Every 2nd and 4th Sunday, Tucson’s-own, Legion of Mario pays tribute to the music of Jerry Garcia at the Hut on Fourth Avenue at 3pm.
Playing the music of Jerry Garcia…Legion of Mario is a live and improvisational band that plays the music of the Jerry Garcia Band and the Legion of Mary in their own soulful style. They play all of Jerry’s originals as well as the covers that he played from Dylan, The Band, Motown and more.
Legion of Mario has played Grateful Fest and Jerry’s Birthday Bash in Flagstaff and will return to the Skull and Roses Festival in Ventura Beach, California this Spring. Legion will open the Skull and Roses festival and will air live on the satellite radio show, Tales from the Golden Road with Big Steve Parish.
Mario Saravia channels the guitar and vocals of Jerry. Doc Holladay brings his Hammond B-3 to life in a way that would make Melvin proud. Mark Ryan (bass guitar) and Andy Briefer (Drums) hold down the groove and keep the dance floor jumping.
