The ever-popular and always inventive Stu Allen & Mars Hotel may include some familiar songs (especially of the Dead variety) as well as Allen’s own compositions, which singer and guitarist Allen and crew use as launching pads for flights of improvisation. Allen is one of the leading figures in the jam band and Dead-inspired community, featured in such groups as Front Street, Melvin Seals & JGB, and Workingman’s Ed. He has performed at the annual Jerry Garcia Day concerts in San Francisco’s McLaren Park and even led an entire day at the Dead on the Creek festival featuring his various bands. He has also played with Bob Weir, Steve Kimock, Warren Haynes, and numerous other prominent musicians.

Allen, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, joined Melvin Seals & JGB in June 2004 and appears on the “Keepers of the Flame” album. With his uncanny improvising skill and his commitment to making every performance unique, Allen has made extensive contributions to the jam music scene. In the early 1990s, he co-founded the Minnesota-based acoustic-electric jam band Blue Man Jive, which issued one CD, “Playing God.” He was also a founder of the Jones Gang, Minneapolis’ premier Grateful Dead tribute band. Now a resident of San Francisco, Allen continues to explore, experiment, create, and recreate within a variety of musical styles, many of them Dead-linked.

Pat Nevins began his musical career in Chicago. He has been performing live shows in the San Francisco area for ten years now, and is known for his heartfelt vocals, deep soul, and rhythm guitar work. Pat performs his own compositions, and is loved by Bay Area music fans for taking on both the acoustic and electric sides of Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and Gram Parsons, to name a few. He has appeared and worked with many top Bay Area musicians including Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead. In 2003, Pat released Shakey Zimmerman, a ten song tribute to Neil Young and Bob Dylan, which featured a fabulous backing band including pedal steel and guitar ace, Barry Sless. Currently he plays with Echo Trail, as well as alongside Stu Allen and Mark Karan in The Ghosts of Electricity.
