TEANECK, N.J. — Jerry Garcia will be interpreted Saturday by the band Deadgrass at Mexicali Live in Teaneck.
Matt Turk sings and plays mandolin with fiddler Clarence Ferrari, Grammy-winning guitarist C Lanzbom, Chris Conte on upright bass and Russell Gottlieb on banjo. Also, come hear Scarlet B, Eyes of the World, Land of the Navajo and much, much more.
Based out of Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y., Turk is a veteran performer who has engaged audiences around the world. He has shared the stage with Pete Seeger and opened for Judy Collins, The Doobie Brothers, Fiona Apple, the Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart and more. He has performed throughout the United States, Europe, Israel and the Caribbean, appearing at numerous festivals, including Clearwater, Gathering of the Vibes, Atlanta's Music Midtown, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and several area venues, including The Beacon Theatre and Brooklyn Bowl.
Lanzbom has spent years as a studio and touring guitarist. Well traveled in the Middle East, Lanzbom absorbed Israel-Arabic musical rhythms of the region, fusion these ancient tones to the rock and roll he grew up with along the Jersey shore. His performing, writing, engineering and producing credits include his own internationally acclaimed band Soulfarm, American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox, Shlomo Carlbach, and Pete Seeger with Bruce Springsteen. He also has numerous television and film song credits.
When not touring, Lanzbom owns and operates Sherwood Ridge Studio, a state-of-the-art recording facility just north of New York City. He brings his unique sound around the world and his affection and passion for Jerry Garcia's music has been a major influence.
