May 21st, at the Ridgefield Playhouse, Keystone Revisited plays the songs that Merl and Jerry made famous including “After Midnight”, “The Night They Drove Ol Dixie Down”, “Expressway to Your Heart”, “The Harder They Come” along with many more of the songs that made them famous. Keystone Revisited has even written and recorded a few new songs that are with the same heart such as “These Troubled Times” and “It’s A Love Thing”. The band was bought together because of the huge demand from fans to hear more music from the originators of the so-called “Jam Band”. When Merl Saunders and Jerry Garcia got together it was pure magic. They were in these groups; Merl Saunders and Jerry Garcia, Reconstruction and Legion Of Mary, which were at the forefront of the jam band era.
What better way to pay homage to these legendary players than by having Bill Vitt who played with Merl and Jerry, Tony Saunders, the son of Merl, who started playing with them when he was 18 and continued to play with them both doing other projects, Michael Hinton who played with Merl in High Noon with Mickey Hart and Merl’s Rainforest Band. These three have played with so many of the people we love that their chemistry on stage is electric.
