The Mighty High Band was formed in the Fall of 2008 with the intention of focusing on Jerry Garcia's other bands. We wanted to play all those other great tunes that Jerry played in the Jerry Garcia Band, Legion of Mary, Garcia and Saunders and Reconstruction.
Even though The Mighty High Band is considered a tribute to Jerry Garcia, we play songs from his catalog covering a broad spectrum of musical genres from old Motown standards, blues, rock, reggae, country, R&B,gospel, jazz and bluegrass.
Every performance played is guaranteed to get the crowd feeling good and dancing. The Mighty High Band and its members have shared the stage with bands/musicians such as :Bloodkin, Widespread Panic, Shakedown Street, the Dyrty Byrds, the Sam Holt Band, Max Creek, Dead Floyd, Banyan, Steve Kimock, Damon Wood and Harmonious Junk, Great American Taxi, Jaden Carlson, The Motet, George Clinton, Mike Gordon(Phish), Tori Pater, Leftover Salmon, Eric McFadden, Steve Molitz(Particle), JoJo Herman(widespread Panic), the Fox street All-stars, The Congress, Melvin Seals(Jerry Garcia Band), New Riders of the Purple Sage, ray White(Frank Zappa), Austin young, Oakhurst, The Zimmermans, Dewey Paul Band, Arnie Green, American Beauty.....
