I had a great experience working with 99Designs and the winning designer, Sam_Joo. I received quite a large number of entries including numerous iterations from Sam. He was quick to make changes I asked for as well as showing me varying colors, fonts, and minor alterations. I'd be happy to work with Sam again in the future.

Logo types to explore
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
We play to a hippy crowd. Our music is similar to the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers. I would like people to have an idea that we are similar by seeing the logo.
The current logo is weak but it has elements that seem to make sense. It is a Ouija broard planchette that is shaped like a guitar pick and the hole in the center is like a guitar sound hole. The two dots below the hole are guitar string pegs. The font is similar to the Allman Brothers. You don't need to use these elements, but I wanted to descibe them in case you find it inspirational.
We are unlike other bands in that we have 3 acoustic guitars. This lets us play quiteter gigs than if we had bass and drums. We play coffee houses and music festivals. When we play coffee houses or restaurants we like to play so people can enjoy being social. That is our goal, to create a community around the event. We want people to be able to interact and not have to focus on the music. When we play festivals we jam the shit out of the music, put on a show, and play loud :)
We don't want to give anyone the idea that we are a strum fest. People see three acoustic guitars and they think we are old folkies who all strum the same muddy chords. In contrast, we each have very specific roles in the music and each player finds his own space and we leave a lot of space for the listener to be an active participant too.
