More about The Garcia Project:
Mik Bondy formed The Garcia Project in October 2010 following his love for the music of The Jerry Garcia Band and that there was no other bands performing it accurately. He constructed a couple of Jerry Garcia guitars that mimic the sounds and tones form the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s along with amps and speakers that replicate Jerry Garcia’s sound. In 2011 Kat Walkerson joined the band an elevated the vocals through the roof. With her beautiful, soulful voice, her and Bondy’s vocal duets are becoming something of legend. The band also features Bobby Belanger on drums, Dan Crea on bass guitar and Greg Marshal on keyboards. All of the members strive to emulate the sounds, playing style and feel of any given era of The Jerry Garcia Band. Some have said that The Garcia Project is the D.S.O (Dark Star Orchestra) of J.G.B.
With classic Jerry Garcia Band arrangements of “I Second That Emotion”, “How Sweet It Is”, “Catfish John” and more, the band caters to mainstream audiences and family as well as capturing the hearts of Grateful Dead fans. “If you close your eyes you’ll swear you are at a Jerry Garcia Band Show” was penned in an early review of the band and is echoed by many new fans at each show. And, not only is this a tribute band, it is a great band with incredible chemistry and musicianship.
Melvin Seals performs from time to time with that band through Kat Walkerson. Kat was chosen to perform a few shows signing with Melvin Seals and JGB before she joined The Garcia Project. Melvin has become a friend of the band and enjoys what The Garcia Project brings to the table.
The Garcia Project’s Mik Bondy is also a visual artist and creates unique works of art for each show poster. The Band happily signs and sells the posters in quantity after each performance. The Band also has sought after T-shirts and stickers that often sell out at each show.
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.
