Predicting the Weather on CD

Tickets went on sale at 10 am. At 5 am, Tom Brown was first in line. Soon after, Todd arrived and was second in line. The line was fore the Jerry Garcia Band, Halloween 1994. The two started chatting about past shows, the state of the Dead scene, and the possibility of the two guitar players getting together to have fun and jam. Thus was borne a series of friendships culminating into Midnight Rain. Tom (lead and rhythm guitar, vocals) and Todd (lead and rhythm guitar, vocals) started getting together on a regular basis. Soon thereafter the two were temporarily joined by several local area veteran musicians and soon began hitting the northern Jersey club scene playing the music of the Grateful Dead and other San Francisco acts. Original tunes were often slipped into the extended set lists. In the winter of '95 Karen Lauber joined up, adding rich melodies and sweet harmonies to tunes such as "And it Stoned Me" and "Sugaree". Karen also took the lead vocal spot on many other songs. Midnight Rain quickly gained popularity by playing the north Jersey club scene; such places include Images in Pearl River, NY and Hobson's Choice in Hoboken, NJ. Some gigs included opening for RCA recording artists From Good Homes, Rob Wasserman, Steve Perkins (Janes Addiction) as well as Vince Welnick of the Grateful Dead and Tubes fame, and making new friend Buddy Cage [of The New Riders of the Purple Sage] who would sit in on pedal steel guitar . Midnight Rain went on to play for the cable television program "Tom Sullivan Show", and received front page coverage from the Dateline News Journal. They also played for many of the REX Foundation, the NJ Veterans Society and the Earth Day/Organic Farming benefits. Midnight Rain took a short break and now have added original members, Matt Michura on drums, and Kelly Smith on keyboards, as well as Joe McKenna on bass. In addition, Jen Lepre has re-joined the band in place of karen on vocals. Jen\'s strong and flexible voice ass a new dimension to the music. They are recording a new album due out in early 2009. About \'Predicting the Weather\': \'True country hippie jam pop with a touch of hillbilly and rock thrown in, Midnight Rain\'s debut outing, Predicting the Weather, is sure to bring a smile to your face. It's Grateful Dead-like lyrics, harmonic vocals, and exquisite musicianship make this a beatific listen. Joyous songwriting and labyrinthian guitar interplay between poly-rhythmic guitarist Brown, Garcia-like lead guitarist Dickman, dexterous bassist Norgren, and the Grammy award winning stellar talent of Buddy Cage (of The New Riders of the Purple Sage and Dylan\'s \'Blood on the Tracks\' stardom) make this a must-have CD for any aspiring stringed instrument player. Get this band\'s debut album while there material is still affordable!!!!\' - Amazon.com Band line-up for \'Predicting the Weather\' Buddy Cage - Pedal Steel Guitar Tom Brown - Guitar and Vocals Ben Norgren - Bass, Guitar, and Vocals Barat Dickman - Guitar and Vocals Karen Lauber - Keyboards and Vocals Scott Edelman - Drums and Percussion *Special guest - Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth Reviews: \'How a band like Phish can become known as a Dead disciple when a REAL band like Midnight Rain exists is beyond me. The song writing is exquisite, the finger work is intricate, the moods are intimate. If you like intelligent but unpretentious music, try this disk.\' \'This band ROCKS! I was a Deadhead until Jerry\'s untimely demise. I was crushed and thought I would never be able to jam to that type of music again. No one could ever sound that great. Boy, was I ever wrong! These guys know how to play. I have even used \'Roam\' as the theme music for my answering machine at home. I will be a loyal follower forever! Thank you, Midnight Rain, for giving us that great \'Jerry feeling\' again. I am looking foward to seeing this band live (again). THEY RULE!\' \'This blissful set of songs remind me of hanging out with some good friends on a summer evening. Some of the tunes touched me immediately, while others took some time. But once I discovered the layout of the songs, I began to appreciate their texture, their personality. More specifically, \'Roam\' and \'Predicting the Weather\' happen to be some of my favorites. I could swear that Jerry speaks thru this band, and Dickman\'s fingerwork. Kudos to MR: May they carry on the music and spirit of their predecessors!\' \'This is an amazing disk. I actually heard these guys in a little bar in NJ a while ago and their catchy tunes lodge in your head instantly. The title song, Predicting the weather will probably hit the charts as soon as the word\'s out on these guys. Good luck, Midnight Rain!\'
