- About Me
Michael Morrow Band features the journeyman jam guitarist with a solid backing band, covering a vast and classic songbook, showcasing versatile and fierce guitar playing, and renowned signature vocals...uncanny, haunting and unmatched. Voted RELIX magazine 2009 Jam Off contest winner and recently on the short list for spots with Jerry Garcia Band and Dark Star Orchestra, Michael has consistently put smiles on Deadheads for years.
JGB bandleader Melvin Seals called him personally and flew him to St. Louis for an audition after hearing a 2009 live recording, saying "... it sounded so good. The voice and playing really took me back." In 2005, DSO called Michael "...the finest singer we auditioned...blown away." DSO auditioned MM at the Electric Factory in Phila, where he jammed with John Kadlecik (Furthur) and Rob Barraco. Michael has been called "One of the finest GD musicians in the country..." Organist John Bigham (Chubby Checker, Funkchurch) said "Nobody does Jerry better...best guy around." Michael was voted Top Ten "Best Of The Fest " with Mystic Rebel at 2006 Bethlehem Musikfest, a reviewer said "...the vocals were Dead on." Reading PA area jam promoter Chris Kratz at Plusvibes called Morrow "...one of my favorite guitarists."
Over the years, Micheal has performed with Bob Weir, Donna Jean, Dark Star Orchestra, Merl Saunders, David Grisman, Junior Marvin, Dave Matthews Band, Ben Harper, Jah Witness, Derek Trucks, Joan Osbourne, Warren Haynes, Peter Himmelman, Earl "Chinna" Smith, David Gans, Tom Constantin, Zen Tricksters, Pato Banton, Stevie Culture, Ihi Yahn Ihn Arkestra, Pamela Parker, Kingfish, Toni Brown, Marshall Tucker Band, Leon Russell, Splintered Sunlight and Living Earth. After more than a decade as a hardworking Jam,Funk,Reggae and Grateful sideman, finally Morrow steps out as a bandleader with authority.

Alongside Michael will be a tight backing band featuring drummer Stephe Ferraro (Boris Garcia), veteran Grateful bassist Jeff Wandling (Alligator, Bear's Choice, Dead Bolt, Groove Train Riders), stellar organist Matt Hahn (VW Project, Third Orbit), acoustic guitarist Paul Jameson and a pair talented vocalists Marci Segal and Autumn Walden bringing the sweet harmony.
