An evening of Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia performed by some of the Jam scene’s most prolific players.

This performance is a DANCE SHOW with two types of seating options.

The Orchestra will be sold as General Admission.  If you purchase this type of seating, you will have access to downstairs seating areas and the Viewing Platform as space allows. These areas will be first-come first-served on the night of the performance.

All seats in the balcony are Reserved.  If you purchase seats in this area you will have an assigned seat on the night of the show in the balcony.

Dancing will be allowed in BOTH seating areas but not in aisles due to fire safety regulations.


Zach Nugent
It usually only takes one show to understand why Zach Nugent is one of the most sought after guitarists in the live music scene. Since touring as de-facto Garcia expert with Melvin Seals & JGB, he continues to build his dedicated following, putting together and leading multifaceted groups for special runs and festival appearances. Never one to shy away from new and challenging ideas, his performances promise intensity and beauty in the delivery of the music that he’s built a reputation with.
Tony Markellis
In over four decades as a professional musician and producer, Markellis has toured and/or recorded with Trey Anastasio, The Mamas & Papas, Paul Butterfield, David Bromberg, Kilimanjaro, David Amram, Johnny Shines, Ellen McIlwaine, The Burns Sisters, Rosalie Sorrels, Mary McCaslin, Jim Ringer, Paul Siebel, Eric Von Schmidt, Michael Jerling, Bob Warren, Rosanne Raneri, Phil Cody, Railbird, Jo Henley, Floodwood, Krewe Orleans, and countless others.

As a founding member of the award-winning Vermont-based jazz fusion quartet Kilimanjaro and The Unknown Blues Band featuring Big Joe Burrell, Tony has performed at concert halls, clubs and festivals all over North America, Europe and Russia.

In constant demand for his studio experience, he has produced albums by singer/songwriters such as Michael Jerling, Bob Warren, Chris Shaw & Bridget Ball, Rosanne Raneri, Camille West, Peggy Lynn and Tom Mitchell, as well as blues artists Mark Tolstrup and Martin Grosswendt. As he puts it, “I have a soft spot in my heart (or maybe my head) for singer/songwriters, especially good ones.”
