Legendary keyboardist Melvin Seals is still going strong after more than 30 years in the music industry. Melvin Seals & JGB are gearing up for a Winter Tour that will take them to both coasts over the next two months. As always, fans can expect setlists dotted with choice selections from the Jerry Garcia Band’s live repertoire.
First up for Seals & Co. is a performance featuring special guest guitarist John Kadlecik at The Warfield in San Francisco on February 20. The band then heads to the East Coast for a two-week run that starts with saxophonist Ron Holloway sitting in as special guest at Gypsy Sally’s in Washington, DC on February 24. Gigs in Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut follow including a visit to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester on March 4. Later in March, Melvin and the gang play a pair of shows in California.
There’s also an exciting collaboration for the band planned at this year’s Wanee Festival as Melvin Seals & JGB will be joined by special guest Karl Denson for their set at the Live Oak, Florida festival.
