The Southeast’s premier Grateful Dead tribute experience, keeping the fire aglow since 1990.
Uncle John’s Band was formed in 1989 in Clearwater Florida by a group of talented musicians who love to play the music of the Grateful Dead.
UJB has played thousands of hours of Grateful Dead music from Chicago to Key West, but mostly centered around their home base of Tampa Bay Florida. Their weekly shows at Tampa’s legendary Skippers Smokehouse have been a Thursday night “church” for the deadicated since 1995.
Over the years, UJB has enjoyed regular appearances on the Florida music festival circuit (Magnolia Fest, Magnolia Ball, Orange Blossom Jamboree, Home Team Rally to name a few) but thrives on stretching out on 2 or 3 extended sets during a typical evening show.
