Terrapin Flyer: April Tour with Melvin Seals, Tom Constanten, Mark Karan


In April of 2013 Terrapin Flyer will embark upon a historic tour that will feature for the first time three Grateful Dead Family legends performing on the same stage together. The tour will feature Jerry Garcia Band’s Melvin Seals, Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten and Bob Weir’s Ratdog guitarist Mark Karan. Rounding out the band will be the JGB bnad’s Jimmy Tebeau on bass, former Cornmeal drummer JP Nowak and Terrapin Flyer stalwart Doug Hagman on rhythm guitar.

Terrapin Flyer is a Chicago-based Grateful Dead inspired band who for the last 12 years has toured with members of the extended Grateful Dead family. Previous tours have also included former Grateful Dead/Tubes keyboardist Vince Welnick and Grateful Dead alumni Bob Bralove. The first live performance together with Seals, Constanten and Karan is another achievement in the band’s excursion into the continued exploration of Grateful Dead related material.

This same lineup sans Tom Constanten recently performed to packed houses across the Midwest . With the addition of Constanten on this tour, it is sure to generate continued buzz about the future of what this band has to offer the music community. The 5 show tour will be in the Midwest at the following venues:

  • April 11th: Founder’s Brewing in Grand Rapids , MI
