On Saturday, October 12, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and KRVM’s Short Strange Trip proudly welcome the JAM into the Dead Show featuring Tour Heads Caravan and The Almond Butters Band plus special guests Mina and Jeremy Wegner.


 The Almond Butters Band is a collective of well known local musicians that digs in the Americana dirt of the Dead, Allman Brothers Band, The Band, Dylan and more.  The Almond Butters Band loves rootsy Rock N Roll and jamming between the raindrops.

Featuring Marty Chilla (vocals and guitar) from the Sugar Beets, Patrick Kavaney (vocals and lead guitar) from Sonic Bent, Mike Gelardi (keys) and Kris McBride (bass) from Us and Them and Beau Eastlund (drums) from Halie and the Moon and many other bands.


ABB was voted “Best New Act of 2018” by attendees of the WOW Hall and has been rockin’ the PNW over the past couple years in such venues as Wildcraft, Sessions Music Hall and Sam Bonds.



Many years ago, about four or so, Keith Allen and Carlitos Peres we’re drumming up some Grateful Dead Jam ideas to bring to the WOW Hall stage in Eugene. They gathered bass players, guitarists, drums and percussion all in order to celebrate good old Yamon Pete. Well the jam ensued and every week since that time folks have gotten together in honor of the legacy and musical life of one Jerry Garcia and the band The Grateful Dead.


We lost Keith Allen almost two years ago to throat cancer.  Taking up the reigns from his drum kit and keeping the momentum going of the Family Jam is Carlitos Peres with support of founding members Trey Longstreth and David Parrish.  The cast of characters on the weekly rotation includes Elizabeth Cable, Boris Canani, Rob Weiss, Shawn Jackson and Christine Allen.  They all consider themselves “Luckey” to be alive and dancing to the music that never stops.


Mina Wagner is a soulful nineteen-year-old singer-songwriter, strumming and crooning away the blues in Eugene, Oregon.  She is accompanied by her Dad, Jeremy, known for his fretwork with Eugene’s immortal Sugar Beets and a slew of other acts.  Jeremy may be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of his solo release, Nevermind the Triangles.

Tickets are just $8 in advance, $8 at the door.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 8:30.
