The San Francisco Giants will pay tribute to music legend Jerry Garcia on Monday, August 9, when they face the Chicago Cubs at 7:15 p.m. Garcia and the Grateful Dead are synonymous with San Francisco and each year the City celebrates “the days between” which are the days within Garcia’s birthday (August 1) and the day of his passing (August 9).




All fans attending the game will be treated to pre-game, live musical performances from some of San Francisco’s most popular Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead cover bands and a home plate ceremony featuring a video tribute to Garcia with many of his family members in attendance. Garcia’s daughter, Annabelle Garcia, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch and Grateful Dead member Bob Weir will perform the National Anthem and Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart will lead fans in a special 7th Inning Stretch celebration. In an attempt to set an official Guinness World Record for the world’s largest kazoo ensemble, Hart will lead more than 7,000 kazoo playing fans in “Take Me Out To The Ball Game.”
