Stu Allen

The inaugural Sacred Rose Fest is less than 2 weeks away. For the first time ever there will be a weekend full of music as diverse as the Grateful Dead in its current form. Phil Lesh playing with Nels Cline and Jeff Tweedy as well as Karl Denson, Stu Allen, Grahame Lesh, Jeff Chimenti, and Elliott Peck all in one headlining slot!?! Khruangbin, JRAD, Umphrey’s McGee, Disco Biscuits, Lotus, Elliott Peck’s Midnight North, Holly Bowling, and the Gone Gone Beyond are kicking it all off?!? The list is exciting and inviting.

July 19 UPDATE: Following a recent mild case of COVID-19 that kept Phil Lesh from performing with The String Cheese Incident at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado on July 17, it has now been confirmed that Phil Lesh & Friends will indeed deliver a headlining performance Friday, July 22 at the single-day Bluegrass and Beyond Festival at Lake Tahoe.

This weekend is going to rock! Join us Friday night for the warm-up party at Toot’s in Crockett for Garrett Deloian, frontman of Jerry’s Middle Finger, backed by the unstoppable rhythm section of JGB and Steve Sofranko of the China Cats on keys, a very fun mash-up for a very special Grateful Friday.

JGB has played this event many times over our 20 year history, and we're happy to announce they'll be back for their 15 year anniversary of playing Jerry Day!

Stu Allen has played this event every year since 2006 and we're ecstatic to bring him and Mars Hotel back to Jerry Garcia Amphitheater.

Look out for special updates on his Mars Hotel lineup soon!

More Artist, Special Guests, and August event info coming soon!
