The Couch Slugs

As a college student in Athens, Ohio I met two townies and started a band.  Originally billed as Dave Tarter and the Plaqueheads we eventually became The Couch Slugs.  I left Athens upon graduation (June 1987) and the band went on for a full 20 years.  We were a dance/bar band and played a lot of great tunes – James Brown, Talking Heads, Chuck Berry, and so on.  Below are a couple of tracks from May 1987.

Playing Out with Friends

No shows booked at the moment. Or, there are shows but maybe I’m not able to play them. Check Wasted Potential Brass Band’s website.
