Uncle Johns Band @ Skippers Smokehouse

Skippers Smokehouse, Tampa, FL

For over 1000 Thursdays, Uncle John's Band has presided over the weekly congregation that is Skipper's Smokehouse Grateful Dead Night. Over the past two decades UJB has shared this stage with notable guests including Grateful Dead alums & related artists John Kadlecik, Tom Constanten, Vince Welnick, Merle Sanders, Melvin Seals, David Gans, and New Riders of the Purple Sage. Other noted guest sit-ins include Jeff Mosier and Jake Shimabukuro. Countless other touring bands have made a Thursday night detour to play a “sandwich set” with UJB. Skippers Smokehouse is considered by many to be the center of the Tampa Bay music scene, and Thursday nights with Uncle John's Band its “church.”
