Phil Lesh, Jake Peavy & So Many More Come Together For Jerry Garcia Tribute Benefit [Videos]

first_imgThe month of August has essentially become one long celebration for the late great Jerry Garcia in the city of San Francisco, CA, as the Grateful Dead guitarist was born on August 1st and passed away on August 9th. In turn, the San Francisco Giants planned a “Jerry Garcia Night” that took place yesterday, August 18th, and some esteemed members of the Giants organization paid that good will forward with their own tribute to Garcia at The Fillmore.On Wednesday, August 17th, Giants’ pitcher Jake Peavy and his band The Outsiders hosted “Can’t Stop The Train” in conjunction with the Rex Foundation. So many special guests came along for the celebration, including Jackie Greene, Jennifer Hartswick, Luther Dickinson, Cody Dickinson, Stu Allen, Tim Flannery, Ross James and Col. Bruce Hampton, among many more. Allen even performed with the famed “Tiger” guitar, bringing its hallowed tones to life through a guitar rig very similar to the one Garcia used himself.Garcia’s bandmate Phil Lesh made the biggest splash of the night, joining in during the later portion of the show to accompany on “U.S. Blues” and “Shakedown Street.”You can watch video highlights from the night, streaming below.After Midnight w/ Jackie Greene (via Stephen Mucelli)Stella Blue w/ Stu Allen playing “Tiger” (via Stephen Mucelli)US Blues w/ Phil Lesh (via Michael Berman)Shakedown Street w/ Phil Lesh, Grahame Lesh & More (via Stephen Mucelli)last_img read more
