Full Show Friday: Jerry Garcia Band with Bruce Hornsby

[Originally Published: August 31, 2012]

Happy Friday everybody. Congrats on making it through a tough work week, but now it’s time to relax, kick your feet up and enjoy a long holiday weekend. For this week’s Full Show Friday selection we’ve got one of the most highly-regarded Jerry Garcia Band shows of all-time. When the JGB played the Hampton Coliseum on November 9, 1991 they were joined by none other than Bruce Hornsby.

Jer always seemed to get a huge kick out of jamming with Hornsby as Bruce always challenged and pushed Garcia. That was true on this night as the JGB and Hornsby tear through a setlist that featured some of the best songs in the band’s repertoire including Run For The Roses, Don’t Let Go, Midnight Moonlight and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. YouTuber LoloYodel has combined two separate fan-shot camera angles with a soundboard soundtrack making for a superb set of videos.

  1. That whole show ESP. The 2nd set gives me so much hope!! Bright side of the road > shinning star just puddles me every time! Jer has so much gut renching soul & gusto!!’ This show is part of a pure Jer serious. This whole show makes my day filled of happyness gratitude and hope! I share this show with everyone! On the bright side of the road!!!!

  2. Sorry to nitpick but to me “Run For The Roses” and “best songs” don’t belong in the same sentence. I saw JGB over 100 times and never got into that song. In fact, the entire “Run For The Roses” album sucked. Jerry at his worst.

  3. Great post, Scotty. Love the Hornsby accompaniment, as does Jerry about 3 min into “You Never Can Tell”. Keep the Hornsby stuff coming!
