Guitarist and singer-songwriter Dewey Paul Moffitt is an admired talent in the Rocky Mountain live music scene and has headed up tribute bands to Jerry Garcia, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan. So why not put them together in one super fun night of entertainment and dancing? That was the beginning of Garcia Van Dylan which has won many fans in the Rocky Mountain region. Moffitt's americana group Dewey Paul Band performs as Garcia Van Dylan in this tribute to these three legends. Van covered Bob, Bob covered Jerry, and Jerry covered both Van and Bob. They are the inspiration behind this tribute show and on such occasions the group performs cover sets composed only by these three legends.
Garcia Van Dylan songlist:
Here's the current but yet ever expanding list of songs GVD performs. (Noteworthy: Let's not forget to mention Jerry's songwriting partner Robert Hunter; so for all intents and purposes the project could just as well be called "Hunter Van Dylan" or "Garcia/Hunter Van Dylan". You get the idea.) For Garcia's portion, we mix in his solo material with his Grateful Dead material, but we lean towards his versions of the covers he performed of Dylan and Morrison, with random variables thrown in just to keep things interesting.
