August First is a Massachusetts based project that celebrates the many musical incarnations of Jerry Garcia and more. These musicians found themselves particularly drawn to the stylings of Jerry and David Grisman. August First is an acoustic arrangement, full in sound, and layered with sweet harmonies. They are not your typical tribute band; playing traditionals, originals, bluegrass, classic rock, and blues defining their style as Blues-Grassicana. Come celebrate the many musical lives of Jerry Garcia and more with August First.
