Melvin Seals & JGB
- What Jerry Garcia called Melvin Seals: “master of the universe”
- Why?: Seals helped Garcia develop the jam-band sound throughout his 18 years with the Jerry Garcia Band, all while also controlling the cosmos
- Seals’s ingredients for a good jam band: blues, funk, rock, and jazz with dashes of R & B and gospel
- His instruments of choice: Hammond B-3 organ, keyboards, his own powerful pipes
- JGB: Seals’s tight-knit band comprised of Dave Hebert (guitar and vocals), John-Paul McLean (bass), Pete Lavezzoli (drums), and Shirley Starks and Cheryl Rucker (backing vocals)
- Why their chemistry is a virtue: they create off-the-cuff, naturally evolving music that’s as spontaneous as it is genre-bending
