The Avett Brothers & Warren Haynes Recreate Jerry Garcia Band Show In 2016


On October 15, 2016, The Avett Brothers paired up with Warren Haynes for a concert dubbed “This Is 30!” as part of the Dear Jerry: Let’s Play 2 celebration. The Avetts and Haynes used the opportunity at EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia to recreate a Jerry Garcia Band show from 1986. A playlist featuring fan-shot video of each song from the concert can be viewed below.

Warren Haynes and the Americana act used the same setlist the Jerry Garcia Band utilized at The Stone in San Francisco, California on October 18, 1986. The original show was held just over two weeks after Garcia returned to the stage following his recovery from a diabetic coma.


Here’s more from a JamBase report on The Avett Brothers/Warren Haynes collaboration:

Warren and The Avett Brothers worked through the 12 songs the JGB played on October 18, 1986 as their main set on October 15th in Fairfax. Haynes and the band mixed Jerry originals such as “Run For The Roses” and “Deal” with a bevy of covers from the likes of Van Morrison (“And It Stoned Me”), Bob Dylan (“Forever Young,” “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” and “Tangled Up In Blue”), Jimmy Cliff (“The Harder They Come”) and The Beatles (“Dear Prudence”).

The Gov’t Mule frontman and The Avett Brothers returned for a four-song encore of JGB live repertoire staples. Up first was “Mission In The Rain,” which was followed by “Reuben & Cerise,” “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)” and the evening’s fourth’s Bob Dylan cover, “I Shall Be Released.”
