The Garcia Project
The Garcia Project
The Garcia Project faithfully channels and projects the feelings, emotions and music that propelled the Jerry Garcia Band and the fans through many years of musical bliss. It's about family, soul searching, rejoicing, contemplating, celebrating, seeking truth and loving one another. It's The Garcia Project.

The Garcia Project performs full, classic Jerry Garcia Band shows from the 70's, 80's and 90's – creating the Jerry Garcia Band experience for old fans to relive or new fans to enjoy for the first time.

"If you close your eyes, you'll swear you are at a Jerry Garcia Band show."
– ecoLocal Magazine

"In order for a tribute band to be successful, fans need to look at them as the authority on the artist they are emulating. The Garcia Project pulls it off effortlessly. Go see them live …The Garcia Project is the whole package."
– Jim Gilbert, Upstate Live

""Deadicated" to carrying on the music and vibe of Jerry that so many still carry in their hearts."
– Albany Times Union

The Band

Mik Bondy – Guitar & Vocals
Mik Bondy fills the "Jerry" role with modesty and an understanding that no one can replace Jerry – but that we all together can rejoice in his music. Mik has constructed two tribute guitars and a recreation of Jerry's actual guitar amps, effects and speakers. Mik loves to jam. A long time Jerry-head, Mik enjoyed the last few years of Jerry's life following the JGB around whenever he could. Mik has performed as guitarist with Melvin Seals and JGB.

Kat Walkerson – Vocals
Kat Walkerson adds heartfelt and soulful female vocals to the mix. She brings an awesome energy to the project and you can feel her love for this music though her singing. She exudes positive vibes and her smiles are a testament to her appreciation of the music. Kat has performed as a vocalist with Melvin Seals and JGB.

Dan Crea – Bass
Dan uses two Fender Precisions like Kahn used from '74 to '81, with American Special necks, EMG pickups with Alnico magnets and high mass bridges for clarity, and Warmoth bodies with custom bridge pickups and electronics (Mike Pope Flexcore in one and ACG in the other) to approximate the Steinberger tone when needed. Dan has performed with Melvin Seals.

Greg Marshall – Keys
Greg plays the piano part form the early Jerry Garcia Band styles and he excels at the Hammond Organ parts for 80's and 90's JGB styling's. He is an amazing keyboardist that loves the music of the Jerry Garcia Band. Greg has performed with Melvin Seals.

Bobby Belanger – Drums
Bobby is a solid and tight drummer that can bring the music down to whisper and back up with a roar. Bobby excels in the 70's era JGB styling's as well as the later eras.
