In the tradition of psychedelic dance music, the Golden Gate Wingmen keep the Grateful spirit alive! Comprised of musicians that have performed extensively with the original members of the Grateful Dead, the Wingmen delight audiences with original songs, as well as a wide variety of covers and Grateful tunes. United by their love to jam and make people dance, Golden Gate Wingmen formed in 2014 to perform a show at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, California. As Furthur finished a wonderful run of over 300 shows, Kadlecik, Chimenti and Lane wished to carry on their musical brotherhood, and with his creative and unique approach to playing bass, Mathis completed this amazing quartet. Touring nationwide over the last several years, the Wingmen have developed a style all their own. From Bob Dylan to Van Morrison, to Bob Marley to Led Zeppelin, the Wingmen create a fusion of rock, funk and jazz like no one else!
