Garcia Birthday Band
Garcia Birthday Band (GBB), based in Portland Oregon, is the Pacific Northwest’s premier Grateful Dead experience! Formed in 1999, GBB is a group of veteran musicians celebrating and interpreting the vast repertoire of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead, and bringing to life the good ole’ vibes that were contagious ‘on tour’ back in the day. But this isn’t a “tribute band”… Drawing on decades of individual and shared experience, GBB crafts and transforms this great music into something fresh and original. Solid chops, tight arrangements, and fine harmonies all contribute to the band’s musical travels and explorations of one of the greatest and most diverse songbooks of all time.
