The Garcia Project
March 2 • 8:00 pm• $5 – $25
From: Bob Fennessy, Publicist
On Friday, March 2, the Community Center for the Performing Arts, KLCC’s Dead Air, PharmFresh Flowers, Jamaica Joel’s and Twenty After Four proudly welcome The Garcia Project back to the WOW Hall. Special guests include The Merry Pranksters and The Psychedelic Express Lightshow.
The Garcia Project is the only nationally touring Jerry Garcia Band Tribute Band or Jerry Garcia Band Cover Band that performs actual full, classic Jerry Garcia Band era-specific set lists from 1976-1995. After making their WOW Hall and Eugene debut in November, The Garcia Project had this to say, “We LOVE you! Thank you to the staff and all the amazing Pranksters and The Godfather of light!” The band was so happy to play the WOW Hall that they immediately made another date. Dennis McNally, former publicist for the Jerry Garcia Band, has this to say, “I spent a lot of nights in a lot of places with the Jerry Garcia Band, and I’m here to say that I really enjoy what The Garcia Project does with those memories. Mik’s guitar and his and Kat’s vocals stir up some very sweet vibes…some times they almost make me feel like I’m back in, say, 1992 at the Warfield.” The Garcia Project faithfully channels and projects the feelings, emotions and music that propelled the Jerry Garcia Band and the fans through many years of musical bliss. It’s about family, soul searching, rejoicing, contemplating, celebrating, seeking truth and loving one another. Like Dark Star Orchestra does for The Grateful Dead, The Garcia Project is creating the Jerry Garcia Band experience for old fans to relive or new fans to enjoy for the first time. “The Garcia Project’s attention to detail on intonation and performance structure does set them apart as an authority on Jerry Garcia,” notes NYSMUSIC.
