Saturday Dead Reckoning w/ members of Webster

Event Navigation

In the fall of 1980, the Grateful Dead played a series of shows at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco and Radio City Music Hall in New York City (venues considerably smaller than they had grown accustomed to). The group opened these special concerts with a super tasty acoustic set with the band playing stripped-down instrumentation and at lower volumes.. with Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir demonstrating their deep musical connection through their acoustic guitars. These shows became the classic live album Reckoning.

Members of Atlanta’s long-running, classic jam band- WEBSTER offer a free dinner show in the spirit of those famous ‘Reckoning’ shows. The instruments are acoustic, the spirit will be electric.
