first_imgWell this should be a fun one! On February 25th, 2017, at the famed Warfield venue in San Francisco, bassist Oteil Burbridge will make his debut with the beloved Melvin Seals & JGB. The bassist has spend the last year as part of the newest project to feature members of the Grateful Dead, Dead & Company. This will only allow Burbridge to take his appreciation to the next level.Melvin Seals has been faithfully carrying on the torch of Jerry Garcia’s solo project, which focuses on more of an R&B catalog of covers than Garcia’s original music. Expect Oteil to rise to the occasion, bringing his upbeat demeanor and lightning-bolt-shaped hairstyle into this wonderful band.The show will also feature original JGB vocalists Jackie LaBranch and Gloria Jones, as well as famed guitarist Stu Allen. This should be nothing short of excellent, with Allen’s faithful recreation of Garcia’s tone combined with original members of Garcia’s band, and Oteil Burbridge on the bass.Check out the artwork below, and head here for the details.last_img read more
