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. Its about family, soul searching, rejoicing, contemplating, celebrating, seeking truth and loving one another. Its The Garcia Project.
Kat Walkerson adds heartfelt and soulful female vocals to the mix. She brings an awesome energy to the project and you can feel her love for this music though her singing. She exudes positive vibes and her smiles are a testament to her appreciation of the music. Kat has had the pleasure of singing with Melvin Seals and JGB, Stella Blue's Band, Legion of Jerry, to name a few bands.
Mik Bondy fills the "Jerry" role with modesty and an understanding that no one can replace Jerry - but that we all together can rejoice in his music. Mik has constructed two tribute guitars and a recreation of Jerry's actual guitar amps, effects and speakers. Mik loves to jam and has played with his other band "Tapestry" for over twenty years. A long time jerry-head, Mik enjoyed the last few years of Jerry's life following the JGB around whenever he could.
Tom Lee has played in numerous groups from the 60's on through today. He used to have a crack equipment crew to haul his Hammond B3 and leslies back in the day but now enjoys the marvel that is the new Hammond XK3C and a new road leslie! Tom fills the keyboard role and really gets into it. Since adding some GD Jerry tunes to the mix he has added some piano sounds as well and really fills up the air with some heavy swells!
Hey now everyone,
For over 15yrs I've been a gigging/session drummer from central Massachusetts who is fortunate to play in all kinds of bands and with all kinds of great musicians in the central and western portions of Mass. I play with bands/projects that range from jazz, organ funk, hyper-eclectic blues-funk-rock to bands with Dead heavy set list. I even have a couple GD/Jerry based projects in the works for next year! If you're from or ever around these areas of Mass, let me know or check out my (shameless plug) facebook page as I usually post any gigs I'm doing there. https://www.facebook.com/Drumma75
And if you or someone you know is a pro/semi-pro level player looking for a drummer in the aforementioned locations, let me know! Especially if it's Dead related ;)
Thanks for your time!
I'm an old deadhead, so glad I made it! I've been "out of touch" for a few years but so glad to be back. I'm a musician who plays a very unusual instrument, a "Prizim" which is a glorified Autoharp. 37 strings. I have just uploaded a bunch o dead tunes, including Terrapin, Eyes, Birdsong and some others. Bluesy Black Peter.
take a look, enjoy. Website is coming in a few weeks.
this is my first original song solo (instruments;l), would love to play in a band but for now solo is better than nothing!
Let me know what you think!
Better late than never...Been writing songs since the early seventies, and just put out a CD "One Long Skid vol.1" I finally had time to go back to the station and pick up a few of my cars that I left off years ago! Hope some folks like it, and pass the word. A little reckoning maybe...
Keep on Skidin'
I played in a band called Single Shipper for four months. We played pop-punk/ grunge (kind of different for these forums i know lol) we didnt play any shows because of money and travel problems. But we split cos' my drummer was heavily envolving himself around drinking and pot smokeing which was affecting his playing and concentration. But also cos'..... he wanted to play speed metal. A: Not really too much into that & B: I'm not that and what I mean by "that skilled" I mean "THAT SKILLED" enough to play that kind of music haha. I'm mostly good at three/four chord progressions, covers (Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, Social Distortion, Sublime etc...) But before that and to this day I'm a solo artist and would rather prefer that over being in a band :)
