The Garcia Project Live at Cohoes Music Hall on May 21, 2022
About this event
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.
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. 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. 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
"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
