For over a decade, Bobby Thompson (Blue Heart Revival, BobbyThompson Project) and Jenny Langer (Moonshine Society, Ron Holloway Band) wereadmirers of each other's musical work as well known blues artists. Finally in2021, the duo got together for fun to do a single live-streamed tributeperformance to the music of Delaney & Bonnie.
Fans loved their sound together so much that they overwhelmed the duo withrequests for more shows. Now their concerts have expanded to bring audiences afull electric tribute to the music of Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, whichhistorically included Eric Clapton, Gregg Allman, Duane Allman, GeorgeHarrison, Leon Russell, Dave Mason, and more.
The all star supergroup lineup includes 15-time Wammie awardwinner Eric Scott (bass/vocals), Nashville/DC guitarist Buddy Speir (guitar,vocals), and renowned drummer Andy Hamburger.
The Jerry Tripsters came into being as a cobbled together ensembleformed on the spot to fill an empty slot at a local Grateful Dead festival.From the first song played together the chemistry was undeniable, the audiencewanted more, and the band was eager to oblige.
Members of the Jerry Tripsters come from some of the most accomplished GratefulDead and Jerry Garcia tribute acts in the DC/MD/VA region including Better OffDead, DC Mystery Cats, On The Bus, Splintered Sunlight, and Stewbone. Their canvas is the extensive work of Jerry Garcia with a focus on the JerryGarcia Band, but they add their own special flavor to the songs that have beenthe soundtrack
to many of our lives.
As Jason Herman from DC Music Review says, “It should be stated that this bandis not a note-for-note tribute to the music of Jerry Garcia. Whatdifferentiates this band from others is that the performance embraces and istrue to the original works, yet more readily welcomes the jam exploration byeach artist on stage. The Jerry Tripsters were meant to be playingtogether.”
When you come see a Jerry Tripsters show, we can promise you threethings:
Joy: The smiles of the band members and audience are everpresent and infectious.
Jam: With the wink of an eye or a sly nod, The Tripsters are notafraid to take songs to unexplored musical directions.
Jerry: The Tripsters dig deep into the Jerry Garcia catalogwhile focusing on the all-time favorites that the audience knows and loves.
Like all good trips, The Jerry Tripsters don’t know where the journey will takethem but there will surely be many adventures along the way. We inviteyou along for the ride.
