AdvertisementJerry Day returns to Melbourne in 2023 for the ultimate celebration of the music of Jerry Garcia at Kindred Bandroom, Footscray.
This years event will pay homage to three of Garcia's most significant musical projects: The Grateful Dead, Old & in the Way and The Jerry Garcia Band.
Deadnecks play The Grateful Dead.
Deadnecks return to Jerry Day, taking Garcia's most iconic music and using it as a vehicle for their expansive jams rooted in psychedelic rock, blues, country and jazz.
Fresh off the back of their 5 hour marathon appearance at the final ever Boogie Festival, where they recreated the Dead's classic Bickershaw 72' performance plus a bonus set of disco Dead. Deadnecks are the only band in town that can get close to the explorative nature of The Grateful Dead's music.
The group recently featured as the backing band for US singer songwriter M.Ward on his Australian tour earlier this year, and appeared at last years Out On the Weekend festival performing A Celebration of Neil Young's Harvest with an all star line up.
The Westside locals are keen to bring their energetic and expansive repertoire of The Grateful Dead songbook back to Kindred Studios for Jerry Day 2023.
