Greg Koerner, Tommy Kaelin, Jon Koerner and Chewy will pay tribute to collaborator and friend Vince Welnick at their weekly Wednesday gig at 132 Lounge in Brooklyn tonight.
Tomorrow marks what would’ve been Welnick’s 65th birthday. The Grateful Dead keyboardist committed suicide in 2006 after battling depression.
The New York City-based group has been home to several Dead alumni over the years including Welnick and Tom Constanten. The Band’s Garth Hudson also played with the group along with NRPS’ Buddy Cage and RatDog’s Kenny Brooks.
