Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band are keepers of the jamband flame, paying tribute to their fallen founder with every note. There are dozens of Grateful Dead tributes and side projects but only one man is fit to carry on as JGB’s frontman.
Apart from original songs "Deal" and "They Love Each Other,” Seals popularized with the Grateful Dead as JGB was Jerry Garcia's outlet for performing eclectic, soul and gospel-tinged hits by songwriters he admired including Smokey Robinson, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Cliff, Chuck Berry, and Irving Berlin.
Melvin spun his Hammond B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so, helped defined what jamband music is today. As nicknamed by Garcia himself, come see the Master of the Universe’s powerful presence in The Warehouse.
