The Holy Modal Rounders

The Holy Modal Rounders are a band that my Dad has loved for as long as I can remember.  As he grew older and focused more on his own music, he ended up becoming quite good friends with the band.  When I was in high school, they filmed a portion of their documentary in our basement.  It was quite the scene, I wish I could back back and appreciate it fully as an adult.  Steve Weber (picture, singing) used to attend our family holidays, as my Dad became a close friend.  Peter Stampfel is still in touch, he just put out a record with Jeffrey Lewis (think, Moldy Peaches)  The music makes me feel happy and strange.  They were pioneers of the psychedelic folk scene.
