The Fillmore Zone

With over a hundred years of collective music experience, the Fillmore Zone presents a unique approach to the classic music of the Psychedelic Era. “We’re a jazz trio that plays rock music,” says bassist Jesse James. “I don’t know where else you can find a three-piece Grateful Dead cover band,” adds guitarist Paul Smith.

After more than ten years of playing as a duo, Paul and Jesse were joined in 2012 by drummer Gary Ross to complete the trio and the band has jelled into a unit that explores the depths of their favorite bands including, but not limited to, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Cream, The Byrds, The Who, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, The Moody Blues, Crosby Stills & Nash, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers, and Jimi Hendrix.
