After the surprise announcement of the end of Furthur, fans of improvisational jam music have been left to wonder what is next. Within days, the answer was evident, Golden Gate Wingmen.

The Golden Gate Wingmen is a band formed in concept through casual conversation by the musicians recognizing that everyone was available the night that Kadlecik had booked for the first night of his electro-coustic solo tour. In actuality, it was formed on stage during sound check, as this particular group of guys had never played together before in this lineup.

The band contains members of the highest quality, and from the first show, were performing original material (mostly songs from John Kadlecik's first album released under his own name.) The band premiered to a sold out audience on November 5 2014 at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael CA. Fans can expect both boundary thrashing original music, and material from the song book that they love, forged in an altogether new cauldron, the results of which will be unique to each night's performance.

Jeff Chimenti of The Dead & Furthur
Jeff Chimenti (born October 21, 1968) is an American keyboardist, best known for his ongoing work with RatDog. He is also a member of the post-Grateful Dead bands The Dead and Furthur.[1][2]

A native of the San Francisco Bay area, Chimenti began playing piano when he was four and he studied formally from the age of seven to around the time he finished high school. Once he graduated from high school, he began playing in bands around the Bay area. He played in local jazz bands as well as Les Claypool's Frog Brigade; he's also played back-up for pop acts such as En Vogue.

He was playing in Dave Ellis's jazz quartet when Ellis was hired to play saxophone in Ratdog. Ellis informed him that Ratdog was also looking for a new keyboardist. Chimenti was hired and played his first show 28 May 1997.

Recently Chimenti has been on tour with Ratdog and is scheduled to perform with Phil Lesh and Friends.
