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, he serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up.  
 
Melvin Seals and JGB bring an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. John Kadlecik (Furthur, DSO, Golden Gate Wingmen) will be on lead guitar and vocal duties with John-Paul McLean's savory bass, 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 Lady Chi and Mary-eL on backup vocals, the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenge 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.  
 
Adding Melvin’s rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no wonder Jerry nicknamed him "Master of the Universe". He 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!
