In the tradition of psychedelic dance music, the Golden Gate Wingmen keep the Grateful spirit alive! Comprised of musicians that have performed extensively with the original members of the Grateful Dead, the Wingmen delight audiences with original songs, as well as a wide variety of covers and Grateful tunes. United by their love to jam and make people dance, Golden Gate Wingmen formed in 2014 to perform a show at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, California. As Furthur finished a wonderful run of over 300 shows, Kadlecik, Chimenti and Lane wished to carry on their musical brotherhood, and with his creative and unique approach to playing bass, Mathis completed this amazing quartet. Touring nationwide over the last several years, the Wingmen have developed a style all their own. From Bob Dylan to Van Morrison, to Bob Marley to Led Zeppelin, the Wingmen create a fusion of rock, funk and jazz like no one else!

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.
