Level with the Ground The Coastal Phunketeers My mailman/bassist John Darroch invited me over to jam with him and Darren Sleno drumming. In the midst of plowing through some of the tunes I try to sing, we took flight in a free-form funk jam. it was PHUN(ky)! Those guys can play! I just tried not to trip over my fingers.

Brian Liddle with Dennis Fox, Neko and Teflon Dave ~ A Liddle Goes A Long Long Way This is an original song by the bassist, Brian Liddle, played at the Cranbar Jam in beautiful Cranberry, BC, Canada. The vocal volume is weak, especially in the first verse, and my lead guitar come in right sharply with the change in cameras. This video was shot and edited by Dennis Fox. His Facebook and YouTube pages are well worth a visit. Cheers, and ¡Viva los Blues!

recently acquired a Warmoth Mahagany Tele with Lollar Soapbar P90s, and I thought I'd do a little demo. I'm playing through a solid state Fender Princeton 65, dry at first, then through a Zoom MS-50G Multistomp pedal, accompanying a loop I laid down on a DigiTech Jamman looper pedal. She's a squawky li'l git-tar!

Dave Dennis Brian Neko Jammin at the Cranbar. For once my guitar could have been louder. (!) C'est la vie. Nice to have my old friend Brian Liddle ((aka Father Christmas) up on stage with us again on bass & vocals. Dennis Fox sounds great on his '59 Jazzmaster, and Neko is the rock, as usual.

Trouble with the bass (Ska Ska Ska) is an original ska jam from a recent gig with Dennis Fox and Whoever Rocks. (In this case I was one of the "Whoever") This particular night was a loosey goosey jam-based night which was reasonably successful in the artistic sense, but not so much commercially ~ 4 people in the audience, although they stayed till the end, and danced quite a bit. For more great tunes go to Dennis Fox's Fandalism page http://fandalism.com/forfoxsake/ I appear on some of his posts, but there are also great numbers featuring Sam Hurrie, Ron Campbell, and others.

Money Honey by Little Marty and the Folk Art Farms Impromptu Blues Ensemble Not sure who wrote this one. From the last set Saturday night at the 3rd Annual Folk Art Farms Music Festival of 2017, four guys who have never played all together, although some have played with others in different lineups or jams. Our festival host, G-Man (Gary Thompson) holds down the beat on drums; Little Marty lights it up on vocals and harmonica; Warren Fletcher wields the bass guitar; and I, Teflon Dave (Dave Spragge) claw at my Jazzmaster guitar. To no-one's particular surprise, wah-wah is heard. The locale is Whiskey Creek, which is located on Vancouver Island, Canada.

Let the Good Times Roll (Nogoodniks & Ne'er-do-wells cover) Nogoodniks & Ne'er-do-wells perform the Louis Jordan classic "Let the Good Times Roll". According to Wiki, "the song was written by Sam Theard, a New Orleans-born blues singer and songwriter, and was co-credited to Fleecie Moore, Jordan's wife, who never wrote a lyric in her life (however, her name was sometimes substituted for Jordan's to get around an inconvenient publishing contract; this strategy backfired when Louis and Fleecie divorced acrimoniously and she kept ownership of the songs he'd put her name on -- thus denying him any income from them). Nogoodniks & Ne'er-do-wells is Dennis Fox, vocals & bass guitar, Paul Murphy, drums, Erik Eriksson, keys & bg vox, David Spragge, guitar & bg vox, Howie Brown, saxophone (alto here) and special guest Ray Gonzales, tenor saxophone. Performed at the Cumberland Hotel, Cumberland, BC, Canada.

Teflon Dave and Friends at the Fanny Bay Inn Jam The Ryder Hawkins Band hosts a jumpin' jam session every Sunday afternoon at the Fanny Bay Inn in (surprise!) Fanny Bay, on beautiful Vancouver Island off the west coast of Canada. Here's a montage of tunes that we jammed with an 8 piece crew. Unfortunately the camera was jostled a bit, so you can't see much of me, and the harp player behind me is totally invisible. L-R we have the unseen Mick Sherlock, harmonica / Dave Spragge, guitar & vox / Robb Flannery, drums / Darryl Milne, bass / James Lambert, guitar / Danny Zanbilowicz, keys / Les Ford, bari sax and Rob, tenor sax. Eight jammers = a mushy mix, but we had fun!

Black Magic Woman cover by NME. Here's the New Mother Earth performing "Black Magic Woman", a song that most people associate with Santana.

On guitars are Dave Spragge and Teva Mcgillis, on keys is Erik Eriksson, on bass is Cal Juraschka, and on drums Mike Berman. Unfortunately Teva's wireless gave out in the middle of his solo.

On bass guitar is my brother from another mother, Doug Saunders. The keyboard player is my old friend Ron Campbell, and the slide player is my mentor, the great Sam Hurrie. The song, Leanne, was written by Omar K Dykes, and it's dedicated to my wife Leanne. Sorry for the camera angle; it's the only place I could find to set it up. I need to find someone who will run the camera for me and actually focus on different people from time to time. Oh well, at least you can see me. LOL

High on a mountain top, written by the great Marty Stuart. I haven't filmed anything lately, so I thought I'd post an oldie. This is from a dance we played at back in 1995. I've got a bit of a rock tone for such a country song, but oh well. Garnet Avery, vocals and mandolin, Dennis Fox, bass guitar and vocals, Paul Murphy, drums and yours truly "Teflon Dave" (before I got my coating) on balls out guitar.

Jamming with Bella Bean. Here's something in a totally different style. Our wee dog Bella is either a singer or a music critic. Don't judge my playing; I was only farting around to get Bella to sing. Miss Bella Bean is a Poodle/Bichon/Border Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua/Pomeranian, which gives her voice that special timbre.

So a couple of weeks ago we went into the studio to record some rough demo tracks for a cd to give club owners in hopes of getting a gig or two. Here I am at my ripe old age and this is only my third time in the studio. We're live off the floor, except my vocals were overdubbed. The mix could be better; I think the keyboards are a bit loud, but nonetheless, here's the New Mother Earth version of the Omar and the Howlers song "Hard Times in the Land of Plenty". NME is Dave Spragge, Guitar and Vocals, Teva Mcgillis, Guitar. Cal Juraschka, bass guitar, Erik Eriksson, Keyboards and vocals, Mike Berman, drums, and Paul Murphy, percussion and vocals. Peace out.

Here's a Throwback Thursday video for y'all. This is me and my old friends in a group we called the 4 Players. (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink) Garnet Avery on vocals and acoustic guitar, Dennis Fox on bass guitar and bg vox, Paul "Blind Boy" Murphy on drums and me, "Teflon Dave" Spragge on electric guitar and bg vox. This is from the early 90s, I would guess. This group will likely be getting back together at a "Jamapalooaza" soon; I will try to post something from that.

Here's another take on Young Jessie's "Mary Lou", performed here by the New Mother Earth (Lite). Paul Murphy, vocals and percussion/ Teva Mcgillis, guitar/ Erik Eriksson, keyboards and Dave Spragge, guitar. This is the stripped-down, no frills NME band playing on a Sunday afternoon on the patio at the Royal Coachman Neighbourhood Pub in Campbell River. I dig the way Teva is kind of hidden behind a bush, like Bigfoot. Pardon the possible overindulgence in guitar solos; Paul likes to hear me ramble on.
