On Sunday May 7, The Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly welcomes Terrapin Flyer to the WOW Hall.
Terrapin Flyer began touring in 2001 with Grateful Dead keyboardist Vince Welnick and then in 2005 with Tom Constanten, another Grateful Dead keyboardist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Also they toured coast to coast for 15 years with Melvin Seals from the Jerry Garcia Band. And over the band’s history so many iconic musicians have joined the band that Terrapin Flyer has been weaved into the fabric of the Grateful Dead legacy. Jambase recently named them one of the top 20 post-Grateful Dead bands in a list that included Phil Lesh and Friends and Bob Weir’s Wolf Brothers. Current lead guitarist Josh Olken is known as one of the best interpreters of Jerry Garcia’s playing. Bassist Wavy Dave also plays in the influential bluegrass band Cornmeal. The band’s provenance is evidenced in their authentic sound and attention to detail and that has gained them fans across the nation. If you like the Grateful Dead, you don’t want to miss this one!
