Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist and producer. Melvin is most revered for his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band. 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, he serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up.

Melvin Seals and JGB bring an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. John Kadlecik (Furthur, DSO, Golden Gate Wingmen) on lead guitar and vocal duties with John-Paul McLean's savory bass, Pete Lavezzoli’s hearty drums and, of course, a heapin' helpin' of the wizard's magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards. Along with Lady Chi and Mary-eL on backup vocals, the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenge genre boundaries. Their chemistry is the focus from which they create a spontaneous and high art where the sky is the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience dancing and smiling (and some staring in amazement) for hours.

Adding Melvin’s rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no wonder Jerry nicknamed him "Master of the Universe". He continues to treat music lovers to his unique brand of melodic flavor with JGB. Come see and hear for yourself!
