Each year since 1996, The Zen Tricksters have honored the memory of Jerry Garcia by celebrating his birthday, August 1st, in a big way--with two concerts in New York City!
This year, the day-time show, as always, will be at South Street Seaport's Pier 17, located at Fulton and South Streets in Manhattan, on Sunday afternoon, August 4th. This is an all-age, FREE, outdoor show, from 3 PM until 7 PM, set against the backdrop of ships, South Street shopping and eateries, and colorful food and gift kiosk vendors.
The night-time performance, which was always at the legendary Wetlands, now closed, will take place on Friday night, August 9th, at the beautiful B.B. King Blues Club on 237 W. 42nd Street in Manhattan. Two complete Tricksters shows on two days in NYC will have the Deadheads and all lovers of great improvisatory jam band music dancing to the Zen's special blend of great originals and covers.
