Tea for Twelve

Terra's Love Child was Jason's project that pretty much began it all. It was with Terra's Love Child that Jason was asked by Vivian McPeak  to play acoustically at Seattle's very first pre-HEMPFEST rallies in 1990 at Gasworks Park (the early phases of what we now know as the three-day long HEMPFEST). Back in the day, Jason's stage was a picnic table and there were about 30 people in attendance.   

Mama Troll, with guitarist Jon Memolo, Rob Grunhurd on bass and Steve Harris on drums was formed during the beginning of the Seattle grunge era with a sound leaning more towards "alternative hippy grunge"  similar to Mother Love Bone. Mama Troll later evolved into Tea for Twelve.

Mr. Brownstone got no wisdom
Nor my whisky bottle too
The stars said I’ll be lonesome
God I hope it ain’t the truth
I dream in color baby, ohh, you know that I do, yes I do
I dream in color baby, Lord you know that I do, yes I do
But when I dream of you girl,
I dream in blue
 
Now my herb don’t have the answers
It only gets me high
My pills just take the edge off and barely get me by
I dream in color baby, Lord you know that I do, yes I do
Well, I dream in color baby, Lord you know that I do, yes I do
But when I dream of you girl,
I dream in blue

 I may be living with the devil
And I’m running from the law
So run away from me girl
You might be better off

I dream in color baby, ooh, I do, Lord I do
Well, I dream in color baby, Lord you know that I do, yes I do
But when I dream of you girl,
I dream in blue, yeah, I dream in blue
Well, I dream in blue, Lord I do, I dream in blue,
I dream in blue, Lord I do

The Voodoo Roosters was Jason's blues project with his good friend Scott Moughton back in the mid-'90s. 

Jason was joined by Darren "the Anchor" Milsom on bass (CUZINIT, M80s, Spazmatics), Scott Moughton on lead guitar and Howdy McFarland on drums.  This was a post-grunge era project.
