Free Dead in the Park Concert

Stella Blues Band presents “Free Dead in the Park Concert” to benefit Riverkeeper

Stella Blue’s Band returns this year for the second annual Free Dead in the Park Concert to benefit Riverkeeper.

The Free Dead in the Park Concert marks the anniversary of The Grateful Dead’s epic May 5, 1968 show at the Naumburg Bandshell which was attended by nearly 5,000 people. It will also raise money for Riverkeeper programs protecting the Hudson River, its watershed and the drinking water for 9 million New Yorkers.

New this year: Exclusive commemorative t-shirts featuring original artwork created by Jerry Garcia in 1992 for Riverkeeper’s benefit. Get yours with a $40 donation to Riverkeeper >
