October 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Local musicians Eli Madden and Sunshine will be joined by other local faves to celebrate the life and music of the amazing Robert Hunter!
“Grateful Dead fans and the greater music community were sent into shock and sadness when news broke that Robert Hunter, the longtime songwriting partner to Jerry Garcia and the man responsible for many of the band’s most beloved lyrics, died on September 23, 2019 at the age of 78.
Deadheads around the country have since flooded social media in gratitude to the late musician and songwriter with tribute posts comprised of their favorite lyrics from Hunter. Members of the Grateful Dead family, along with other notable musicians within the jam scene also shared their loving thoughts on the man behind the poetic genius of songs like “Dark Star”, “Terrapin Station”, “Ripple”, “Uncle John’s Band’”, and many more.”
