Terrapin is the ultimate Grateful Dead experience playing an authentic mix of Grateful Dead and other vintage jam-centric music. Since 2013, Terrapin has performed over 160 shows, live! Each show presents an original interpretation of songs that many have loved and listened to for decades.
Drawing upon a broad and varied experience, together the players in the group enlighten and entertain both the true “Deadhead” and the newly acquainted listener. While lead guitarist, vocalist and musical director of the band Geoff Schneider conjures the magic of Garcia, BB King and Santana, bluesy piano player Matthew “The Helm” Winthrop blends a little bit of Pig Pen, Keith Gotchaux and Brent Midland to bring depth and space to the mix. Paul Dunay takes no prisoners when he steps up to the mic to sing, infusing his rhythms with well-earned swagger. Bassist Ric LuBell has a style much like that of Phil Lesh and Jack Casady, and drummer JP Geoghegan provides the backbone of the band.
