Jennifer Hartswick Guests With Melvin Seals & JGB And Star Kitchen In Port Chester: Full Show Pro-Shot Video


On Saturday night, The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York hosted Melvin Seals & JGB and Star Kitchen. Both bands were joined by special guest Jennifer Hartswick on trumpet and vocals for portions of their performances.

Star Kitchen featuring Marc Brownstein of The Disco Biscuits on bass, drummer Marlon Lewis, keyboardist Rob Marscher and guitarist Danny Mayer opened the evening with Hartswick aboard for The J.B.’s “Hot Pants Road” and J.J. Cale’s “After Midnight.” The quartet then went at it alone for The Impressions’ “People Make The World Go Round” and “Chank” by John Scofield. Mayer was featured in a medley of Led Zeppelin’s “Bring It On Home,” “The Ocean” and “Trampled Underfoot” that included portions of “Jungle Boogie.” Jennifer returned to help Star Kitchen close out their lone set with Aretha Franklin’s “Rock Steady,” Grant Green’s “Jan Jan” and Billy Preston’s “Will It Go Round In Circles.”

Melvin Seals & JGB played two sets filled with classics from the Jerry Garcia Band and Grateful Dead repertoires. The group kicked off the first frame with “(I’m A) Roadrunner” and Garcia gems “Cats Under The Stars” and “Run For The Roses.” Later in the set, Hartswick emerged to lead the band through “Piece Of My Heart” and “Sitting In Limbo.” Jennifer added trumpet to an extended “Bird Song” and front the group on Bob Dylan’s “Gotta Serve Somebody.”

Saturday’s second Melvin Seals & JGB set began with a run of “Tore Up Over You,” “Gomorrah” and “The Magnificent Sanctuary Band.” Brownstein added to the “Tore Up Over You.” Then, Sunshine Becker belted out “Stella Blue.” A funky “My Sisters & Brothers” and euphoric “Dancing In The Street” brought the night to a close.
