The Deadbeats with Special Guests: 30th Anniversary Celebration!
It was 30 years ago that The Deadbeats debuted at a Nevada City pub called Mad Dogs & Englishmen. After Jerry’s passing, the band created Jerry Bash, and for the last 28 years we have all celebrated the life and the music of Jerry Garcia along with The Deadbeats. Join us for a very special evening which will include a few surprises to commemorate three decades of making music!

Wolf Jett: Cosmic Mountain Music
Back by popular demand! Wolf Jett returns to Jerry Bash in 2024, bringing their eclectic blend of folk, blues and Americana that they describe as “cosmic mountain music.” Get ready for it — Wolf Jett will make you dance, sing and possibly even hooOoooowl!

Caltucky: Remembering Old & in the Way and Garcia/Grisman
In 1973 Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, Peter Rowan, Vassar Clemmons and John Kahn formed the short-lived but hugely influential bluegrass band Old & in the Way. The relationship spawned an album that has continued to be a bluegrass favorite through every decade with songs like “Midnight Moonlight,” “Pig in a Pen” and “Wild Horses.” It remained the best selling bluegrass album of all time until it was finally dethroned by Oh Brother Where Art Thou?

Kelly Fleming, Kellie Garmire & Friends: The Roots of the Grateful Dead
In their 30 year career, the Grateful Dead took inspiration from a stunning variety of American musical traditions from blues to country to folk to rock and transforming songs from artists ranging from Merle Haggard to Chuck Berry and from Cannon’s Jug Stompers to Bob Dylan. Come early, and relive many of your favorite songs you might of thought they wrote! “Jack-A-Roe,” “Cold Rain & Snow,” “El Paso,” “Going Down the Road” and so many more beloved classics. Kelly Fleming, Kellie Garmire & Friends features Pete Grant and Juliet Gobert joining Kelly and Kellie.
