Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration featuring Warren Haynes and a full orchestra will perform at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 4th. This new symphonic project celebrates American musical icon Jerry Garcia.
This ground-breaking orchestral adventure features Garcia’s storied original compositions as well as classic interpretations of timeless standards that were hallmarks of Garcia and the Grateful Dead’s shows. Renowned vocalist/guitarist Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule, The Dead) collaborates with the symphony, lending his soul-soaked, introspective blend of rock, blues, R&B and jazz to Garcia’s masterworks.
Haynes is a Grammy® Award-winning artist who ranked 23rd on Rolling Stone’s list of “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Haynes has played New York City’s historic Beacon Theater nearly 300 times, more than any other artist. Gov’t Mule has sold over two million song downloads from their own MuleTracks web site. And a wide range of stars including Garth Brooks, Gregg Allman, Phil Lesh, Little Milton, John Mayall, George Jones, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and Buckwheat Zydeco have recorded his songs in addition to the 25 songs he’s written for the Allman Brothers Band.
