Terrapin Flyer and Melvin Seals have been performing together nationally for the past 14 years. The band draws from seasoned musicians in a revolving lineup and often features former members of the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band. Along with Melvin Seals, this tour features bassist Janis Wallin from Steve Kimock’s Crazy Engine, Joe Chirco drummer from The Zen Tricksters, Josh Olken, Kara Cavanaugh and Doug Hagman from Terrapin Flyer.
Melvin Seals played Hammond B3 organ in the Jerry Garcia Band for 15 years and has honored Jerry’s legacy with his band JGB in the years since. He is considered one of the finest Hammond B3 players in the world and was revered by Garcia, and his legion of fans, for bringing authentic gospel, jazz and R&B sensibilities to the improvisational realm.
