Enjoy The Jerry Garcia Band Cover Band Live on FTE's BACK PORCH!

Just in! The Jerry Garcia Band Cover Band (JGBCB) is coming to rock the stage at our Back Porch series on June 22nd! Get ready for two full sets of Garcia classics. Formed in Athens, GA in 2012, JGBCB has been filling a gap in the Grateful Dead scene with spirited covers exclusively from the Jerry Garcia Band repertoire. From Key West to Colorado, they've thrilled audiences with Garcia's tunes not found in the traditional Grateful Dead catalog.

The Jerry Garcia Band (famously known to Dead Heads as "JGB") was as much a songwriting outlet for Garcia as it was a chance for him to cover the music he loved. Over the course of it's existence, JGB paid tribute to artists such as The Beatles, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, The Band, Jimmy Cliff, Smoky Robinson, The Rolling Stones, the Wailers, J.J. Cale, and Ray Charles. The list goes on and on, recalling the names of rock, soul, and folk royalty.

It is with a deep love of Jerry Garcia's music and the music that he loved that the members of JGBCB approach this project. The band came together for a single show in December 2012, which led to a weekly local residency in Athens. The positive responses they received ultimately led JGBCB to tour around the country, giving fans all over a taste of the music of the Jerry Garcia Band. Count on hearing different material from night to night, consisting of JGB staples and deep cuts. How sweet it is!
