    Splintered Sunlight
    Splintered Sunlight
    Formed in 1992, Splintered Sunlight quickly became the most popular Grateful Dead Tribute band in the Philadelphia area, gaining praise from Dead Heads and Non Heads alike. Since that time, Splintered Sunlight has become a permanent fixture for music in the mid-Atlantic region.

    Splintered Sunlight has a play list of well over two hundred songs, spanning the thirty year career of The Grateful Dead (as well as numerous other classic rock songs) from which it skillfully crafts each shows set list, carefully endeavoring to not repeat songs - let alone set lists-in the same or even nearby venues. Splintered Sunlight and its members have performed with Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead, as well as former Grateful Dead members, Donna Jean Godcheaux; and pianist Tom Constanten. They have also performed with longtime Grateful Dead collaborator Merle Saunders and Jimmy Herring, recent guitarist for The Dead. In addition, Splintered has shared the stage with many notable Dead related acts including Kingfish, Jorma Kaukonen and Jefferson Starship, among others.
    Positively Garcia Book Launch
    Positively Garcia Book Launch
    Positively Garcia is the story of the rise of the Jerry Garcia Band from their early California club gigs through the band’s glory days in the early ‘80s. Author and Garcia aficionado Howard Weiner ranks JGB’s greatest shows, and explores the sublime solos and transcendent moments from those performances in essays that are accompanied by rare concert photos. In the second part of this book, Howard—a veteran of sixty JGB shows—recalls all the joys and madness associated with extreme touring. For Howard, pursuing JGB was all business, and he took it very personally. The chronicles of Positively Garcia shine a new light on an intimate and essential slice of Garcia’s prolific career.

    Howard Weiner is the author of the memoir Tangled Up in Tunes: Ballad of a Dylanhead, and he created and hosted Visions of Dylan, a series of programs that aired on 99.5 FM, WBAI, New York. Howard’s new book, Positively Garcia: Reflections of the JGB will be available August 1.
