Terrapin Flyer @ Diamond Pub

Saturday, Jan. 26

Diamond Pub
630 Barret Ave.
$15; 9 p.m.

Terrapin Flyer returns with guests Melvin Seals (The Jerry Garcia Band) and Mark Karan (Ratdog). Guitarist Doug Hagland says the repertoire will differ from their August concert, which featured keyboardist Tom Constanten from the ’68-70 Grateful Dead lineup and music from that era. “We play a lot in (the guests’) comfort zones … With Melvin, you have the influence of R&B and soul. With Mark, you have the whole Dead catalog to work with, and also, he’s really blues and R&B-influenced, so there’s some crossover between them, but also some significant differences. It’s really a combination of Grateful Dead and JGB. It’s a big thrill to play with Melvin on those JGB tunes he played on.” Former Allman Brothers Band pianist Johnny Neel and Louisville saxophonist Myron Koch will also be sitting in. —Martin Z.
