About Garcia Birthday Band

Good ol' Grateful Dead

Garcia Birthday Band

Garcia Birthday Band, based in Portland Oregon, isn't your mother's Grateful Dead cover band. Playing for over 20 years, GBB has evolved into something far deeper than the sum of its parts. The beating heart of the Pacific Northwest's GD community, the band's ever-expanding fanbase is an experience unto themselves. Using the Dead's repertoire as a springboard for limitless potential and improvisation, Garcia Birthday Band are a cornerstone of the modern Grateful Dead universe, and their fans have come to expect the unexpected as the norm.

Placing no boundaries on eras of the Dead's career or catalogue, and drawing on decades of individual and shared experience, GBB play the music through an auditory kaleidoscope. Composed of some of the most ace players of the Oregon live music community, the band makes every show an act of exploration, both musically and spiritually. United hearts and minds blur the line between the stage and crowd - a carnival of human potential. If you're new to Garcia Birthday Band, their doors are always open, and you'll recognize it as something familiar when you first walk in: a place called home.


About Bodhi Mojo

Bodhi Mojo

Bodhi Mojo is a psychedelic, five-piece jam band rooted in good feels, good grooves, and soulful vocals. Characterized by mind-bending jams and heartfelt songwriting, they never play the same show twice and leave you yearning for more.

Formed in 2019 Bodhi Mojo developed their following by performing at countless DIY festivals and house shows. After honing their sound, the band's following grew to support them in headlining and selling out some of Portland's top jam funk venues including the Goodfoot, The Get Down, and The Haven. Their latest pursuits include releasing a full length album 'Midnight Dojo' in July 2022, touring the PNW from Seattle to San Francisco, and hosting the premiere PNW Jam Band festival "Mojo Family Festival," entering its 3rd year in 2023, playing host to the best up and coming groove bands in the region.

Bodhi Mojo is made up of Jack McGrane on guitar and vocals, Chris Stein on guitar and vocals, Mike Ewers on bass, Harrison Games on drums, and Will Traylor on keys. Bodhi Mojo calls Portland, OR their home.
