Uncle John’s Band- Grateful Dead Experience
January 4 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$29.77
Attention all ‘Deadheads,’ come relive the legendary 1977 Grateful Dead concert at (then) Lakeland Civic Center as Uncle John’s Band will recreate this concert at the RP FUNDING CENTER on January 4, 2020 at 7:30 PM.
Formed in 1989 in Clearwater FL, Uncle John’s Band has kept the Grateful Dead fire aglow in the Southeast for nearly three decades. With three generations of fans spread across the U.S., UJB has provided thousands of deadheads with their weekly dose of authentic live Dead music. UJB has shared the stage with notable guests including Grateful Dead alums & related artists John Kadlecik, Tom Constanten, Vince Welnick, Merle Sanders, Melvin Seals, David Gans, and New Riders of the Purple Sage. Other noted guest sit-ins include Jeff Mosier and Jake Shimabukuro.
With this much history and community, it makes sense that Uncle John’s Band was invited to play for a VIP party at Chicago’s Field Museum each afternoon of the Grateful Dead’s 3-day ‘Fare Thee Well’ run at Soldier Field in 2015. In addition to regular appearances on the Florida festival circuit, UJB’s reputation for excellence has allowed the band to maintain a consistent year-round schedule at many of Tampa Bay’s favorite venues.
In a world overflowing with Grateful Dead inspired tribute bands, it is rare to find one that consistently captures the essence and groove of the Dead’s engine firing on all cylinders.
