Immediately following the parade • On Third St. in front of Hotel Oregon • All ages welcome
After Garcia Birthday Band‘s float wraps their parade appearance, come “dancin’ in the streets” as they park in front of the hotel for a few more hours of ‘Grateful Jams’!
Garcia Birthday Band (GBB), based in Portland, Oregon, is a group of veteran musicians interpreting and celebrating the vast repertoire of the late Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead.
But this isn’t a “tribute band!” Drawing on years of individual and shared experience, these players are able to craft and transform these tunes into something fresh and original. Solid chops, tight arrangements and fine harmonies all contribute to the band’s musical travels and explorations of possibly the greatest and most diverse songbooks of all time.
