The Chicago band has featured guest performances from six original Grateful Dead members and even toured with longtime Dead soundman, Dan Healy.

The festival will be home to over 25 musical acts whose style range from Grateful Dead rock-n-roll and hip-hop to livetronica, reggae and house music. This lineup is truly a collection of quality musicians who historically offer only the highest quality of performances, and we’re grateful to have each and every one of them joining us for the first ever The Catskill Mountain Jubilee.Catskill Mountain Jubilee Team
