In May of 2015 an impressive array of musicians including some of his Grateful Dead band mates came together at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland to honor the late Jerry Garcia. Dear Jerry: Celebrating The Music Of Jerry Garcia featured the likes of Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, moe., the Disco Biscuits, Widespread Panic and more. AXS TV will air a concert film documenting the event.
The television premiere of Dear Jerry is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET this Saturday night, August 19. Dear Jerry ends a day of programming honoring the 50th anniversary of the Summer Of Love.
