Last year marked the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead. To celebrate the band’s legendary status, Phil Lesh started hosting a series of shows at his Terrapin Crossroads to honor each of the years that the Dead were in motion.On October 17, the series continues at the San Rafael venue with a tribute to Grateful Dead’s 1994 persona. The Grateful Dead bassist will be joined by guitarists Grahame Lesh and Stu Allen, keyboardist Scott Guberman, and drummers Ezra Lipp and Alex Koford. Tickets are currently available for the show here.The venue’s post below describes the magic that took place in 1994, the year that the band members were officially inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “It was a moment in time where the band was able to reflect on the wonderful journey they had been on since their inception in 1965, and thank the Deadheads who stood by them all those years,” the post explains. It was also the last year of touring before the band lost their leader Jerry Garcia. Read more below:
