This Saturday night, minor league hockey team the Kalamazoo Wings take on the Indy Fuel at the Wings Event Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Look for the team to sport Grateful Dead-inspired jerseys in honor of the band as part of Grateful Dead Night.
Grateful Dead Night will not only feature the home team wearing the specialty jerseys, but is also expected to include the band’s music blasting over the arena’s p.a. The team announced the theme night back in September. Early this morning, the Wings shared photos of the actual jerseys on it social media feeds. An auction will be held after the game in which a select number of jerseys will be sold. Gather at Section 8 once the match concludes if interested.
Tickets for the game are on sale now here. Have a look at the full-size photo from the K-Zoo Wings:
