Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Sun, 02/14/2016 - 6:29 am

This is Dylan Muhlberg of Grateful Web here with Organ maestro, vocalist and bandleader Melvin Seals. Since 1981 Seals sat behind organ, piano and synthesizer for Jerry Garcia Band. His gospel, soul and blues influences were pivotal to the evolution of Garcia Band’s sound.  All the more remarkable, since the untimely passing of Garcia in 1995, Seals assembled a talented lineup of musicians to continue Jerry Garcia Band’s music.
