Upcoming Gigs

TRC tours with regular randomness, in bursts of creativity and then they fade back to their regular gigs, so it is recommended that you catch them while you can!

Doobie Decibel System (DDS) features Jason Crosby, Roger McNamee, and Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz. These seasoned musicians can be seen touring the country with various projects -Crosby with Phil Lesh, Jenny Lewis, and Jimmy Herring; McNamee with Moonalice: and Lebo with ALO, Jack Johnson, and Steve Kimock. Together the trio is a mighty force!For this Winter 2019 Tour, they also welcome vocalist Erica Jeski who has sung with Dead cover bands from coast to coast, most notably Stu Allen and Mars Hotel, Scott Guberman and Friends, China Cats, and Matthew Hartle and Friends.On any given night, Doobie Decibel System play their original songs, such as “Wrong Side of The Road” by Crosby, “Couple of Puffs” by McNamee, or “Carry On” by Lebo and dip into the rock ‘n’ rollarchives, playing a variety of classics from The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and The Grateful Dead. The trio’s distinctive style is heard in every song while they continue to surprise the audience with their improvisations and unique arrangements.

BIO:

The Rock Collection is an all-star songwriting and performing collaboration with an amazing chemistry onstage. Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band/JGB), Greg Anton (Zero), Stu Allen (Phil Lesh & Friends), Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz (ALO), John-Paul McLean (JGB), and Stephanie Salva (Tumbleweed Soul).

They’re among the most accomplished instrumentalists, singers and songwriters on the jamband circuit. Performing original songs by Greg (with co-writer Robert Hunter, the Grateful Dead lyricist), Melvin and Lebo… and some choice cover-tunes… a Rock Collection concert includes extended improvisation, four-part harmonies, and dynamics that go from delicate ballads to blow-the-roof-off rock and roll.

Other incarnations of the band have included Mark Karan, Jason Crosby, Paul Lamb, Reed Mathis, Robin Sylvester and Sunshine Becker.

American Spring

“Some years ago, Robert Hunter began working on this song with Jerry Garcia…it was unfinished, he gave the lyrics to me, I wrote the music, The Rock Collection recorded it. It’s a rare political Hunter song….the words are powerful, compelling and painfully contemporary.” ~ Greg Anton
