Such a Grateful place for die-hard Garcia fans to be Gathering! We're so happy and grateful to announce that we will be having our 5th outdoor music and camping get together this summer! The "Grateful Garicia Gathering" will be returning back to the beautiful "NCN-North Campground" on July 29th through August 1st 2005, in beautiful Black River Falls Wisconsin.
This mellow gathering will be the same weekend of Jerry Garcia's Birthday, plus it marks the 10th Anniversary of Jerry's untimely passing. This is going to be a very deeply humble, and special time for camping and gathering with friends of old and new! The 3G's will be a mix of wonderful Jams by some of the best JamBands in the Midwest to rock your soul.
The Grateful Garcia Gathering just wouldn't be complete without a musical cohort and personal friend of Jerry's to be part of the festivities. Melvin Seals, the longtime vocalist and organist of the "Jerry Garcia Band" and JGB, will headline for *TWO JAM'N NIGHTS* on July 29th & 30th. Melvin Seals remained with the "Jerry Garcia Band" longer than any other keyboardist. He was with the band from 1977 until the untimely passing of Jerry in 1995.
Bringing the Festival to a new level this year will be our Host Frank "Jerry" Chavez. So don't miss the bus this summer!
