7 WalkersFriday, July 27, 2012
First timers at Penn’s Peak…7 Walkers!!
Bill Kreutzmann, former Grateful Dead drummer, has a new band with a new sound and he is pumped. 7 Walkers is comprised of Kreutzmann, Papa Mali, George Porter, Jr. and Matt Hubbard. Their sound is an electrifying mix of New Orleans funk and classic Bay Area rock which they have dubbed “swampadelic.” Their name comes from the title of one of their songs and the band itself is a dream come true for both Kreutzmann and Mali. Papa Mali found his love of the Dead at age 15 when he and some friends saw the band at a Dallas gig. Kreutzmann played with the band for 30 years until Jerry’s passing and has been in a number of configurations with other Dead members over the years. None of those bands had him as pumped as he is about 7 Walkers though. Papa Mali teamed up with Grateful Dead songwriter Robert Hunter for their debut album; Hunter emailed the lyrics to Mali and then Mali shaped songs from them. Their next step took them back in time; they went into the studio and recorded their tracks on old-school analog tape machines. The band felt that recording the album that way gave it a more honest sound. “It was one of the best recording sessions I’ve ever been a part of,” says Kreutzmann. Like the Dead, 7 Walkers is a band not to be missed! Looking for a “new” sound to jam to? Why not check out 7 Walkers and their “swampadelic” sound?!
