2015 Jerry Day Music Lineup

  • 11:30 am: Check Engine Acoustic
  • 12 pm: Terrapin Family Band – Formed spontaneously through many wild jams at Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads, the Terrapin Family Band has become the venue’s official House Band. Terrapin Crossroads’ constant free bar shows, often featuring Phil on bass when he feels like playing, created an opportunity for the musicians of the Terrapin Crossroads’ family to perform together and with a diverse cast of visiting musicians.
  • 1 pm: Melvin Seals and JGB has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist, and producer. Melvin is most revered for his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become “Jam Band Music.”
  • 3:30 pm: Stu Allen & Mars Hotel, a tribute band based out of the San Francisco Bay Area, emulates the feel, excitement, and energy of the Grateful Dead at their peak. Filled with jam band veterans and Grateful Dead enthusiasts, this band is sure to please even the most discriminating dead-head.
