Melvin Seals & JGB have announced a lineup change for their upcoming spring tour, recalibrating their vocal department by adding Lady Chi and Sunshine Becker in place of Cheryl Rucker and Shirley Starks.

“As we push forward and grow as a band, we want to sincerely thank Cheryl Rucker and Shirley Starks for their many years of singing and touring with Melvin Seals and JGB,” the band said in an official statement. “We, as the Keepers of the Flame, strive to be the greatest band we can be. To best serve Jerry Garcia’s music, and with the fans in our best interest, we’d like to introduce the two ladies that will be taking the reins: Lady Chi and Sunshine Becker. We can’t wait to show you how this lineup sounds on our upcoming tour!”

The band will make stops up and down the eastern seaboard and in the midwest this March. Tickets for Melvin Seals & JGB’s spring tour are available here
