Special Music on Tuesday August 1st! Happy Birthday Jerry!

On August 1st, our musical and spiritual guru Jerry Garcia, would have turned 75.  Every year we like to pay homage to Jerry by doing a special birthday tribute show.  This year we have a very exciting evening planned with Sless & Friends featuring Barry Sless, John Molo, Pete Sears and Katie Skene.  Possibly some surprise guests as well?  DJ Acidpalace (Rob Bleetstein from SiriusXM’s Grateful Dead Channel) will be spinning a deep tribute to Jerry for this 75th Birthday Celebration pre show and during set break.  This show is a $5.00 cover, and all proceeds go to the band.»
