The Maykers are a special tribute to The Jerry Garcia Band!

Catfish John

 In dedication and devotion to the musical  adventure of the Grateful Dead: Jeff Orr, Dusty Alander, Scott  Tillotson, Wyatt Rakich, Keith Alcantara and Jay Gavin bring back their  own interpretation of music that has inspired for 50 years! Born out of the love and  inspiration of their favorite Band, Catfish Catfish John is a collective  of serious players looking to express their affection and respect for  the music of The Grateful Dead. They are artists giving a unique take on  the music of The Grateful Dead. Catfish John performs raucous,  intuitive, wide-open jams, with stunning guitar and tight vocal  harmonies that compliment and complete their big full sound. 

QUACTUS

“Whether or not it is a long jam, a  short melodic run through of a memorable hook, or a rampage through an  outlandish groove that won’t quit—equal parts Phish and a soaring  momentum all their own—the quartet plays with a focused abandon that is  quite enchanting.” 

- Randy Ray, Jambands.com
