On August 29, 1987 Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia led both the Jerry Garcia Band and the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band for performances at French’s Camp On The Eel River in Piercy, California. Garcia would bring the JGB back to the scenic venue on June 10, 1989 and on August 10, 1991. The Jerry Garcia Estate put out a call for fans to share memories and photos from the concerts in preparation for an official release.

“Calling all Eel River attendees over the years! Did you trek to French’s Camp on the Eel River to hear the Jerry Garcia Acoustic + Electric Band in ’87, ’89, and ’91?” reads the beginning of a note shared on Jerry Garcia social feeds today. “If so, we’d love for you to share your memories + photos from the shows with us at eelrivermemories@jerrygarcia.com. We are preparing an official release of the shows and would be grateful for your recollections.” No further details of the future release have been revealed.
