GRATEFUL DEAD EXPERIENCE: THE SCHWAG
GRATEFUL DEAD EXPERIENCE: THE SCHWAG
GRATEFUL DEAD EXPERIENCE: THE SCHWAG is a band of musicians dedicated to carrying on the vibe and music of the legendary Grateful Dead. For nearly 25 years and with over 3,000 shows played all over the United States, we have been dedicated to preserving and perpetuating the music and vibe of the Grateful Dead. The Schwag has a working song list of over 200 songs from the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band catalog. For four years bandleader Jimmy Tebeau, also toured the country as the bass player for JGB (Jerry Garcia Band).

For many years The Schwag hosted its own Schwagstock music festivals drawing crowds of an average of 5000 people per event several times per summer. The band owned the venue Camp Zoe in Missouri where the festivals were hosted. Some of the bands opening for The Schwag at these festivals were George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Keller Williams, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and New Riders of the Purple Sage. Some of the guest musicians to play with The Schwag over the years include Chuck Berry, Bill Nershi from String Cheese Incident, Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman from Leftover Salmon, Butch Trucks from The Allman Brothers Band, Fred Tacket from Little Feat, Mike Gordon from Phish, and Vince Welnick from The Grateful Dead. Honorary band members for full Schwag shows include Merl Saunders, Melvin Seals, Johnnie Johnson, Jason & Travis & Kang from String Cheese Incident, and Devon Allman (Gregg’s son.)
