The Grateful Dead’s Vince Wellnick with Gent Treadly at The Green Parrot
Former Grateful Dead keyboardist Vince Wellnick returns to The Green Parrot with The Gent Treadly Band on Thursday and Friday, April 13th and 14th beginning at 10 P.M. with a special 5 P.M. “sound check” on Friday.
Welnick is best known as the keyboardist for The Grateful Dead from 1990 until Jerry Garcia’s death in 1995. After Dead keyboardist Brent Mydland died of a drug overdose in 1990 Welnick auditioned for the spot and got it, taking over what may have seemed the Grateful Dead’s most fatal position. (founding member Ron “Pigpen” McKernan and Keith Godchaux both preceded Mydland in both the gig and death),
Since Garcia’s death Welnick has been involved in solo efforts including the band Missing man Formation and a brief stint with Bob Weir’s ratdog.
Don’t miss these three chances to see Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Vince Wellnik at The Green Parrot Bar.
The Green Parrot Bar is your Southernmost Center for Culture at the corner of Whitehead and Southard Streets.
