Melvin Seals & JGB

Tue, Mar 6 at 9pm

This event has passed.

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. Melvin is most
revered for his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in 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 has now become "Jam Band Music". From
blues to funk to rock to jazz, Melvin Seals serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and
gospel thrown in to spice things up.

Melvin and JGB bring an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable
chops to the table. With acoustic and electric ingredients and unique combinations
of Zach Nugent’s guitar and vocals, John Paul McLean's savory bass, Pete Lavezzoli’s
hearty drums and, of course, a heapin' helpin' of the wizard's magic on Hammond B-3
Organ and keyboards. Along with Shirley Starks and Cheryl Rucker on back-up vocals,
the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenges genre
boundaries. Their chemistry is the focus from which they create a spontaneous and high
art where the sky is the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical
journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience dancing and smiling (and some
staring in amazement) for hours.

Adding his rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no
wonder Jerry nicknamed him "Master of the Universe". Melvin continues to treat music
lovers to his unique brand of melodic flavor with JGB. Come see and hear for yourself!
