About the Englishtown Project
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.

The lineup brings together Michael Falzarano, Rob Wolfson, Tom
Circosta, Klyph Black, Dave Diamond, Clare Maloney, and special
guest on keyboards, Mookie Siegel from Phil Lesh & Friends.

FEATURING

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.

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.

Mookie Siegel (Keyboards / Vocals) Mookie has distinguished
himself over the last many years as one of the principle keyboardists
on the jam band scene. He has played with Phil Lesh and Friends
and is a current member of the David Nelson Band.

Klyph Black (Bass / Vocals) In Klyph, along with Tom and
Dave (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.

Dave Diamond (Drums) Most fans of the Grateful Dead know
what a great drummer Dave is, but more and more are coming to
realize that Davei s a multi-talented musician to be reckoned
with. In addition to his long tenure with Zen Tricksters, Dave
drums for the excellent alt-rock band Assembly of Dust and his
own eclectic Dave Diamond Band where he is the lead singer,guitarist
and songwriter.

Clare Maloney
(Vocals) New York City-based vocalist, Clare
has been hailed for her “golden voice of immense range and depth,”
and has delighted audiences around the world with her thoughtful
artistry, polished singing and wholehearted performances. Raised
on Rock & Roll and trained in Classical Music and Opera, Clare’s
musical knowledge and her skillful ability to move between musical
genres have established her as a go-to musician. Her interpretations
of the Grateful Dead are earning her a steady following on the
Jam Band scene, and she sings regularly with Rainbow Full of Sound,
and the Englishtown Project.
