If you named your son Casey or your daughter Anne Marie; if you wear tie dye T-shirts underneath your work clothes; or if you have tape recorded in person more than 100 Grateful Dead shows, you won't want to miss Very Merry Jerry Day in Sarasota's Fogertyville Community Media and Arts Center.

Sponsored by WSLR, a nonprofit Sarasota radio station, this is the 6th annual event of its kind. Each year, about 300 to 500 people show up to hear bands play and appreciate the company of others who love both the music of the Grateful Dead, and also the other genres of music that make up the band's unique style. People come together to enjoy good music and to celebrate the life and musical legend of Jerry Garcia.
