On Friday, February 8, The Grateful Web presents An Evening with Terrapin Flyer featuring Melvin Seals at the WOW Hall.

Terrapin Flyer with Melvin Seals from the Jerry Garcia Band are hitting the road again for their annual Mardi Gras Tour.  Approaching 20 years of tours with seasoned musicians in a constantly evolving lineup of the best of the Grateful Dead musician community, Terrapin Flyer has grown into one of the renowned Grateful Dead touring acts in the nation.  They are noted in the Rolling Stone’s Grateful Dead issue for their performances with former Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten.  For the fourth year, they will host the Chicago White Sox Grateful Dead Night at US Cellular Park on July 2nd with Constanten.   

Terrapin Flyer has become a sought-after act because it draws from a variety of skilled musicians including former members of the Grateful Dead and related bands.  With Melvin Seals, the band features one of the Grateful Dead scene’s most venerated figures.   Seals was voted the WOW Hall’s Favorite Male Performer for 2016 and 2017 and last year he was also voted Best Instrumentalist of 2017.

Melvin’s sound became such an important part of the Jerry Garcia Band that it is indelibly defined with his unique musical signature. Melvin is one of the finest Hammond B3 players in the world and dazzles in each and every performance.  He is revered by legions of fans and fellow musicians across the globe for bringing authentic gospel, jazz and R&B sensibilities to the improvisational realm.  And to Grateful Dead fans, he is one of the most important and vital links to the spirit of the Jerry Garcia Band’s music. 

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 9:00.
