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), and John-Paul McLean (JGB).

They’re among the most accomplished instrumentalists, singers and songwriters on the jamband circuit. Performing original songs by Melvin, Greg (with co-writer Robert Hunter), Lebo and Stu… with 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.

Their new album, “Live at the Oregon Country Fair” is available now on Amazon and iTunes. • • Upcoming Gigs
