“Jerry Dance Party is a chance for music lovers to experience the mind-bending marriage of cutting-edge audio-visual technology with the timeless music of the Grateful Dead.” - concert promoter and Relix publisher Peter Shapiro.

From its inception, The Jerry Dance Party has brought together the best of Jerry Garcia live catalog, from his extensive and wide ranging career with the Grateful Dead to his work with Old & In The Way, Jerry Garcia Band, Merl Saunders, John Kahn, New Riders of the Purple Sage and many more.

On the evenings of January 17 and 18, the high flying indie-groove band Goose joined musical supergroup Dead and Company at their third annual concert series, “Playing in the Sand.” The all-inclusive event was hosted by the Moon Palace Resort in Riviera Cancun Mexico.

Goose was a last-minute addition, contributing three sets to a sold-out Playing in the Sand. The groovy gaggle landed on the main stage for an unannounced welcome party for a notoriously passionate deadhead fan base, who flock across the world to see their beloved music legends perform in an intimate setting.

A new, cavernous San Francisco concert venue was put to use by Dead & Company on Dec. 30, and while it is the biggest indoor venue in Grateful Dead-hometown history, the party was no less enthusiastic. On New Year’s Eve, balloons would drop and a vintage plane would fly through the arena at midnight, but here on the 30th, the penultimate night of the year, Dead & Company delivered a big, powerful show worthy of review.

DEAD & COMPANY – Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, John Mayer, and Bob Weir, with Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti – will perform several concerts this fall on the East Coast. The shows - Thursday, October 31, & Friday, November 1, @ the world famous Madison Square Garden in New York and Friday, November 8, & Saturday, November 9, for the first time ever at Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia, follow Dead & Company’s 2019 Summer Tour, the band’s biggest yet.

Dead & Company wrapped up the final show of their 2019 Summer Tour this past Saturday at CU Boulder’s iconic Folsom Field. A venue frequented by the Grateful Dead throughout the 1970s, the Grateful Dead first touched down at the University of Colorado Boulder in the spring of 1969, and while the Dead wrapped up their final performance at Folsom in June of 1980, the spirit of the band has lived on throughout the city.
