On March 30, a group of musicians, friends and family members will gather at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles for “Jubilee: A Celebration of Jerry Garcia.”
The event—organized by BGS (The Bluegrass Situation), The Jerry Garcia Family, and Goldenvoice Productions—will feature the Jubilee House Band (feat. Benmont Tench, Sean Watkins, Tyler Chester, and Jay Bellerose), Amos Lee, Banditos, Billy Strings, David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, Hiss Golden Messenger, Jamie Drake, Josh Ritter, Mike Campbell, Molly Tuttle and Willie Watson.
In addition to the scheduled performers, The Garcia Family will organize a silent auction to benefit charitable causes like the Rex Foundation, the Jerry Garcia Foundation, and the Center for Biological Diversity.
“This is an evening to celebrate the life and legend of Jerry Garcia, a man whose career spans far beyond the Grateful Dead, spilling into various genres and countless collaborations.” Amy Reitnouer, executive director of BGS (The Bluegrass Situation) and the event producer said in an official statement. “Jerry’s life and music still resonates with the people who knew him best, and the multiple generations of artists directly influenced by his art. We could not be more excited to bring those people together to celebrate his legacy.”
Tickets are available here.
