Check out our recordings at the Live Music Archive.
Phuncle Sam is Asheville's own Dead~Centric "jam band". Since their formation in 2004, Phuncle Sam has been firmly rooted in musical exploration. The band serves up inventive interpretations of Jerry Garcia, Grateful Dead and many others. They have built up a faithful following by using an approach that respects the improvisational traditions of The Dead, while exploring what can happen when individual band members bring their unique influences and interpretations into the mix.

It’s time to “Do It In The Woods.” That’s right, two nights at Deerfields. The music…Off The Hook! Two nights of Phuncle Sam, Ralph Roddenbery Band, Josh Phillips Folk Festival, Bobby Miller & The Virginia Dare Devils, Pond Brothers Trio, Wyndy Trail Travelers, Vertigo Jazz Project, Devils in Disguise, Jarvis Jenkins, Skywalkers, Jaime & Forrest, Andrews Usher Band, Dukes of Lizzards, Local Honey, and you never know what else may evolve from such a fine line-up. Things are gonna get fun. We do not have a curfew on Friday night. That means whenever Phuncle feels like ending their set is fine. Then, Vertigo Jazz Project is gonna bring it on Home! They can jam as long as they want. It sure would be nice to hear them at sunrise…you never know!
