Backburners Presents – The 8th (almost) Annual Jerry Garcia Birthday Party. Deadicated To The Memory of Sam Schuster
It’s been a few years since we’ve put on a Jerry Birthday party. So many have joined the crusade of preserving the music of the Grateful Dead, it began to seem redundant. However, with Sam’s passing, we are moved to celebrate his favorite band, while raising money for his son’s living expenses.
The Backburners are a formidable musical collective steeped in the ethic of teamwork, spontaneity and fine musicianship. A special line up has been formed for this occasion. Lead vocal duties will be passed between guitarist Kyle Esposito, bassist Doug Marcus and drummer Denise Parent. Harmonies will be contributed by the aforementioned as well as drummer Manuel Quintana. Bob Resnick’s percussion will round out the fierce rhythm section, last heard at the epic Jerry party at the old Colony about 5 or 6 years ago. Master keyboardist Jeremy Baum will be present, insuring some fine musical excursions… Many Special Guests are expected!
