The Garcia Project Ready to Heat Up Chilly Florida This Week

Have you ever heard of The Garcia Project? We hadn’t either. You do know about Dark Star Orchestra, the outstanding band that recreates actual shows from their setlists and, usually, audio evidence as well. That’s precisely what The Garcia Project does:

“The Garcia Project’s performances are based on actual setlists performed by The Jerry Garcia Band. All of their shows are classic recreations of a Jerry Garcia Band setlist from 1976 to 1995. For anyone who never had a chance to experience the Jerry Garcia Band or for fans who want to relive a classic show, The Garcia Project delivers.

With precise arrangements and the proper instrumentation and feel for the various eras, The Garcia Project faithfully channels and projects the feelings, emotions and music that propelled The Jerry Garcia Band and their fans through many years of musical bliss. It’s about family, soul searching, rejoicing, contemplating, celebrating, seeking truth and loving one another.”

The Garcia Project has been pursuing this dream for 11 years, and they recently released their new album called Spirit: a Tribute to Jerry Garcia and the Spiritual Songs He Performed. The album was produced by Maria Muldaur and features Jerry Garcia’s bandmates Peter Rowan, Jacklyn LaBranch, Buzz Buchanan, and Maria Muldaur. The CD and other merchandise will be available for sale at shows. The Spirit album and the digital download are also available now at

The Garcia Project features Mik Bondy, guitar, vocals; Kat Walkerson, vocals; and Dan Crea, bass.

The joy and the memories are heading South with the announcement of their Florida Winter Run, presented by Cosmic Barley and Get Laws’t Entertainment. They open in Boca Raton Wednesday, January 26, the beginning of a five-night run through Deland, Ft. White, Atlantic Beach, and Stuart.
