Jerry Garcia Birthday Show

Jerry Garcia Birthday Show

The Garcia Project will kick off their 3rd annual DAYS BETWEEN tour with a special Jerry Garcia Birthday show at Garcia’s at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY on August 1, 2019.

The Garcia Project pride themselves on their recreations of Jerry Garcia Band sets from 1976-1995.

And this celebratory Jerry Garcia birthday show – which falls on what would have been Garcia’s 77th birthday – will also include a StraxArt gallery of the guitarist’s artwork, with a special “Augmented Reality” feature.

There will be official prints for sale, and several works on display that “never before seen by the public.”

“In sharing his artwork, I get to share what his mind was like off of the stage; the kind of things he’d like to do to keep his hands busy,” Trixie Garcia, said of her father’s artwork. “I feel like artwork kept his mind challenged and stimulated.”

Tickets for A Jerry Garcia Birthday Celebration are available here.

Press:

“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 Band rock photographer

“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

“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
