August 1, 2022 would have been Jerry Garcia’s 80th birthday. August 9, 2022 is the date that marks Jerry’s passing, 27 years ago. August 1 – August 9 is what we, Jerry’s fans, refer to as “The Days Between”.
For more than the last decade, The Garcia Project has celebrated the life and musical legacy of Jerry Garcia by performing full, classic Jerry Garcia Band set lists. Starting July 29, The Garcia Project will embark on a multi-state tour, taking the band and fans to Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, and Vermont.
Kicking off the tour at Soundcheck Studios in Pembroke, Massachusetts on July 29 & 30, The Garcia Project will give fans two nights of Jerry Garcia Band music, performing a different era each night. On August 1, the band and fans will celebrate the anniversary of Jerry’s birth and what would have been his 80th birthday at The Stone Church in Brattleboro, Vermont.

The Garcia Project
Celebrating 12 years of touring the USA performing full, classic Jerry Garcia Band set lists from 1976-1995!
The Garcia Project’s performances are based on actual set lists performed by The Jerry Garcia Band. All of their shows are classic recreations of a Jerry Garcia Band set list from 1976 to 1995. For anyone that never had a chance to experience the Jerry Garcia Band or for fans that want to relive a classic show, The Garcia Project delivers.
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.

The CD and other merchandise will be available for sale at this show. The Spirit album and the digital download are also available now at www.thegarciaproject.com/spirit
Praised by Dennis McNally (Publicist for The Grateful Dead), 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 12 years.
“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
“With faithful arrangements and period-correct gear and a dynamic ensemble use of conversational dixieland-style improvisation, space, and crescendo and diminuendo, the Project brought the Electric Church treatment to an exceptional show originally played by Garcia’s band in Santa Barbara on February 5, 1977. Kat’s vocals on “Stir It Up,” Dan’s loping bass solo on “Simple Twist of Fate,” Smiley’s keyboards, and Mik’s graceful channeling of the singing and playing of Garcia lifted up a roomful of new believers. Highly recommended. “ — MusicFest News
“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 JGB shows from that period.” — Bob Minkin, legendary Grateful Dead and Jerry Band rock photographer
“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
“The Garcia Project’s attention to detail on intonation and performance structure does set them apart as an authority on Jerry Garcia.” – NYSMUSIC
“If you close your eyes, you’ll swear you are at a Jerry Garcia Band show.”
– ecoLocal Magazine
“It was hard to tell that it wasn’t Jerry signing on “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.” – NYSMUSIC
“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.” – Upstate Live
