7th Annual Jerry Day a Success!!! Summer Hoot Aug 9!

28 Jul

Gans'n'Grapes

Great times last night as we celebrated the life and music of Jerry Garcia!  It was an amazing energy that flowed from the first note at 3PM all the way through non-stop until 12:15AM – it was fairly mind-blowing to tell you the truth, and as I like to put it (because it’s true!), the musicians brought their A Game to the forefront!  As not one song was repeated all day long, each song was a gem.  Highlights included slide master Benji Shanks joining Atlanta favorite Swami Gone Bananas, Deep Blue Sun’s entire set and David Gans’s set with 5 members of The Grapes joining the mix!  Really though, the entire day was one long great highlight.

Congratulation to Lewis Newmark and Jim Roe, whose vision this has been since the get go, and special THANKS our sponsors – VIDA-FLO Hydration Station, Terrapin Beer Co. and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., to all the crew at Terminal West for their outstanding service and help, Paul Dunaway for the stellar sound on the Terrapin Stage, Wildman Steve & Spike for their (as always) amazing job at emcees, and Jessi Leigh Harris and Linda Brackner for coordinating the fine vending there.  This journey turned a corner yesterday, and I know that TDawg Presents is looking forward to continuing the magic with all these kind folks NEXT year at Terminal West!  Truly, what a long strange trip it’s been.  Keep on truckin’ y’all!!!
