Cats Under The Stars returns to Goodfoot Lounge! We will start the Jerry jams shortly after 9:00pm, inaugurating a new line up (this is the ONE!): Tom Wright (guitar & vocals), Josh Biggs (drums) , Carey Rogers (bass), Keesha Wallace (vocals) and returning to the fold (after a one show absence) is keyboardist extraordinaire Steve Thun! This group has gelled wonderfully and we are having a blast playing classic Jerry Garcia Band music!
Closing out the night (starting at 11) is BORIS GARCIA, some *very* psychedelic jammers on tour from the East Coast, who recently have been working closely with Grateful Dead publicist Dennis McNally with the release of their new album Today_We_Sail.
During my 25 years with Grateful Dead Productions, I listened to a lot of jamming, both electric and acoustic. Recently, though I still work with Bob Weir, I've been approached by a fair number of bands to help them, and have usually not been moved enough by the music to say yes - until I heard Boris Garcia. They fuse a bluegrass/country/folk sound with a jazzy rock improvisation mode and really excellent songwriting. Some say it reminds them of Tom Petty, others of old Byrds. Either way, I like them, and want to share them with my larger family. So here y'are! ~Dennis McNally
