We had so much fun on the Mare Island Waterfront this May with Melvin Seals and JGB with special guest Stu Allen, we couldn’t resist asking them all to come back for another show along the Napa River in Vallejo over Labor Day Weekend. Presale Tix are now available for this very special Labor of Love Live Music Event happening Saturday 9/3. DO NOT MISS this very special family friendly outdoor concert event.

Mr. Hat Presents the legendary MELVIN SEALS & JGB performing live at the Mare Island Waterfront Arts Park in Vallejo CA. This is an outdoor, all ages, Labor of Love Weekend Spectacular Event. Featuring an opening set by very special guest STU ALLEN. With a liquid lightshow by LYA'S LIQUID LIGHTS.

A unique and unforgettable live music experience for the whole family along the Napa River on Mare Island amongst stunning Burning Man Art Installations, flanked by local artisan craft, food & drink vendors, with spectacular waterfront sunset views and a psychedelic light show after dark. Plenty of room to dance, sit and play on the spacious outdoor promenade with a crystal clear high quality sound system.

Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long established reputation as a performer, recording artist and producer. He is now reaching legendary status, and this year he is performing around the country with Oteil & Friends and with symphony orchestras for the Garcia Family as well as with JGB. Melvin is most revered for his powerful high-spirited Hammond B-3 organ, and as the keyboard player on the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin spun his b-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what is now known as "Jam Band Music."

Melvin and JGB bring an intuitive expressive style, soul, and spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. They will take you on an exciting, psychedelic musical journey that will keep you smilin and dancin.
