theCAUSE is a band consisting of 4 Pittsburgh musicians who have all been around the proverbial block.  Playing tunes from Grateful DeadPhishThe BeatlesBob Dylan and MORE, including some very tasty originals, theCAUSE packs a punch while still paying close attention to the delicate touch. The players are Eric “Pappy” Weingrad on guitar and vocals (Double Dose, Pappy’s Blues Junction), David Tauberg on bass and vocals (Powers Run Band, Hard to Handle, Cherylann Hawk),  Mike South on drums (Left for Dead, Sticky, Russ Lauf Band) and, joining us in 2008, Pittsburgh blues veteran Jill Paone Simmons brings a whole new dimension to theCAUSE on vocals and continues to rock with us today. 

 theCAUSE also has had the pleasure in 2012 and 2014 of having  guitarist Steve Kimock join us on stage and in 2013, 2015 ,2016  and 2017 Jeff Mattson of Dark Star Orchestra spent an evening jamming with theCAUSE! Lisa Ann Mackey from Dark Star Orchestra sang with us in 2017
