Formed in 1989 in Clearwater FL, Uncle John's Band has kept the Grateful Dead fire aglow in the Southeast for nearly three decades. With three generations of fans spread across the U.S., UJB has provided thousands of deadheads with their weekly dose of authentic live Dead music.
In a world overflowing with Grateful Dead inspired tribute bands, it is rare to find one that consistently captures the essence and groove of the Dead’s engine firing on all cylinders. It requires the right combination of gritty improvisational-minded musicians with a wide palette of individual influences. It requires channeling the Dead’s unique sounds and styles, while avoiding the suffocation of mimicry. Finally, time is of the essence, lots of it. There are no shortcuts to developing the mind-meld that allows six musicians to communicate improvisationally and naturally through the Dead’s large and stylistically diverse repertoire.
