Today, August 1st, marks what would have been the 73rd birthday of the late great Jerome John AKA Jerry Garcia. Garcia, who passed away August 9, 1995 at the age of 53, left behind a musical legacy and fans still so dedicated that the week between his birthday and date of his death is widely known as ‘Jerry Week’.

Commemorated by deadheads, music lovers, bands, musicians, artists and artisans from all over, Jerry week activities are abundant. Since our upcoming week is related to all things Jerry (and the Grateful Dead), our Sunday Spotlight for this week is coming to you a little early. It’s a sneak peek at all of the Jerry related shows coming this week in our area.

Please check back all this week for more of One Unified’s own version of Jerry Week! The Wheel keeps turning….
