Jerry Garcia Foundation Sets Lineup for Second Annual Jerry Garcia Birthday Celebration

The Jerry Garcia Foundation and Musicians on a Mission will present the second annual Jerry Garcia Birthday Celebration later this month at Lakewood, NJ’s Strand Theater, featuring a lineup of musicians celebrating the music of the late Grateful Dead guitarist.

Set to play the celebration are Waynard Scheller and Rainbow Full of Sound, 13-year-old Tennessee prodigy Emi Sunshine, Greg Winser, Sandy Mack and a collaboration between former Hot Tuna percussionist Bob Steeler and bassist Tony Saunders, son of longtime Garcia collaborator Merl Saunders.

The event, which takes place on August 26, will also include a collective coloring project of a giant coloring-book page of Garcia’s Seascape painting and a raffle of three Garcia paintings, Bluegrass Musician, Wetlands II and Wisteria.

More information is available here, and tickets can be found at the venue’s website.
