Jerry's Middle Finger

Jerry’s Middle Finger, a family of music-makers born from a deep collective love of all-things Jerry Garcia, has released their Summer/Fall 2023 tour dates.

Established in 2015, JMF has become a spiritual destination for those searching for “the sound,” yearning for that unspoken feeling when the sweet soaring song lifts you off your feet and sends you dancing through the stars.

Jerry’s Middle Finger, the nation’s preeminent Jerry Garcia Band tribute, kicks off a 3-night Pacific Northwest run tonight at Portland’s Mission Theatre with very special guest Zach Nugent.

The band then heads tomorrow to Tacoma, WA for their first ever gig at the Spanish Ballroom and closes the visit with a Sunday night gig at Seattle’s Tractor Tavern.

The second day of the 2022 Skull and Roses Festival dawned bright and sunny. By mid-afternoon, the festival grounds swelled with a much larger crowd than the first day, with many day-trippers arriving for the first time. The temperature soared into the mid-'80s, a near-record for the day, but luckily a stiff breeze from the ocean cooled things off in the late afternoon. Kitesurfers began to replace the small army of surfers who had dominated surfers' point earlier in the day.

It has been a long strange trip for the fourth annual Skull & Roses Festival. The biggest and best iteration of the festival finally took place this spring after a nearly three-year-long pandemic delay. The much-anticipated event drew the biggest crowd to date, attracting Deadheads from all over California, to the Ventura Fairgrounds, for four days of music inspired by The Grateful Dead.

It’s no longer a secret that Los Angeles-based Jerry's Middle Finger (JMF) delivers the best Jerry Garcia Band tribute experience in the world - performing and celebrating the music of JGB with unparalleled sound and energy.

The inaugural Days Between Festival, celebrating the legacy of late-Grateful Dead patriarch Jerry Garcia and the musical score he left embedded in our soul, was upbeat and a resounding success in northern Mendocino County, California on August 6 and 7, even amidst the rage of north-state wildfires and Covid-19 pandemic 2.0. Proof of vaccination or a negative, very-recent Covid test were required for entry.

What happens when the world’s two leading bands carrying the torch of the Jerry Garcia Band experience unite into one unstoppable force? This was the scene at the Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo, California as Garcia Band alum and current JGB frontman Melvin Seals joined California’s own Jerry’s Middle Finger for a sold-out Saturday evening Drive-in concert on November 14.

Jerry’s Middle Finger and special guest Sunshine Becker (Furthur) tore up their first live audience performance in 235 days to a sold-out drive-in crowd of nearly 1,000 hungry fans amongst 200+ socially-distanced cars at the Solano County Fairgrounds on Saturday night.
