Welcome to Jerrybase, a database of Jerry Garcia's musical activities.
Since the demise of The Jerry Site in 2014, and notwithstanding the awesome text setlists supplied by GDsets.com, we have wanted a site
that would allow more playing around with data about Jerry Garcia's musical life. We began with his "side projects" outside the Grateful Dead (GD). Joe Jupille has generated these, and Jerrybase serves as a data companion to his blog,
Jerry Garcia's Middle Finger
, which itself serves as a scratchpad for his book-in-progress, Fate Music: Jerry Garcia Beyond the Grateful Dead
Please send along any corrections, deletions, amendments, recollections, or other information about Garcia's side projects to him at email@example.com
Justin Mason supplies and maintains the Grateful Dead data. Over the last 10 years, Justin has worked to build an SQL database of updated and corrected Grateful Dead set lists. He used the available recordings
found on archive.org
, and collaborated with Grateful Dead experts like Corry Arnold as well as leveraging the information on circulating recordings from etree
, in his
Listen To The Music Play book project
. Any corrections or questions about the Grateful Dead set lists can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Brian Miksis researched and co-produced the official
Hart Valley Drifters
Before The Dead
, filling a void in studying Jerry's formative folk and bluegrass years.
He continues work on The Folk Scare
, his documentary film capturing Garcia and other Bay Area luminaries
those early years. Brian has contributed data to add the years 1961-1965 and will be caretaker of
changes and additions going forward. Please reach out to him

Beyond the principals, the site reflects the passion, hard work and dedication of

of us provided our first peek into the depths of the well.
