The Jerry Garcia Foundation is joining Dead & Company on their 2016 summer tour at the Participation Row Charity Village — a collaborated effort of HeadCount and REVERB to promote equality, encourage voter registration and protect the planet.
The Dead & Company Band features the Grateful Dead talents of Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann along with guitarist/vocalist John Mayer, bassist Oteil Burbridge, and keyboardist, Jeff Chimenti.
“We are honored to be a part of The Participation Row charity village in the presence of music that continues to uplift and inspire,” said Manasha Garcia. “The Foundation is very grateful to Dead & Company, HeadCount and Reverb for their generosity.”
Concert dates have been scheduled through July 30, 2016. The Jerry Garcia Foundation’s guest charity partners, including Musicians On A Mission, 1% For The Planet, Alive Inside Foundation, Shimer College, Fender Music Foundation and Playing for Change Foundation, will share the table at Participation Row on designated event dates.
The Jerry Garcia Foundation is continuing its #RippleEffect #StoriesofGratitude Project by encouraging the community to write words of gratitude on a Gratitude Board provided at the Participation Row table. Concert attendees are invited to visit the JGF tent and to participate in this summer’s #StoriesofGratitude Art Project. The words written on the Gratitude Board will be collected and used to construct the #StoriesofGratitude Collage. It will then be added to the JGF website alongside the Playing for Change Ripple tribute video. The piece will make its debut on August 26, 2016, at an art/music event celebrating Jerry and being presented by Musicians On A Mission at the historic Strand Theater in Lakewood, New Jersey.
The concert will feature the music of Rainbow Full of Sound with guitar prodigy, Corby Pryor.
