New Riders of the Purple Sage at the Crystal Bay Club Crown Room
Date: Nov 29, 2013 (Fri)


In the summer of 1969, John Dawson was looking to showcase his songs while Jerry Garcia was looking to practic his brand new pedal steel guitar. The two played in coffeehouses and small clubs initially, and the music they made became the nucleus for a band—the New Riders of the Purple Sage.
