Jerry's Middle Finger
Jerry's Middle Finger (JMF), a Los Angeles based band, performs and celebrates the music of The Jerry Garcia Band (JGB)... and is taking the west by storm.
With some of the strongest and most seasoned players and vocalists in the SoCal jam band community on their roster, they have been playing consistently to large audiences all over California, packing venues and getting rave reviews.
Lead vocalist and guitarist Garrett Deloian has toured the world on the blues circuit, but in JMF truly shines and and is able to explore his passion and lifelong love for the work of Jerry Garcia. His guitar tone has been hailed by many of his musical peers, along with Jerry fans around the country, as one of the best “Jerry tones” in the jam band scene today.
JMF’s rhythm section, with original JMF drummer Rodney Newman and bassist Son Vo (of Mother Jones and Freshly Baked), consistently locks in on the perfect grooves, dropping the band into strong, unrelenting pockets. The foundation they set for the songs pulls audiences onto their feet, energizing them to get up and move.
JMF has two outstanding powerhouse vocalists- Halina Janusz (of Mother Jones and Sugar Mountain) and Lisa Malsberger (of Grampa's Grass and The Rumrunners). Their smooth, rich vocal tones and soaring, stellar harmonies place JMF in a category all their own.
Jon Gold (Cryptical Development, Remnants of Eden) rounds out this awesome line up with some of the sweetest, funkiest, piano and "take me ta church!" organ accompaniment and solos you've heard. He manages to masterfully capture the tones of every era of JGB from Keith Godchaux to Melvin Seals.
Together, this JMF line-up has been thrilling audiences all over the west coast with their authentic and passionate tribute to the fantastic music of the Jerry Garcia Band, keeping alive a concert experience that fans hope will last forever.
