Calling all Deadheads to Silverthorne

Special to the Daily

SILVERTHORNE The Silverthorne Pavilion welcomes Grateful Dead tribute band Shakedown Street featuring Melvin Seals, former musical director and keyboardist for the Jerry Garcia Band, on Thursday.

Shakedown Street, which consistently draws large crowds in the Rocky Mountains, has garnered a national reputation as being the mother of all Dead bands. The band has been performing for over 19 years and still includes original member Ted Galloway from Manitou Springs on guitar and vocals, David Recker from Evergreen on guitar and vocals, Joe Weisiger from Denver on keyboards, organ and vocals, Trevor “Bones” Davis from Salida on drums and vocals, Jim Allard from Denver on bass and vocals and Jake Wolf from Denver on drums and vocals.

Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist and producer. He has played with legends such as Chuck Berry, Charlie Daniels and Elvin Bishop. But perhaps Melvin is most revered for his powerful and high-spirited Hammond B-3 organ and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band, adding his gospel-soul touches to the rhythm and blues base of the JGB. Melvin continues to treat music lovers to his unique brand of melodic flavor with his latest projects, Vitamin B-3 and The Mix, Melvin Seals JGB Band and Melvin Seals Rhythm Factory. Doors to Thursday’s show will open at 8 p.m. with music beginning at 8:30 p.m. Advance tickets are $15 and available at the Silverthorne Recreation Center by calling (970) 262-7370 or at Affordable Music in Dillon. Tickets will also be sold at the door. The concert is open to all ages.
