Garcia said “We were great for seconds on end.” I was lucky to see Jerry play for about 1,000,000 seconds exactly. Thanks for your 1,000,000 views here . Dave Davis wrote this blog for 500 posts and 5 years from 2015 to 2019. Contact me at twitter @gratefulseconds

A Weekend in Rhode Island with Bobby's Band and Jerry's Band, March 10-11, 1978

So Rick Sullivan, formerly of Itheca, Berkeley, and Cumberland (?) Rhode Island, and my first tape trader pal, invited me down to his homie turf to see the newly formed BobWeir Band and the Jerry Garcia Band, on a weekend of my freshman year in college in Maine.

Time is a stripper, doin just for me. Enjoy this little wall down memory lane, almost forty years to when you could see Bobby and Jerry and their bands a few miles apart in little venues in Rhode Island.

By the way Love in the Afternoon cooked, as we seat in row 1 !!! thanks Rick and Rhapsody in Red rocked that night so hard.   Jerry did a little interview too (see youtube above)
