About the Event
Cover at the door
Uncle John's Band was formed in 1989 in Clearwater Florida by a group of talented musicians who love to play the music of the Grateful Dead.
UJB has played thousands of hours of Grateful Dead music from Chicago to Key West, but mostly centered around their home base of Tampa Bay Florida. Their weekly shows at Tampa's legendary Skippers Smokehouse created a Thursday night "church" for the deadicated for 23 years.
The band has also enjoyed many appearances on the Florida music festival circuit (Gasparilla Music Festival, Magnolia Fest, Magnolia Ball, Orange Blossom Jamboree, Home Team Rally, Daytona Summer Concert Series, to name a few) but thrives on stretching out on 2 or 3 extended sets during a typical evening show.
To quote a tune: "Anyone who sweats like that must be alright." We hope to see you at a show soon
