Whether you’re a Boomer from the era of anti-war peace signs, tie-dye, love-ins and psychedelic art or a Millennial of the ‘jam band’ generation, the Grateful Dead are unquestionably America’s greatest road band. Not a ‘Deadhead?’ You’ll be entertained and enthralled by a musical legacy spanning jazz, folk, country western and their uniquely experimental ‘San Francisco Acid Rock Sound.’ After last year’s 50th reunion, hailed by Rolling Stone as the ‘popular culture event of the year,’ unprecedented critical attention has focused on the Grateful Dead’s widespread impact on American culture, art and musical heritage.

To celebrate the ‘Deads’ legacy, come enjoy a special musical performance by David Gans, co-host of Sirius XM radio’s ‘Tales from the Golden Road.’ Joining the conversation is Nicholas Meriwether, revered ‘rock scholar’ who directs University of California’s Grateful Dead Archive. Come be part of the ‘tribe’ – join the spirited high along with ‘Uncle John’s Band!’
