Come and hang with family and get geared up for the DSO show at The Palace with great drink specials, lots of family, great vibes and the incredible sounds of the Garcia Project recreating the Jerry Garcia Band experience!
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.
