Tea Leaf Green

Putting a modern gloss on the work of such legendary acts as the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band with their funky, psychedelic sound and dedication to their classic-rock roots, Tea Leaf Green have established themselves as one of today's preeminent jam bands. What sets the San Francisco quartet apart is the renowned songwriting and distinctive keyboards of Trevor Garrod, whose lyrical ruminations are delivered in a Jerry Garcia-like tenor. With their considerable chops and regular appearances as festival headliners, there's no doubting TLG's jamming pedigree—a fact that was reinforced when none other than Justin Kreutzman, son of the Dead's drummer, Bill, released a documentary about the band in 2006 called Rock 'n' Roll Band. Back on the road after a rare two-month hiatus from their usually relentless touring, expect TLG to explore such hits as the Jammy Award-winning "Taught to Be Proud" along the outer limits of some mind-bending jams.
