Celebrating the Summer of Love with Melvin Seals & JGB Performing at the Osher Marin JCC's 25th Annual Summer Nights Outdoor Music Series Kid Zone, Dinners, Dance, Picnic, Cocktails & Fun Saturday, August 5, 2017 @ 7:00pm The final outdoor Saturday night concert of the 2017 Summer Nights series at the Osher Marin JCC invites all to come celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the "Summer of Love" with Melvin Seals & JGB. Come as you were or might have been as we celebrate flowers, bell bottoms, tie-dye, peace, love, understanding and the amazing music that started in San Francisco. Melvin Seals is best known for his long friendship and musical partnership with cultural icon, guitarist Jerry Garcia and the smile of his that lights up the room. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become "Jam Band Music". From blues to funk to rock to jazz. With a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up, Melvin and JGB brings an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and unique combinations of guitar, mandolin, slide and lap steel with savory bass, hearty drums and, of course, a heapin' helpin' of the wizard's magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that keeps audiences dancing and smiling for an evening of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries. "As a progenitor of the jam band movement, Melvin Seals has solidified his place as a Rock & Roll Legend" The concert opens with a short performance from "Til Dawn", Youth in Arts teen a cappella group singing songs from the era.
