JERRY GARCIA – 80TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!

Monday, August 1st at 7:30 PM

Members $12 | Public $17

On what would have been Jerry’s 80th birthday, Rock Legends Live! pays tribute to Garcia, with a 30-year assortment of rare, live performances from around the world. Including some of the last filmed concerts. It will include Grateful Dead classics, covers, blues (a favorite of Jerry's), country, psychedelic, reggae, and even some Latin jazz influenced tunes.

After almost 30 years of Jerry Garcia's passing, fans of many generations still love and deeply miss the iconic singer / songwriter / guitarist of the beloved group The Grateful Dead. Along with his God-like deity image and improvised live performances, Jerry developed a legendary status among legions of fans and the caravan of followers known as Dead Heads. And even decades after Garcia's death, the continuation of Dead & Co., consisting of members from the Grateful Dead, still carry on the tradition of Jerry's music and memory.

Including archival performances of the Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter written masterpieces: “China Cat Sunflower,” “Uncle John's Band,” “Friend Of The Devil,” “Truckin,” “Casey Jones,” “Ripple,” “Not Fade Away,” “Sugeree,” and more!
