GarciaLive Volume Eight presents the Jerry Garcia Band‘s November 23rd, 1991 performance at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI.
The fall ’91 tour as a whole is widely regarded as one of Garcia’s finest and this particular Saturday evening serves as a further testament to the legend. Fans in attendance at the Bradley Center braved an intense snowstorm and the audience’s palpable energy and enthusiasm was a likely catalyst for this spirited performance.
Keyboardist Melvin Seals summarized the group nicely stating ‘That was the magic band. It’s not that the other scenarios didn’t work out but once we got to that level of the band with (drummer) Dave Kemper, John Kahn, Jerry, myself and the singers, Jackie (LaBranch) and Gloria (Jones) we all knew we had something special. That was the band.’
Jerry Garcia Band: Jerry Garcia – guitar & vocals John Kahn – bass Melvin Seals – keyboards David Kemper – drums Jacklyn LaBranch – vocals Gloria Jones – vocals
RELEASE DATE: March 10th, 2017!

What I love about this track, is that Jerry is playing the hell out of it. I don’t know much about the show , yet. But I do see the enthusiasm in his playing and find that very exciting and inspirational . It’s revelatory to see Jerry and the band rocking it so hard.
