44 years ago today, The Grateful Dead played arguably their finest show ever. Taking place in Veneta, Oregon and scheduled as a benefit for the Kesey family creamery, that very hot day led to some of the deepest, most exploratory, often beautiful and occasionally frightening music every to vibrate off of electric instruments. Tonight, GBB honors the music and the fun of the occasion by replaying the set list for you. Come re-live it or experience it for the first time.

Garcia Birthday Band (GBB), is a group of veteran musicians interpreting and celebrating the vast repertoire of the late Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead. But this isn’t a “tribute band!” Drawing upon years of individual and shared experience, these players are able to craft and transform these tunes into something fresh and original. Solid chops, tight arrangements and fine harmonies all contribute to the band’s musical travels and explorations of one of the greatest and most diverse songbooks of all time. Always sure to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rocking, the band’s quickly growing fan base finds the community spirit and kind vibes contagious.

    I’m 5 months new to the area, a 63 years young Deadhead and have loved hearing the Garcia Birthday Band at three different venues already. Last time was great!!! at the Edgefield in Troutdale

    We’ve been Dead / Jerry / Bob fans for decades, and it’s my husband’s birthday on the 29th. Would be great to win tickets to the show
