On Sept. 3, 1977, the Grateful Dead headlined one of the largest and most musically successful concerts of all time at Raceway Park in Englishtown N.J. In addition to the Dead, who had just completed its legendary Spring / Summer 1977 tour featuring a batch of new material from Terrapin Station, the show also included the Dead family’s New Riders of the Purple Sage and the good-time, southern rock Marshall Tucker Band. This tribute extravaganza will feature healthy “doses” of selections from each band’s sets that day with a relaxed, festival style program. AT ANY GIVEN SHOW THE FAMILY OF PLAYERS CAN FEATURE CURRENT AND FORMER MEMBERS OF New Riders of the Purple Sage, Hot Tuna, Zen Tricksters, Phil Lesh and Friends, Donna Jean Godchaux Band with Jeff Mattson, Rainbow Full of Sound, Assembly of Dust, The Joe Cocker Band, Reverend Jefferson, Stir Fried, Dead Sage, Illuminati, David Nelson Band, Dead On Live, Max Creek, Jam Stampede
