Jerry Garcia Band Cover Band

Formed in Athens, GA in 2012, JGBCB has been filling a hole in the Grateful Dead scene  by offering up spirited covers of classic songs pulled exclusively from the repertoire of  the Jerry Garcia Band, Garcia’s long-running side-project. JGBCB has played shows from  Key West to Colorado, exciting audiences with performances of beloved Garcia tunes not  found within 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!
