Andy Falco & Travis Book Play Jerry Garcia At WHBPAC

A special evening of music awaits at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on October 21 when Andy Falco and Travis Book of the Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters play the music of Jerry Garcia.

Inspired by their love of the music of Jerry Garcia, the duo branches off on their own for occasional tours to celebrate Garcia’s timeless songs. “This solo project originated backstage at ‘Dusters shows where Travis and I would typically warm up with some fun Jerry songs,” Falco explained. “At some point we just thought it would be fun to do it in public.” Falco, born and bred in New York City and Long Island, joined the hit bluegrass and Americana band The Infamous Stringdusters in 2007, whereas Book, by way of Colorado, joined in 2005.

Drawing from Garcia’s solo material, his Grateful Dead catalogue as well as the traditional songs he loved to play, fans can expect stripped down, acoustic interpretations of Garcia’s legendary catalogue. “Performing this music as a duo allows us to explore the songs and jam in a way that’s unique to playing as a duo,” said Book. “We typically hear these songs in larger ensembles, but the songs done with just bass and guitar somehow make the music very interactive with the audience. It’s really a testament to the quality of the songwriting, and we like to put a spotlight on that aspect of Jerry,” the duo continued. Says Heather Draskin, WHBPAC Marketing Director, “For true fans of the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia, this is a must-see show.”
