The Garcia Project LIVE at Cohoes Music Hall on Sept. 23, 2022
MUSIC HALL ARTS ALLIANCE PRESENTS THE RETURN OF THE GARCIA PROJECT with opening set by ACOUSTICALLY SPEAKING!
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.
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. They recently finished their new album called “Spirit: a tribute to Jerry Garcia and the spiritual songs he performed”, produced by Maria Muldaur and featuring Jerry Garcia’s bandmates Peter Rowan, Jacklyn LaBranch, Buzz Buchanan and Maria Muldaur.
"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…sometimes 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
“I became an official member of The Garcia Band in 1977 through 1979…. 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, they are channeling it. 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
