Last year, Bob Weir and his Campfire Band, John Mayer plus a super-JGB hit Red Rocks to celebrate Jerry Garcia’s 75th birthday. The mutant Jerry Garcia Band, dubbed the Jerry Garcia Birthday Band had such a good time, that they reunited this August for a pair of shows near the scene of the original crime in Vail, CO.
Most of the original Jerry Garcia Birthday Band reunited for the shows including Melvin Seals on keyboards/vocals, Tom Hamilton on guitar/vocals, Oteil Burbridge on bass/vocals, Duane Trucks on drums, Jackie LaBranch on vocals and Gloria Jones on vocals.
For night one, the Jerry Garcia Birthday Band put together what would pass for a bonafide classic JGB show. After two rip-roaring sets of Jerry tunes, the band came out for the icing on the birthday cake—a masterful version of “Shining Star.”
