Did a bus come by and you got on and that's where it all began? Is it an obsession that's pleasin' but at least you're enjoying the ride? Then it's time to continue the long strange trip at Northern VA's largest Jerry Garcia Birthday Celebration - Jerry Bash 6: Gar-C-Ya in Alexandria!
This special Dead show re-creation will feature the music of Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead as performed by two of the area's hottest bands within the Dead and Jam Band Scene, On the Bus and Free Flowing Musical Experience (3 sets).
On the Bus is the longest-running premier Grateful Dead tribute band in the Washington DC area, and is known for its faithful recreation of the music, vibe and experience of a Grateful Dead show. On The Bus is not just a tribute to the Dead, but to the entire community that spawned a multi-generational genre that artfully blends the essential elements of rock, blues, jazz, funk, country, bluegrass, and gospel.
Free Flowing Musical Experience, Alexandria's Legendary Acoustic Jam Band, aims to capture the diversity of their musical influences and expand upon each song as an improvisational journey into what can be found on the other end. FFME's unique acoustic take on the Dead/Jam Band genre will impress even the most hardened Dead loyalists and continues to attract an ever increasing fan base.
Dancing, food and drinks will be set up like a bowling pin. This event will sellout so get your tickets early! VIP packages available.
