The Gerry Jarcia String Band is a group of seasoned musicians based out of Johnson City, NY who are quickly expanding their fan-base with the mission of sharing hard-driving rhythms and catchy Old-Time tunes to the ‘next town over’. Revivalists with Rock N Roll hearts, they play old music that still resonates today and their audiences can’t help to dance, hoot, and holler well after each show ends.
And, if you’re picturing a Grateful Dead tribute band, think again. They play a range of covers and original music inspired by the music that encompassed Jerry Garcia’s roots. Their rip-snortin’ old time dance music has packed shows over capacity, and most important: they’re all about having FUN. So pack your dancing shoes and join us on Friday, April 5 at 8pm for the Gerry Jarcia String Band. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 day of show. Advance tickets are available at wslr.org or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
The Gerry Jarcia String Band is an acoustic melange like none-other. All shows they’ve headlined thus far have been flooded with excitement. The music is timeless and the players are talented. Whether it means throwing in a tribute song, laughing about the state of the world, or even bringing in a caller for an impromptu mid-show square dance they are, above all else, dedicated to keeping their crowds smiling, legs shaking, and toes tapping.
