Vocalist Gloria Jones was a longtime member of the Jerry Garcia Band who first performed with the group in 1983 and remained a staple of the lineup through Garcia’s passing in 1995. Jones will make a rare live appearance at a venue that hosted more Jerry Garcia Band performances than any other, when she guests with Melvin Seals & JGB at The Warfield in San Francisco on Saturday night.
Melvin Seals revealed the exciting news in a Facebook post that reads, “I can’t hold it in any longer…my good friend and original JGB member, Gloria Jones, will be our VERY special guest at The Warfield this month! This is the first time in many, many years that Gloria has shared the stage with us or performed this music. It will truly be one magical evening. We really hope you can be there!” In addition, former Furthur/Dark Star Orchestra guitarist John Kadlecik will perform with Melvin Seals & JGB on Saturday.
Tickets for the show, which will be opened by the David Nelson Band, are available via AXS.com. Melvin Seals & JGB kick off a Northeast Tour at Gypsy Sally’s in Washington, D.C. on February 24.
