The first week of August is always a special time for fans of Jerry Garcia. The famed Grateful Dead guitarist was born on August 1st, 1942 and passed away on August 9th, 1995 – creating a “Jerry Week” celebration for all who want to honor Garcia’s legacy.Of course, there’s no better way to honor said legacy than with the music. Fortunately, the Sweetwater Music Hall (of which Bob Weir is a co-owner) has put together a “Jerry Day” tribute concert featuring a number of musicians from the extended Grateful Dead family. The show will feature vocalist Sunshine Garcia Becker, bassist Robin Sylvester, Tift Merritt, keyboardist Danny Eisenberg, guitarist Matt Hartle and drummer Ezra Lipp. The announcement also promises additional special guests to be added later.The show is coming up on August 9th at the Mill Valley, CA venue, and tickets can be found here.
