Jackie Greene

Perhaps the Big Room’s most popular performer, Jackie Greene returns for an epic Friday night Big Room show. Jackie began his career as a teenager working the bar and open mic circuit around his hometown of Sacramento. Since then, he has recorded seven albums and two EPs, released a DVD and published a book of lyrics. In 2006, Greene joined Phil Lesh & Friends, thrusting him in front of a new audience of open-minded music listeners and fastidious Deadheads. In 2013, Jackie was asked to join The Black Crowes for their epic worldwide tour. Greene drifted deeper into the Dead world when his friendship with Robinson and Bob Weir resulted in a new trio. And, by chance, he also joined Trigger Hippy, a super group that features Joan Osborne and Crowes drummer Steve Gorman. For this visit, Jackie gets his old band together to give you a look at Jackie Greene 2016.

Get your tickets early and yes, the dance floor is open.
