Rock N’ Roll Resort Announces “The Grateful Escape” Lineup With Melvin Seals, Kung Fu, & More

first_imgToday, Rock N’ Roll Resort has officially announced the upcoming eighth edition of their unique musical weekend getaway. Dubbed “The Grateful Escape”, the event is set to take place from Friday, March 23rd to Sunday, March 25th at  Hudson Valley Resort & Spa in Kerhonkson, NY. Nestled 90 miles north of New York City in the Catskill Mountains, attendees will enjoy the venue’s newly-renovated facilities. As always, Rock N’ Roll Resort gives fans the chance to enjoy a festival atmosphere without the hassle of camping and the extra planning that goes along with it.This year’s artist lineup will be highlighted by two sets from Melvin Seals & JGB, two sets from the Golden Gate Wingmen, two sets from funk-rock fusion outfit Kung Fu, and a rare performance from psychedelic rock quartet The Breakfast.The Grateful Escape’s headlining acts draw from both the band members and the music of Jerry Garcia’s two most prominent projects: The Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin Seals, Jerry’s longtime collaborator, is most revered for the powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, during his time playing the keys for Garcia Band. His unique funky-blues rock-gospel fusion earned him the nickname “Master of the Universe” from Jerry. The Golden Gate Wingmen, comprised of four longtime satellites in the Grateful Dead Universe (guitarist/vocalist John Kadlecik, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, bassist Reed Mathis, and drummer Jay Lane) will honor the Dead portion of Garcia’s legacy with their energetic interpretation of the band’s classic songbook.Many additional acts are still to be announced that feature artists from a variety of styles and genres. Keep your eyes peeled for further announcements. Room info and packages, additional artist announcements, resort activities, directions and all event info can be found on the event website.
