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.

Plus we will have Dan Crea on Bass sitting in with us and Stella’s. Dan plays in the hot dead band “Fennario” and the JGB tribute “Don’t Let Go”

The JERRY JAM in new hampshire on July 29 is going to be a fun time as well. The Garcia Project headlines Friday night with a smokin couple of sets of JGB tunes and Supplication Headlines Saturday night with a couple of Dead sets.

In August, we get to open for the Assembly Of Dust at the Live Free Festival in Lorraine, NY. Its turning out to be quite a nice summer!

Keep on the lookout for a few special show announcements coming soon….We are just waiting on confirmation, but it will be a hot run!

Thanks for staying in the scene and for all your support! 

Peace…Mik

WOW. What a great time!

Playing at shepard park in Lake George is a nice experience not matter what is going on. But, with the crew from Improv Records and Millis-Robbins productions….we made it into a real show!

So many nice folks came out and we got to meet a ton of friends from Facebook too! I cant say enough good things about this event though, the vibes was positive, it didnt rain, JT Maple and Jay white were fantastic…Thank you, for a real good time!

Recreating The Jerry Garcia Band Experience

We all love the Jerry Garcia Band and family and sharing the music that we love is a wonderful thing. Jerry Garcia liked so many different songs and bands and thats one of the things that made the Jerry Garcia Band special!

Over the next few months we will be working on creating some great sets of reconstructed Jerry Garcia Band shows for your enjoyment. If you have a favorite Jerry Garcia Band show, let us know and we will make it one of our sets coming up!

We are also planning some fun surprises with tunes that Jerry Garcia might have chosen for the Jerry Garcia Band to play….What? Do we have a crystal ball? How can we choose these? Well, we do our best to find music that would have been a good fit and sometimes its a song that just seems like it would be fun to hear the Jerry Garcia Band play! Got any ideas for those tunes? Let us know! Thanks!

Welcome to our new web site!

The Garcia Project has lived on Facebook for just about a year now. We love being able to communicate with our friends and fans on that platform, but we also see a need to have a place where we can store all of our media and do some more things that work better on a web site.

Take a look around and please feel free to give us feedback on our guestbook page – if you have an idea for the site or just want to say hi!

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope that we will have the opportunity to play in your hometown soon!
