Annual Tribute to Jerry Garcia: "Remembering Jerry"

Date: 
Wednesday, August 3, 2011 - 7:00pm

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter Jerry Garcia was best known as a founding member of the Grateful Dead, the rock band for which he served as de facto leader for 30 years, 1965-1995. Concurrently for much of that time, he also led his own Jerry Garcia Band, and he performed and recorded in a variety of configurations and a variety of styles, particularly styles of folk and country music, sometimes switching to banjo or pedal steel guitar for the purpose. Garcia also formed a jazz-oriented group called Reconstruction  that included Merle Saunders, was part of bluegrass band Old & In The Way, and performed old-timey acoustic music with David Grisman.

Jerome John Garcia, named after the show tune composer Jerome Kern, was born August 1, 1942, in San Francisco, CA, and died on August 9, 1995.
