Prison is forced sabbatical for leader of Mo. band

ST. LOUIS (KFVS/AP) - A popular Grateful Dead tribute band from Missouri is taking a sabbatical - the result of a 30-month prison sentence for the lead singer.

Jimmy Tebeau founded the Schwag in 1991. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports he is headed to prison next week after pleading guilty to a federal drug charge. A final gig is Saturday in St. Louis.

For years, Tebeau hosted concerts on land he owned in Shannon County known as Camp Zoe. Some drew around 5,000 fans in a Woodstock-like environment.

The campground was raided during a Halloween 2010 concert. Prosecutors said the concert featured up to 200 dealers selling marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, LSD and other drugs.

Tebeau, from Cape Girardeau, was not involved in the drug sales but pleaded guilty to maintaining a drug-involved premises.
