Uncle John's Band
Jan 4, 2020
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
If you are a ‘Deadhead,’ come experience what it was like in 1977 when the Grateful Dead performed at the Lakeland Center. Uncle John’s Band will be recreating this concert at the RP Funding Center (formerly the Lakeland Center) on January 4 at 7:30 p.m.
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. Returning visitors to Tampa Bay join locals at the legendary Skippers Smokehouse for UJB’s weekly house gig, now running for over almost 1000 Thursdays, and frequently streamed around the world via Livestream. In its 20-year residency at Skippers, UJB has shared the stage with notable guests including Grateful Dead alums & related artists John Kadlecik, Tom Constanten, Vince Welnick, Merle Sanders, Melvin Seals, David Gans, and New Riders of the Purple Sage. Other noted guest sit-ins include Jeff Mosier and Jake Shimabukuro.
