Jerry Dance Parties Announced for Dead & Company Cornell 2023 Weekend

Today, Dayglo Presents and Elmthree Present shared they’ll be bringing The Jerry Dance Party up to The Range on the commons in Ithaca, N.Y., on May 7 and 8. The shows will take place on the weekend of Dead & Company’s highly anticipated benefit concert at Cornell University’s Barton Hall. The Jerry Dance Party will celebrate a day ahead of the main event and the next day following Dead & Company’s celebration in honor of the Grateful Dead’s historic show at Barton Hall 46 years ago on May 8, 1977.

As always, The Jerry Dance Party will feature state-of-the-art audio combined with a mind-bending light and video experience and will be hosted by DJ Jerrbrother. The Jerry Dance Party is known for welcoming guests in after shows to celebrate all eras of Garcia’s career, with live cuts by Grateful Dead as well as Old & In The Way, Jerry Garcia Band, Merl Saunders, John Kahn, New Riders of the Purple Sage and many more.

“We’re bringing Garcia’s entire career to the dance floor for three-plus hours of the most ripping, psychedelic live tracks,” said DJ JerrBrother. “Undoubtedly, at every Jerry Dance Party, people come up to me and ask, ‘What show was that from?’ ‘What year is this song from?’.. I’ve combed through hours of live Garcia tracks to find the best of the best. We leave people with a renewed sense of exploration and love for the guy who brought it every night, Garcia.”

The first celebration (May 7) at the Range will kick off at 8 p.m. to warm people up, while the second evening (May 8) will commence at 11 p.m. following Dead & Company’s soon-to-be historic appearance.
