About this project
The video above is The Garcia Project performing a 1977 era version of "Friend of the Devil"
The Garcia Project, from Saratoga Springs, NY, is dedicated to performing the music of the Jerry Garcia Band and performs full classic Jerry Garcia Band shows from the 70's, 80's and 90's. Xtra Ticket, from Arizona, performs spot-on versions of the extensive musical calatog of the Grateful Dead. Dave A'Bear, guitarist and vocalist from Xtra Ticket, is also the guitarist and vocalist for Melvin Seals and JGB Band.
Xtra Ticket and The Garcia Project are teaming up to perform three electrifying shows together on May 2, 3, 4, 2014. The May 2 show will be at THE BALLROOM at Outer Space, in Hamden, CT. The May 3 show is a music festival in Coatesville, PA. The May 4 show is at The Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, PA.
We would like to provide the best experience possible for the fans and we need your help to get US ON THE BUS and SHAUN ON A PLANE!
If we can make this a successful kick-starter, we will plan more great collaborative, musical concert experiences in the future. If funding goes over, we will use those funds to supplement travel and artists expenses and maybe have a nice meal together :)
Your support with our kickstarter campaign will help us get veteran JGB sound technician Sean Wilson to mix all there shows at the front of house sound board. Sean is an incredible talent on the sound board and will help to make this experience sound fantastic for all of the fans. Sean is on board with us and ready to make this happen.
Your support will also allow both bands to travel together in one large vehicle with a trailer, lowering our carbon footprint (instead of driving 4-6 different vehicles) for this tour and allowing us all to bond and enjoy each others company as we travel.
We are very happy to provide all backers with some collectible and quality awards for this campaign. Here is a look at the awards:
Collectable VIP Laminates get you into the show and backstage as well!
All T-Shirts are a nice quality shirt with a limited run "Dos Garcias" print and tour dates. Any size you need will be available.
Personal Acoustic Show

Risks and challenges
We are dedicated to this tour already, so it will happen! Once we receive funding, every award will be awarded and we will fly Shaun in, rent the van and get ready for the shows.
The only setbacks we can foresee are auto breakdowns, plane flight delays or other mechanical failures. None of the awards are in jeopardy though!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
