In Celebration of Jerry
As many of readers have pointed out, Jerry Garcia was born 65 years ago today. It is certainly fair to say that there would be no Jambands.com but for Jerome John Garcia. Numerous events are taking place around the country over the next few days to commemorate Jerrys life and music, including a special celebratory performance by The Zen Tricksters this evening at B.B. Kings in New York City. Meanwhile, here at the site, we just posted an interview with the Gathering of the Vibes Ken Hays, who began his festival twelve years ago, in reaction to New York Mayor Rudy Giulianis decision to squash a proposed Garcia memorial event in Central Park.
