Event Details

Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist, and producer. Melvin is most revered for his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become "Jam Band Music". From blues to funk to rock to jazz, Melvin Seals serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up. Melvin and JGB bring an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity, and remarkable chops to the table. John Kadlecik on lead guitar and vocal duties, John-Paul McLean's savory bass, Jeremy Hoenig on the drums, and, of course, a heapin' helpin' of the wizard's magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards. Their chemistry is the focus from which they create a spontaneous and high art where the sky is the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience dancing and smiling(and some staring in amazement) for hours. Adding his rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no wonder Jerry nicknamed him "Master of the Universe". Melvin continues to treat music lovers to hisunique brand of melodic flavor with JGB. Come see and hear for yourself!

Because of the rise of the Delta variant, The Double E will begin requiring proof of vaccination via an immunization record card (or a high-quality image of it) and a matching photo ID starting September 1st, 2021. The safety of you, the artists, and our team is our number one priority. We've been sure to disinfect the T Rex between each use and provide hand sanitizer in and around our facility, and we've also installed the highest-quality air filters in the six HVAC units that ventilate the interior of The Double E. The state of Vermont has done a phenomenal job at getting vaccinated, so we hope this new policy won't prevent too many people from joining us. If it does preclude you from enjoying our indoor entertainment, we encourage you to get a shot and join us for a show! Current ticket holders who decide that this policy does not work for them must request a refund before September 20th. Our outdoor shows will remain unaffected by this new rule.


Box Office Opens: 6:00 PM
Double E Doors: 6:30 PM
Theater Doors: 7:00 PM
Showtime: 8PM
The Band will be performing two sets


The Double E: T Rex Theater

This is a reserved seating show in the T Rex Theater. The Double E Performance Center is home to The T Rex Theater - a 400 seat multipurpose events space that hosts blockbuster movies, the best-sounding concerts, engaging speaking events, live-streamed programs, and private rentals as well! Our theater is outfitted with 400 plush chairs that make for the most comfortable concert-going experience in Vermont. 

The Double E has been hard at work during the pandemic to prepare our spaces for the return of community gatherings. Our indoor space is served by multiple HVAC units each utilizing CDC recommended filters. Additionally, the room is cleaned between events by our staff. We will be monitoring guidelines, but ask all guests to please be vaccinated if you plan on attending this show. 

Tickets are available via our website, DoubleEVermont.Com, via our ticketing partner, SeeTickets.Com or at the door during any of our other events. At this point in time, The Double E does not host an in-person box office outside of our regular event hours.

  • Unless otherwise listed, our shows are all ages. All guests need a ticket to reserved seated shows. Much like an airline, we will welcome well-behaved babies who can stay seated on their parent's laps. We ask that parents remove loud or distracting children and cooperate if our concert staff asks you to do so. 
  • Drinks are allowed in the theater; cupholders are available with each chair 
  • Dancing is more than welcome! We will never ask you to sit down, but please be aware of your impact on your neighbors. Folks are welcome to dance in aisleways so long as they follow the directions of our concert staff. Folks may be asked to vacate aisleways at times and dance in their seat. Seat aisles are larger than most theaters! 
  • Concerts often feature visualizers, flashing lights, and fast movement 
  • Tickets are nonrefundable unless the show is completely canceled

Our venue is completely ADA Accessible. Row H features wheelchair-accessible space, as well as accessible seating. If special accommodations will make your visit more comfortable, please reach out to us at Info@DoubleEVermont.Com
