JMVAN Fundraiser – Limited Release Live CD and DVD "Dead Funk Summit Live At The Fox" Preview Clip 1

Update 1: Check a preview of the CD/DVD with this Crazy Organ solo by Melvin! JMVAN Fundraiser: Limited Edition Live CD/DVD – Dead Funk Summit Live at the FoxSo after 4 years and over 280,000 miles my beloved Mini Van is on its last legs. We found a lot of metal shavings in the Oil filter and the van is knocking. I've had a few people look at it and they all saw the van is toast. It will not be safe to drive to any more out of town gigs and could pop at any time. Unfortunately I still owe over $9,000 on my van. Bought in 2015 I was hoping to get 6 years out of it. It’s not going to make it that long. I’m afraid it’s time to retire this amazing van.As you all know I do between 250-300 gigs a year. Having a safe and reliable vehicle is of utmost importance to me and the many different band members I transport. As some of you know I live gig to gig and put every dollar I make into my lineups. Not having a set band makes it nearly impossible to save. So I am turning to y'all for help.I’ve dug deep into my vault in this time of need and decided to do a limited release of my first ever Live Album. It is my favorite show I’ve ever been a part of. “Dead Funk Summit Live At The Fox” will be a double disc CD and DVD of the JMB show with Melvin Seals and George Porter Jr at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, Co from June 6, 2018.In releasing this show I hope to raise enough funds to pay off my old van debt and get another used van to get back on the road (safely) and bring you the music!Pre Order period Oct 1st-31st.

He has two shows in his native Indiana before a five-date swing through Florida (no snow here — yet).

Marcinek then returns to the Midwest for more dates, including a special And We Bid You Goodnight show at Zanzibar in Louisville in tribute to the very first Grateful Dead appearance in Kentucky on 12.07.68. Then the guitar slinger joins the George Porter Jr. Trio for four shows in the South.
