San Geronimo celebrated the release of there debut CD, Better Days, with a sold out Grate Room show at Terrapin Crossroads.
They were joined by Terrapin restaurateur Phil Lesh, bass player from the Grateful Dead, for two Dead tunes (Brown Eyed Women, Friend of the Devil) and Phil then played on a San Geronimo song, Soul.
Then the band continued to give a high energy deeply felt full on Rock And Roll show! Really, they kicked ass! Lead and pedal steel guitarist Dave Zirbel has amazing skills, fluid, precise, beautifully played. Drummer Danny Luehring delivered powerful rhythm, and bass player Kevin White kept the crowd grooving after Phil left. Vocal duties on the soulful lyrics were shared by Darren Nelson and Jeremy D’Antonio, both of whom also play guitar in the band,and write the songs.
San Geronimo were originally called Tiny Television, with roots in Colorado. They evolved and changed names, and a couple of players, while they held residency at Terrapin Crossroads, being the regular Thursday night bar band there for quite a while. They continue to jam there on a regular basis, and some members have been parts of various other Terrapin Nation bands, including Cosmic Twang, Colonel and the Mermaids, Phil Lesh and Friends, and Terrapin All Stars.
They’ve really grown into a strong hard rocking band with country flavors, deep Americana, bluesy, soulful, and always a good time.
I’ve been really enjoying their new album! They worked hard to produce it, and came out with an album of worthy songs and sounds. I definitely recommend giving it a spin. It’ll fast become a favorite.
It’s a pleasure to hear new original music in the Grate Room at Terrapin Crossroads… Not everything from Terrapin needs to be a Grateful Dead cover or sound alike. Good new music is always welcome! These guys rocked, one of the best bands I’ve seen there. They filled the house with fantastic sound and their fans had a good old time!
