The Garcia Project will do an eight-night run on the west coast in March 2018, focusing on the Jerry Garcia Band’s 1976-1978 set lists and performances.

Maria Muldaur will join The Garcia Project on March 14, 2019 at The HopMonk in Sebastopol, CA and also on March 15, 2019 at The Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, CA. These nights will celebrate the Jerry Garcia Band’s “Cats Under The Stars” tour from 1977-78, at which time Maria was a member of the band. “Cats Under The Stars” was Jerry Garcia’s favorite album and the tour was filled with great songs and energy.

Maria Muldaur is best known world-wide for her 1974 mega-hit “Midnight at the Oasis, “which received several Grammy nominations, and enshrined her forever in the hearts of Baby Boomers everywhere. She started recording with Jerry Garcia and sitting in with The Jerry Garcia Band in '74, joining the band officially from fall 1977 through 1978. Maria has recorded over 40 albums, and continues to perform Blues, Jazz, and Gospel both in the States and worldwide.

Maria Muldaur will be singing with The Garcia Project’s Kat Walkerson and Mik Bondy (guitar). They will be joined by band members Dan Crea (bass guitar), Tommy Nagy (drums) and Russel Lee Wheeler (piano). The Garcia Project is the nationally touring, critically acclaimed tribute to The Jerry Garcia Band. The Garcia Project performs full, classic set lists from 1976 - 1995. The Garcia Project faithfully channels and projects the feelings, emotions and music that propelled the Jerry Garcia Band and the fans through many years of musical bliss. It’s about family, soul searching, rejoicing, contemplating, celebrating, seeking truth and loving one another. It’s The Garcia Project.

"I spent a lot of nights in a lot of places with the Jerry Garcia Band, and I’m here to say that I really enjoy what The Garcia Project does with those memories. Mik’s guitar and his and Kat’s vocals stir up some very sweet vibes…Check ‘em out." — Dennis McNally, former publicist for the Jerry Garcia Band
