The aptly named The Former Members is a band anchored by Roy Blumenfeld, drummer for the iconic 60s band The Blues Project. An East Coast version of the Grateful Dead, the band was known for its folk-rock psychedelia and epic improvisational jams back in the day when a 12-minute tune could still make the pop charts. Look for other ‘formers’ to join him for the Saturday, September 7 gig. 9 p.m. No cover. El Verano Inn. 938.4175.
