Melvin Seals & JGB:
Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist and producer. Melvin is most revered for  his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin  spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what  has  now become  "Jam  Band  Music".  From blues to funk to rock to jazz, Melvin  Seals serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up.
 
Melvin and JGB brings an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the  table. With acoustic and electric ingredients and unique combinations of Zach Nugent's guitar  and vocals, Pete Lavezzoli's hearty drums and, of course, a heapin' helpin' of the wizard's magic on Hammond  B-3  Organ and keyboards. Along with backing vocals, the result is a most satisfying  blend of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries. Their chemistry is the focus  from which they create a spontaneous and high art where the sky is the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience  dancing and smiling (and some staring in amazement) for hours.
 
In addition to the often played staples, the band has recently been exploring the back catalog and  performing a ton of super rare tunes, some of which The Jerry Garcia Band played only a fewtimes  over all those years.
 
Adding his rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no wonder  Jerry nicknamed him "Master of the Universe". Melvin continues to treat music lovers to his  unique brand of melodic flavor with JGB. Come see and hear for yourself!

Boogie Low: Boogie Low is a acid reggae funk band based out of Syracuse, NY. Inspired by great jams and high energy crowds. We love you!
Los New Yorkers: Los New Yorkers is comprised of four close friends from Upstate New York. Children of the 70’s and 80’s we have been influenced by the best and the worst. We now humbly make our own original music. It is a unique mix of sound and light in which the four of us change instruments often. Our sound is fun, upbeat and crafted to assist the party that is life. We have been at this a while around fireplaces and fire pits with acoustic sets. Notorious shows at the Scottage have been well documented.

Since jacking in we have been beyond lucky to share the stage with and play for some great people. We are sincerely grateful for the musicians that have helped and support us and to our fans, who without them we would still be fire side. Our goal is to keep on keeping on. Writing, playing and recording music until the end of time. We really do like people so come out and introduce yourself!
