VENTURA LIVE | Music, Laughter, and Magic

Marley’s Ghost

Singer/Instrumentalists: Dan Wheetman, Jon Wilcox, Mike Phelan, Ed Littlefield Jr., Jerry Fletcher, And Bob Nichols

This acclaimed Band (with a capital B) boasts a huge following of fervent fans and listeners, including many fellow musicians. Their artistry transcends genres and generations, with an eclectic, rollicking set featuring Honky Tonk, Texas Swing, Folk, Country, Swampy Blues and Ballads. During their emotionally rich performances, audiences are captivated by their divine harmonies, and their exquisite songs linger in ears long after the last note has been sung. Dan Wheetman, who is chief songwriter in the group (also bassist, fiddler, guitarist and singer), has deep roots in Ventura County, having grown up in Ventura and Simi Valley. As a composer and creator, he went on to win L.A. Drama Critics Circle Awards and a Tony for Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues. Dan is known to Rubicon audiences for A John Denver Christmas (co-created with Randall Mylar), and various incarnations of Lonesome Traveler (with Jim O’Neil). The Band’s most recent released album, aptly named Travelin’ Shoes, was produced by virtuoso Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm), previously behind the boards for The Woodstock Sessions. 

If there’s a group who can push forward the ageless American blueprint of The Band, it might just be Marley’s Ghost.” Something Else 

 “This West Coast group deftly dashes across decades of American music to create a sound that’s steeped in tradition but never bogged down by traditionalism.” L.A. Weekly
