About The Garcia Project
The Garcia Project’s performances are recreations of full, classic Jerry Garcia Band set lists from 1976 through 1995. With precise arrangements and the proper instrumentation and feel for the various eras, 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. It’s about family, soul searching, rejoicing, contemplating, celebrating, seeking truth and loving one another.
In 2017, The Garcia Project’s guitar player, Mik Bondy, received two amazing Jerry Garcia Replica guitars, donated by Andy Logan and the Grateful Guitar Foundation. A Travis Bean and a (Leo Elliot – Scarlet Fire) Tiger replica where the two guitars of choice for this incredible gift. Mik played his replica Tiger guitar for the first time at a live show with The Garcia Project on August 1, 2017; a show presented by The Jerry Garcia Family as part of the Jerry Garcia 75th Birthday Celebration. Both guitars will be used on their upcoming tour.

Praised by Dennis McNally, the press, and fans, The Garcia Project has been recreating classic Jerry Garcia Band set lists with stunning accuracy and detail across the country for the past 11 years.
“I first met Jerry Garcia in 1974 when he asked me to sing harmony with him on his second solo album and started recording and sitting in with The Jerry Garcia Band whenever possible. I became an official member of The Garcia Band in 1977 through 1979 recording, gigging and touring with them, and have many fond memories of that unique experience! Recently, I was asked to sit in with a wonderful band called The Garcia Project, who lovingly and reverently recreate different specific sets of the Garcia Band in their hayday. They don’t merely recreate Jerry’s music, as far as I’m concerned, they are channeling it. Performing with them, I am moved and touched by how much the music moves the audience into a state of joyous community and rapture. The Garcia Project brings us all back to that special time and I’m excited and blessed to participate in giving new and old audiences alike, the chance to relive the Spirit & Magic of the Jerry Garcia Band.”— Maria Muldaur
“These players really get the soul of JGB, so If you love the music or are curious, come check them out!”— Andy Logan, Grateful Guitars Foundation
“I spent a lot of nights in a lot of places with the Jerry Garcia Band, and I’m here to say that I really enjoy what The Garcia Project does with those memories. Mik’s guitar and his and Kat’s vocals stir up some very sweet vibes…some times they almost make me feel like I’m back in, say, 1992 at the Warfield. Check ‘em out.” — Dennis McNally, former publicist for the Jerry Garcia Band
“For those of us who crave late 70’s (and through the 80’s and 90’s) Jerry Garcia Band, The Garcia Project scratches that itch for hearing live renditions of Jerry Garcia Band shows from that period.”— Bob Minkin, legendary Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band rock photographer
“If you close your eyes, you’ll swear you are at a Jerry Garcia Band show.” – ecoLocal Magazine, Albany, NY
“…it was hard to tell that it wasn’t Jerry signing on “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down….The Garcia Project’s attention to detail on intonation and performance structure does set them apart as an authority on Jerry Garcia.” – NYS Music
“In order for a tribute band to be successful, fans need to look at them as the authority on the artist they are emulating. The Garcia Project pulls it off effortlessly. Go see them live …The Garcia Project is the whole package.”– Jim Gilbert, Upstate Live
“The Garcia Project was on point with the whole experience and it didn’t seem like a cover band more like a mirrored band…they are just as real as the Jerry Garcia Band. “– Buffalo FM Review
“”Deadicated“ to carrying on the music and vibe of Jerry that so many still carry in their hearts.”– Albany Times Union
