Music This Week July 27th thru Aug 2nd

Hey there,
I’m still trying to catch up from my vacation. I have posted all the music I’ve recorded since I returned home, including the private 4th of July party as well as Camp Amped.
This week is one of my favorites, celebrating Jerry Garcia’s birthday. As always I need a clone to help catch it all. I’ll miss the Jerry Jam on Sat in Atlanta because I’ll be at Cosmic Charlie at the Foundry. I will be at Jerry Day in Atlanta at Terminal West on Sunday. It is an all day party with Cosmic Charlie headlining 8 bands and playing two sets. Check it out at: http://www.jerrydayatl.com/jerrydayatl/Jerry_Day_ATL.html
I hope to start going through the 1600 pictures I took on vacation and will try to post some of them so y’all can see some of the amazing things I saw.
