Join us for a night of Jerry tunes as we welcome the Jerry Garcia Band Cover Band, from Athens, Ga., to the pines on Saturday, Aug. 10th. This concert is sponsored by Sovah Health.

Formed in Athens, GA in 2012, JGBCB has been filling a hole in the Grateful Dead scene by offering up spirited covers of classic songs pulled exclusively from the repertoire of the Jerry Garcia Band, Garcia's long-running side-project. JGBCB has played shows from Key West to Colorado, exciting audiences with performances of beloved Garcia tunes not found within the traditional Grateful Dead catalog.
The Jerry Garcia Band (famously known to Dead Heads as "JGB") was as much a songwriting outlet for Garcia as it was a chance for him to cover the music he loved. With Jerry and bassist John Kahn as the band's staples (playing together as far back as 1970), a varied set of keyboardists, drummers, and backup singers filled out the lineup over the years, each bringing their own unique character to the band. Over the course of it's existence, JGB played a number of diverse musical styles, covering artists such as The Beatles, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, The Band, Jimmy Cliff, Smoky Robinson, The Rolling Stones, the Wailers, J.J. Cale, and Ray Charles. The list goes on and on, recalling the names of rock, soul, and folk royalty.

JGBCB will hit the stage around 9 pm. Tickets are just $12 adv // $17 at the gate. Camping is available: $10 per vehicle for tent campers, and $25 per RV or tow-behind camper.

Gates open to all camping vehicles at 4 p.m., and to non-campers at 7 p.m.

We'll have a food truck serving dinner under the pines. No outside alcohol is allowed. You may bring your own blankets, lawn chairs, non-alcoholic drinks and food into the venue.
