City Park Jazz: Imagine featuring Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), Ray White (Frank Zappa), Damon Wood (James Brown) & Friends
July 31, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Melvin is best known for his long friendship and musical partnership with cultural icon and guitarist Jerry Garcia and the smile of his that lights up the room. 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”.
The best is yet to come. From blues to funk to rock to bluegrass, The Mix serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up. Each member of this powerhouse lineup brings an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. With acoustic and electric ingredients and unique combinations of guitar, mandolin, slide and lap steel with savory bass, hearty drums and, of course, a heapin’ helpin’ of the wizard’s magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards, the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries.
The Melvin Seals’ performances are a must see, must feel experience! Their music is guaranteed to get into your soul, raise your spirit and get you groin’!
