Daze Between, a nine-day stream event celebrating Jerry Garcia, has announced a lineup featuring Grateful Dead, Dead & Company, The Jerry Garcia 75th Birthday Band, and many more.
The term “Days Between” refers to the nine-day stretch in early August celebrated by Deadheads each year commemorating the life and work of Garcia between the day of his birth in 1942 (August 1st) and the day of his death in 1995 (August 9th). This will mark the first year that the holiday will be celebrated online, as fans mourn 25 years since the loss of the beloved musician during a summer virtually devoid of regular live concerts.
The full lineup will feature performances by ALO, Andy Thorn, Amigo the Devil, Amos Lee, Bob Weir & The Campfire Band, Circles Around The Sun, Dark Star Orchestra, David Grisman, Del McCoury Band, Della Mae, From Good Homes, Fruition, Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad, Graham Nash, Greensky Bluegrass, Greg Errico, Hiss Golden Messenger, Hot Tuna, Jackie Greene, Jason Crosby, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Katie Skene, Keller Williams, Kitchen Dwellers, Leslie Mendelson, Lettuce ft. Melvin Seals, Marco Benevento, Midnight North, Molly Tuttle, Nicki Bluhm, Peter Rowan, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Railroad Earth, Roots of Creation, Ross James, Sandy Rothman, Seth Walker, Scott Law, Tejon Street Corner Thieves, The Infamous Stringdusters, The Record Company, Travelin’ McCourys, Twiddle, Tyler Grant & Lindsay Lou, Yonder Mountain String Band, and more to be announced.
In addition to music, this fundraising event for The Rex Foundation will also include screenings of Move Me Brightly and Fire on the Mountain, as well as auctions, storytelling, photos, and much more. During Daze Between, fans will have the chance to win a guitar signed by Bob Weir during an auction of Grateful Dead memorabilia, in addition to books of Jay Blakesberg‘s photography, a complete set of Garcia-inspired posters by Chuck Sperry, and more.
“Daze Between is a celebration of all things good, giving + the Grateful Dead,” a press release stated. “Through the nine days of programming, a wide range of artists, storytellers, community members, and Rex will come together to show the fabric of the community. We have always looked to Garcia’s words and music for hope in hard times; and in the 25th year since his passing, we are once again coming together as a community to celebrate and honor his impact.”
The nine-day Daze Between stream begins on August 1st with Rock My Soul, a day-long celebration of what would have been Garcia’s 78th birthday, presented by FANS.com. Head to the Daze Between website for more information and scroll down to see a full schedule of streams.
