Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years, most notably as the high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organist/keyboard player in the Jerry Garcia Band.
Seals spun his B-3 magic with JGB for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer what has now become “jam band music.” From blues and funk to rock and jazz, he serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up.
At LOH, John Kadlecik (Furthur, Dark Star Orchestra, Phil Lesh & Friends) will be featured on lead guitar and vocals alongside John-Paul McLean’s savory bass, Pete Lavezzoli’s hearty drums and, of course, a heapin’ helpin’ of the wizard’s keyboard magic. The band will be joined by Mary eL and Lady Chi on backup vocals. Plus, special guest trumpeter/vocalist Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band).
Together, they offer a joyful, often psychedelic musical journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience swaying—and smiling—for hours.
Choose your own adventure!
In an effort to keep the atmosphere friendly and fun, we’re offering two seating experiences for Melvin’s performance:
If you’d like to sit close to the action with the freedom to stand and groove in place, choose a General Admission ticket in the orchestra level. Orchestra seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you’d prefer to have an assigned location where those around you remain seated during the show, grab a Reserved ticket in the balcony.
