The Englishtown Project
On September 3rd, 1977,the Grateful Dead headlined one of the largest and most musically successful concerts of all time at Raceway Park in Englishtown N.J. In addition to the Dead, who had just completed its legendary Spring / Summer 1977 tour featuring a batch of new material from Terrapin Station, the show also included the Dead family’s New Riders of the Purple Sage and the good-time, southern rock Marshall Tucker Band. This tribute extravaganza will feature healthy “doses” of selections from each band’s sets that day with a relaxed, festival style program.
Michael Falzarano (Guitar / Vocals) - After decades-long stints with Hot Tuna and the New Riders of the Purple Sage, Michael has earned nothing less than iconic status as one of the most authentic figures on the blues / jam band scene. Over the years, Michael’s evocative singing, intuitive guitar playing and songwriting skills have earned him a large and loyal following worldwide.
Rob Wolfson (Lead Guitar / Vocals) - Having already developed into a formidable blues rock player at the age of 12 by studying Eric Clapton and Jorma Kaukonen, Rob entered the world of Grateful Dead music in ’69 and has continued exploring ever since. Notable projects include Dead Sage, Joe Gallant’s Illuminati Orchestra and Dead Center All Stars, which he established in the late 90’s with the Wetlands Preserve Club and is still going strong today.
Scott Guberman (Keyboards / Vocals) - Scott has distinguished himself over the last several years as one of the principle keyboardists in many of Phil Lesh’s homegrown projects including Phil and Friends. Scott’s reputation as one of the genre’s best and most creative players is undisputed.He also plays regularly with many other significant musicians in the San Francisco Bay area when not touring nationally.
Tom Circosta (Guitar / Vocals) - Tom is one of the NY area’s most versatile guitarists and also happens to be the foremost disciple of Bob Weir, arguably the best and most unique rhythm guitarist in rock history. In addition to Zen Tricksters, Tom also plays with the unique Dead On Live and Jam Stampede.
Alan Learner (Drums) - Highly versatile drummer Alan Lerner is an in-demand session and live drummer throughout the tri-state area. Known for both his power and feel on the kit, Alan has toured with the prolific Joe Gallant & Illuminati and the Zen Tricksters. He’s played extensively with bass legend Jerry Jemmott, as well as gigged with Mike Gordon, Levon Helm and Hubert Sumlin.

Joanne Lediger (Vocals) - Joanne is a long-standing member of the Jam Band Family having spent decades with the seminal band Stir Fried and her recent stint singing lead in Reverend Jefferson, a band that explores the music of The Jefferson Airplane.
