Garcia Birthday Band (GBB), based in Portland Oregon, is a group of veteran musicians whose mission is to provide a premier Grateful Dead experience in the Pacific Northwest. It rules the entire Pekin Ferry Campground for a weekend filled with Grateful Dead music, fun under the sun down by the river, and bonfires at night. GBB celebrates and interprets the vast repertoire of Jerry Garcia and brings to life the good old vibes that were contagious ‘on tour’ back in the day.
The band’s quickly growing fan base finds the community spirit high and always ensures to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rockin’, hoppin’ and shakin’. GBB is the best platform for music lovers with an extensive playlist which includes classics from Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Cliff, Marty Robbins, Bruce Cockburn, Phish, Peter Tosh, and many more.
Enjoy the 6th annual GBB fest August 16th to the 18th and experience the band’s unique vibe shown at every performance.
