Xtra Ticket Feat. Dave A'Bear

Xtra Ticket, Arizona's longest running Grateful Dead tribute, was formed in the summer of 1994 and fronted by Evan Jones and Dave Hebert of JGB. Since then, Xtra Ticket has continued to celebrate the music of San Francisco's legendary Grateful Dead, delighting audiences throughout the West. Ticket successfully uses the same sonic template as the Dead, complete with two drummers, keyboards, bass, and two guitarists specific to the Bob Weir and Jerry Garcia roles and interplay which proves an effective way to help recreate the magic of a live Grateful Dead performance. In 2011, Hebert was tapped by Jerry Garcia's longtime keyboardist Melvin Seals to be lead guitarist and vocalist of the Jerry Garcia Band (JGB Band). This musical outlet served to energize and stimulate an ongoing creativity that goes to the heart of the Grateful Dead catalog. It is our belief that we share a kindred spirit with other Grateful Dead tributes and Dead Heads the world over. We are indebted to band itself for creating this body of music and jamming style that celebrates life in all its beauty. Celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2019, Xtra Ticket looks forward to truckin' into the 21st century.
