If you were a jam fan in the nineties it’s no doubt you’ve heard of God Street Wine, a jam rock group from New York City that was on HORDE tour four times, and played with the likes of Dave Matthews Band, Black Crowes, Allman Brothers, and Hootie and the Blowfish. Now in 2018 – they are celebrating their 30th anniversary this fall and marking the occasion by visiting many cities they hadn’t played in nearly 20 years, including Washington, DC. Next Wednesday August 1 is your chance to catch these jam legends on stage at City Winery, an intimate seated venue.
The band started in 1988 with members Lo Faber (lead vocals, guitar), Aaron Maxwell (lead vocals, guitar), Tom Osander (drums and percussion), Dan Pifer (bass), and Jon Bevo (keyboards). In 1998 the band had some member changes and in 1999 officially disbanded, playing 3 farewell shows at New York City’s The Wetlands Preserve that included an appearance from John Popper. Since then they played sporadic reunion shows, and now this special 5 city tour. You won’t want to miss them as they come through town, since we don’t know when the next time will be to see them play their legendary music. Grab your tickets now.
City Winery is a new restaurant, winery, and live music venue in the beautiful Ivy City neighborhood of DC, which was once an industrial area that left behind many warehouses that have now been renovated into apartment buildings, stores, bars, and restaurants. More shows coming up at City Winery include Matisyahu August 7, Brother Joscephus & The Love Revolution August 15, Honey Island Swamp Band August 16, Mountain Heart August 24, and more.
