Asked to describe the Grateful Dead's music, Garcia is reported to have quipped, “We were great for seconds on end.” (stolen from Cubensis site)

Jerry Garcia Band 15-Show East Coast November 1993 Tour Grabs $4 Million

Happy Birthday Jerry #77.  I'll hang with you in about 20.  Weir will still be playing 250 nights at year then.

Typically when I saw the Jerry Garcia Band the audience size was maybe a few hundred and some times 2 thousand or so.  Just released Garcia Live 11 id from a bigger era

But late era Jerry Garcia Band grew to arena size, specifically in the three giant East Coast tours in September 1989, November 1991 and the biggest one he ran in November 1993 when 15 shows averaged more than 11,000 tickets sold per gig for a cool $4 million in gross.  Knowing Jerry you probably netted $2 million and split it evenly with the band. :)  JGMF has some very cool detail to the 1993 tour including http://jgmf.blogspot.com/search/label/1993 for everything and what I think is the coolest item the November 1993 tour, the tourbook http://jgmf.blogspot.com/2018/01/the-hypothesis-is-wong-long-live.html  This thing is way cool.
