In what has become an annual tradition, the boys and girls of Phuncle Sam bring a special evening of music featuring 3 sets of Grateful music! Come in costume, in character, out of character… all forms welcome!Phuncle Sam is Asheville’s own Dead~Centric “jam band”. Since their formation in 2004, Phuncle Sam has been firmly rooted in musical exploration. The band serves up inventive interpretations of Jerry Garcia, Grateful Dead and many others. They have built up a faithful following by using an approach that respects the improvisational traditions of The Dead, while exploring what can happen when individual band members bring their unique influences and interpretations into the mix.
