Florida Folk Night
Uncle John's Band was formed in 1989 in Clearwater Florida by a group of talented musicians who love to play the music of the Grateful Dead.
UJB has played thousands of hours of Grateful Dead music from Chicago to Key West, but mostly centered around their home base of Tampa Bay Florida. Their weekly shows at Tampa's legendary Skippers Smokehouse have been a Thursday night "church" for the deadicated since 1995.
Over the years, UJB has enjoyed regular appearances on the Florida music festival circuit (Magnolia Fest, Magnolia Ball, Orange Blossom Jamboree, Home Team Rally to name a few) but thrives on stretching out on 2 or 3 extended sets during a typical evening show.
To quote a tune: "Anyone who sweats like that must be alright." We hope to see you at a show soon
Unlimited Devotion (aka UD) was conceived in Miami in April 2012 as a vehicle for exploring the Grateful Dead’s songbook. The band quickly developed a dedicated following and has steadily evolved its repertoire, personnel, and musical personality to reflect its current members’ jazz and funk influences.
Today, UD is based dually in Tampa/St. Petersburg and Miami. Its reputation for delivering energized, adventuresome performances has made the quintet one of the top drawing acts in Florida; a typical show routinely attracts 200 to 400 music fans.
In February 2018, Unlimited Devotion produced and performed Dead & Co.’s pre-concert and after party on Orlando’s famed Church Street. City officials estimated 5000 and 7000 attendees at the respective events, making it the biggest block party in Orlando’s history and earning UD national attention. UD was also named one of the top 4 most influential jam bands in Florida by Miami New Times Magazine in 2018 (along with Roosevelt Collier, The Heavy Pets and Snarky Puppy).
