    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 DeadCenter All Stars, which he established in the late 90’s with the Wetlands Preserve Club and is still going strong today.

    Mark Mercier (Keyboards / Vocals) Mark has distinguished himself over the last few decades as one of the principle keyboardists on in the Jam band world. His band Max Creek has been on the scene since 1971 and are still going strong today Playing many shows and producing their own annual festival Strange Creek. He and they have carved out a firm space in jam band history

    Klyph Black (Bass / Vocals) In Klyph, along with Tom and Alan (below), the Englishtown Project is fortunate to have 3/5ths of the classic lineup of Zen Tricksters, the best and longest running Grateful Dead-centric band in the Northeast. Not only is Klyph an outstanding bassist, he is also an excellent guitarist and one of the most accomplished musicians on the Jam Band scene today.

    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 Lerner (Drums) Most fans of the Grateful Dead know what a great drummer Alan is. In addition to his long tenure with Zen Tricksters, Alan also drums for Joe Gallant and the Illuminati Mini Orchestra, Dead Sage, The Dead Center All-Stars and The Joni Mitchell Project.
