On Saturday, June 30, The Grateful Web presents the Dead & Company Official AfterParty featuring The Garcia Birthday Band Overflow Live Steam at the WOW Hall.

With the Dead and Company in town for the Autzen Stadium concert, Grateful Web is hosting Portland Oregon tribute act The Garcia Birthday Band for two shows at Whirled Pies (8th & Charnelton, Eugene).  The Saturday night show is already sold out, so Grateful Web will present a live streaming of the show one black west at the WOW Hall (8th & Lincoln).  Deadheads will be able to dance on the WOW Hall’s fabulous floating dance floor and see and hear the performance both in the Main Hall and in the basement concessions area (aka beer garden).

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.

Always sure to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rockin’, hoppin’ and shakin’, the band’s quickly growing fan base finds the community spirit and kind vibes contagious! Music-lovers with a wide variety of tastes enjoy GBB’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, James Brown, Warren Zevon, Rev. Gary Davis, Marty Robbins, Bruce Cockburn, Phish, and Peter Tosh, to name a few… No two GBB shows are ever alike and the band always strives to bring a true-to-life traditional vibe to each and every performance!

With musicians hailing from the likes of New Riders of the Purple Sage (NRPS), David Nelson Band, Kingfish, Cubensis, the Buds of May, the Ike Willis Band, Brothers Jam and LOOS3, the band is certain to provide high musical adventure!

Band members are Arthur Steinhorn (drums), Scott Gillan (bass/vocals), Justin Pacuska (guitar/vocals), Peter Bach (guitar/vocals) and Adam King (keyboards/vocals).

Rumor has it the Merry Pranksters will be hanging out at both venues providing artwork and ambiance.

Doors open at 10:00 pm and showtime is 11:00 – 2:00.  Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door.  Admission is free with a wristband for the Whirled Pies performance.
