About
Uncle John's Clan is a father and son duo with room to add other talented musicians for a larger sound at a moments request. It is comprised of Kurt Ginter and Shawn Ginter.

The name depicts an association with music from the Grateful Dead. We also play a lot music from the Classic late 60's era. Some groups we represent are The Band, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Canned Heat, The Beatles and many more. Check out our song list, videos, and audio demos.

Instrumentally, it consists of Kurt performing Lead Vocals, Keyboard, Saxophone, Flute and an intention to add plenty more instruments. Shawn backs up vocals and plays Guitar and can add more instruments down the line. For 2 individuals the sound is really full. Add the drummer from Kurt's Calypso Steel Drum Band "The White-Eyed Lizard Band" and the sound grows even more dynamically as Luke Rodney contributes vocals.

The group is not stuck in the sixties. We also feature Jack Johnson songs and are working on some Dispatch material as well. After a first ever performance in February. We were busy in March with 8 gigs (3 in Vermont 5 in Connecticut).

We are prepared to travel. We enjoy meeting new friends and being part of any good vibe party where our music will set the mood for the day.

We hired Uncle John's Clan to perform at our wedding reception. We did not want the traditional big wedding reception with all the gimmicks. Just an introduction and a first dance. Kurt and his band were very accommodating for that. Many of our guests enjoyed the music that they played.

Great communication prior to the event. On time, set up, and ready to play in no time. The music started and it was a feast for the ears. Couldn’t have asked for more. Very talented father and son duo. The saxophone blew me away. Our quests enjoyed the music and I received many compliments on finding them. They were perfect for our event. I highly recommend. Shout out to Gigmasters too.

Hey folks, just hired these guys to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday party. A very non-traditional audience for them, an odd matinee performance, family of all ages. I can't say enough good things about them. They sensed their audience and played their hearts out in a way that totally suited the event. Very talented and friendly guys, most happy with my experience. Many folks in attendance who aren't fans of the Dead commented to me about how "listenable" the music was. I would use them again in a heartbeat!

The Uncle John's Clan Band transformed my 60th birthday party into a super event. If the guests at the party were not up dancing, they were sitting at the tables tapping their feet while enjoying a fabulous concert! The band was very sensitive to the needs of the party starting the night with softer music and then jamming when the guests were ready to party. They accommodated all of the typical birthday party requests with a unique, refreshing style. I was tremendously pleased and impressed with the tight sound that Uncle John's Clan produced. I knew that I had chosen the right band immediately after hearing the opening bars of the first song.

Uncle John's Clan came through in a great way. Easy to deal with and showed up on time. Was friendly and enjoyable to chat with too. Music was great, not too loud nor too soft, they played like professionals. My 60+ guests enjoyed their show, they made my 50th B-day party a great success. You cannot go wrong with them..five stars across the board. Rob M. (Trumbull CT)(5-23-15)

Uncle John's Clan did a terrific job performing at the Connecticut River Museume's Thursdays on the Dock. The audience appreciated their lively, retro style. We look forward to having them back in the future.
