All-Star Jerry Garcia Birthday Band Announces Like A Road Leading Home Shows


Jerry Garcia’s family put together an all-star band they dubbed the Jerry Garcia Birthday Band to perform at Red Rocks on August 4, 2017 as part of a celebration of the late guitarist’s 75th birthday. The Jerry Garcia Birthday Band reunited in Vail for two shows this past August and now announced their San Francisco debut.

Longtime Jerry Garcia Band members Melvin Seals, Jacklyn LaBranch and Gloria Jones will team with Oteil Burbridge, Tom Hamilton and Duane Trucks for “Like A Road Leading Home: Celebrating Jerry Garcia” at The Warfield in San Francisco on January 11 and 12. In 1981, the Jerry Garcia Band made their debut at The Warfield and beginning in 1988 the group started performing runs regularly at the venue. Garcia is thought to have performed at least 100 times at The Warfield including the Grateful Dead’s 15-show acoustic/electric residency in 1980.

A pre-sale for the Jerry Garcia Birthday Band’s shows at The Warfield begins on Wednesday, November 7 at 10 a.m. PT here. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, November 9 at 10 a.m. PT. Watch the Jerry Garcia Birthday Band team with special guest Kamasi Washington for “Gomorrah” at Red Rocks in 2017:
