The tradition of Jerry Garcia and the music of the Grateful Dead continues Wednesdays in April at Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre, with a touch of the Jefferson Airplane in the mix.
Wednesday April 6: Deadgrass will be returning to the Garcia’s stage. Led by Hudson Valley musician Matt Turk and Grammy award winner C Lanzbom Deadgrass also welcomes fiddler Clarence Ferrari and bassist Chris Conte to the lineup. If you remember enjoying Yonder Mountain String Band’s version “Shakedown Street” at the Dear Jerry concert, then this collection of traditional bluegrass interpretations of the music Jerry Garcia will hit the mark.

Wednesday April 13: From across the Tappan Zee Bridge in Rockland County, Reverend Jefferson will add some San Francisco variety to the DeadCenter mix. A tribute to the Jefferson Airplane, Reverend Jefferson is comprised of musicians with roots in other walks of the the jam band circuit. With three-part vocal harmonies, they have a powerful delivery of the sounds of Jefferson Airplane. [Tickets]
