Band Biography

"Jerry Garcia wrote great songs and had a great ear for other people's songs. Hooteroll? follows that wide, deep path through a wonderland of musical styles with a style and grace of their own." - David Gans, author, musician, and host of The Grateful Dead Hour and Tales from the Golden Road

Hooteroll? is the Nashville, TN tribute to the music of Merl Saunders, Jerry Garcia, Legion of Mary, Reconstruction and all things JGB. Guitarist/vocalist Mike Lawson performed over his years in the SF, CA area as a regular featured guitarist for his mentor, Merl Saunders, in Merl Saunders and His Funky Friends at the annual Haight Street Fair whenever Merl wasn't playing with his touring group "The Rainforest Band," and frequently opened for them as a solo act or with a band of friends at venues like Sweetwater, The Fillmore, Great American Music Hall, and The Maritime Hall. This amazingly talented group of musicians have put together a fun, entertaining show that pays homage to the music that Saunders and Garcia loved to cover, from blues and R&B to classic Motown, Rock and Psychedelic music of the era.
