It is important to note however that the version of the Lovin' Spoonful currently touring is the version that made their last album, without John Sebastian.

The band currently consists of Jerry Yester, Steve Boone and Joe Butler. While this version of the band made a couple of decent tracks (check out the bonus tracks on the last album the band did with Sebastian, Everybody Playing, which on the CD version includes a few post-Sebastian tracks) they don't sound like the Lovin' Spoonful and you should be aware of that if you go and see them. Yester in particular is talented (he produced records for Tim Buckley among others), but Sebastian was the group for all intents and purposes.

John Sebastian currently plays occasional gigs doing jug band, ragtime, bluegrass and simillar types of music.
