The headlining band of the night was none other than Melvin Seals & JGB, keeping up the torch of the Jerry Garcia Band with its beloved keyboardist. Opening the show was guitarist John Kadlecik and his band, another disciple of Garcia who made waves as the lead guitarist of Furthur with Bob Weir and Phil Lesh.Kadlecik not only opened the show, but he also emerged at the end of JGB’s set for two classic songs.
