8pm FREE (JAMBAND/TRIBUTE)
Hippies please use side door... UJB has been faithfully bringing the music and spirit of the Grateful Dead to Skipper's every Thursday at Skipper's since 1998.
Uncle John's Band was formed in 1989 in Clearwater Florida from a combination of talented musicians who love to play the music of the Grateful Dead. The purpose of Uncle John's Band is to recreate the atmosphere and musical adventure of a live Dead show. Over the past many years, Uncle John's Band has performed hundreds of shows full of musical energy and pleasure for all those who have attended. Uncle Johns' Band has performed a highly successful series of concerts at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg, festivals at Vinoy Park, sunsets at Clearwater Pier and numerous clubs. Since 1998 UJB has performed Thursday nights at Skipper's Smokehouse in Tampa. Uncle John's Band performs 6-10 shows per month within the Bay area. Over the last twelve plus years UJB has developed a loyal fan base in the thousands who enjoy the music, atmosphere, and experience of the Grateful Dead.
