  • Funk and Groove JamBand that began in Jan 2015 at New Haven’s Pacific Standard Tavern with JEN DURKIN (Deep Banana Blackout/The Business), JORDAN GIANGRECO (Viral Sound,The Breakfast,Legion of Jerry), and MYSELF, as well as a collective of amazing New England musicians that are often found onstage playing everything from The Grateful Dead, to anything funky and groovin’, as well as classic motown stuff.

    Jen Durkin is also well-known for not only fronting Deep Banana Blackout, but for also joining Grateful Dead drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann , with Mike Gordon (Phish) and Steve Kimock , on an amazing 30 day tour debuting new songs written by Robert Hunter. Jen “Pipes” kept on touring in the Mickey Hart Band with master of funk George Porter, Jr, Walfredo Reyes, Jr. and Kyle Hollingsworth, through the summer of 2008.






  • Growing up I loved R & B and Motown, and a whole lot more, including classic rock and even disco for a time. 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, including learning about bands such as every one of the bands that played Woodstock, and this led to others like Bob Dylan, The Radiators, The Neville Brothers, The Meters, Phish, Widespread Panic, and Branford Marsalis, which opened my ears and love for jazz 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.
