In 1983, Mike and Brian
McMenamin took over a somewhat seedy bar on Hawthorne Boulevard, and
transformed it into the Barley Mill Pub – which means it’s McMenamins 36th
Birthday! We’re celebrating just how the neon
lights, Grateful Dead memorabilia, historic barley mill and iconic beer were
symbolic of so much more to come from the brothers McMenamin.
Garcia Birthday Band • 3 - 6 pm
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.
Always sure to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rocking, hoppin' and shakin', the band's quickly growing "GBB Family” fan base finds the community spirit and kind vibes contagious.
Music-lovers with a wide variety of tastes enjoy this band's extensive playlist which includes classics from Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Cliff, Traffic, Dr. John, Merle Haggard, The Meters, Neville Brothers, Buddy Holly, Otis Redding, Warren Zevon, Rev. Gary Davis, Bruce Cockburn, and Peter Tosh, to name a few. If your musical tastes range from rock-and-roll, country, R&B, blues, bluegrass, folk, or Americana, you will dig this band. No need to be a Deadhead.
With musicians hailing from the likes of New Riders of the Purple Sage (NRPS), David Nelson Band, Kingfish, Cubensis, Nine Days Wonder, Buds of May, Ike Willis Band, Brothers Jam and LOOS3, this band is certain to provide high musical adventure!
