Garcia Birthday Band (GBB), based in Portland, Oregon, is a group of veteran musicians interpreting and celebrating the vast repertoire of the late Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead.

But this isn’t a “tribute band!” Drawing on years of individual and shared experience, these players are able to craft and transform these tunes into something fresh and original. Solid chops, tight arrangements and fine harmonies all contribute to the band’s musical travels and explorations of possibly the greatest and most diverse songbooks of all time.

Always sure to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rocking, hoppin’ and shakin’, the band’s quickly growing “GBB Family” fan base finds the community spirit and kind vibes contagious.

Music-lovers with a wide variety of tastes enjoy this band’s extensive playlist which includes classics from Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Cliff, Traffic, Dr. John, Merle Haggard, The Meters, Neville Brothers, Buddy Holly, Otis Redding, Warren Zevon, Rev. Gary Davis, Bruce Cockburn, and Peter Tosh, to name a few. If your musical tastes range from rock-and-roll, country, R&B, blues, bluegrass, folk, or Americana, you will dig this band. No need to be a Deadhead.

    Since the recent passing of Robert Hunter, I have been contemplatively listening (albeit religiously) to the Dead. Was fortunate enough to bring my partner to see Dead and Co out in the Gorge and she in turn made me a GD birthday cake <3. This is our favorite venue and would love to attend.

    I need a miracle everyday…

    What more could one ask for of hearing the music from famous artist be back to life by a talented group.

      The lp Live/Dead pretty much changed my life when I was 17 (Summer 1976). I was still 9 months away from my first Grateful Dead concert (4/22/77) and I listened through headphones on my Fisher stereo to Live/Dead on a nightly basis. The performances are soaked in acid and burst through in 3 dimensions of psychedelic weirdness that, to this day, place me on the floor of the Fillmore in SF on 2/27/69, when most of the album was recorded. Mind you, summer of ‘76 I was still feeling my way as an uncomfortable teenager. Somewhat inexperienced and protected in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Comfortable in some ways, uncomfortable in more ways. This album, along with voracious reading about the Beats, the San Francisco 60’s, particularly The Grateful Dead, Kesey’s Cuckoo’s Nest, Kerouac, et al, set my course. Discovering bad Mexican weed and taking my first hit of acid added to the mix and next thing you know the GBB are performing a 50th anniversary tribute to the recording that started it all for me. Live/Dead is in my DNA. I would love to hear GBB’s interpretation. Thanks for considering.
