Jerry Garcia Band 1975-12-19 Winterland

Dive into the early days of the Jerry Garcia Band with this electrifying show from Winterland Arena on December 19th, 1975! Witness the band finding its groove in its first year, weaving a setlist that blends Garcia and keyboardist Nicky Hopkins' solo gems with Grateful Dead favorites. The night opens with the sweet Southern comfort of "Sugaree" before launching into a reggae-infused "Catfish John." Get ready for some soulful R&B with a scorching take on "That's What Love Will Do To You," followed by the introspective ballad "Sitting Here in Limbo." The energy picks back up with the bluesy swagger of "While the Lady Sleeps" and the classic Elvis cover "Mystery Train." The second half features a tender rendition of "Come Play a Melody," the playful romp of "Pig's Boogie," and a fitting closer with the melancholic beauty of "Mission in the Rain."


This show is a must-hear for any fan of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead's extended musical universe. Enjoy
