’s, and then began to sit in with a few bands. After returning from living on the island of Maui in 1991, I purchased a pair of Green CPs by LP, followed by a pair of mini LPs, as well as a pair of Matador Bongos. All of which I still own and play today. I also added blocks, bells, symbols, and scaled-down rack, and began to play out with various blues bands around New Haven during the 90s. In the late 90’s I decided to take playing guitar a little more seriously, and began teaching myself, of course with a little help from some close friends. Soon I formed a band, began writing music, and playing out more often.

    My hobby still continues, and love sharing it with all of you..

    So much fun!

    I thank all those who come see us and support the music and positive vibes!
