Time is ticking away before Bowling Green’s Grateful Gathering takes place this weekend. Do you have your tickets? As we told you the last time this will help benefit the Son Rhea Foundation and how it was founded in 2000 to offset music program cuts by providing musical equipment and cash to South Central Kentucky Schools (all counties). Approx $200,000 has been donated in the organization’s 10-year existence all from the Grateful Gathering!

The Grateful Gathering is a festival featuring Grateful Dead, jam-band, and progressive music by local and regional artists, arts and crafts, kid’s activities such as face painting, magic show, and a clown, all with an emphasis on fun. Dancing will be encouraged.

It’s all about the music – music in our schools, music students, as well as the music at the festival.

This festival is for everyone: Dead-Heads, hippies, bikers, musicians, artists, So Central KY students and their parents, 60s/70s nostalgia buffs, music lovers, and anyone who enjoys a good time.

The current band lineup:

The Pranksters – Louisville, KY – playing Grateful Dead

Brennan Graves & Dan Robinson – Bowling Green, KY – Acoustic with a kick – Grateful Dead and jam band material

Steely James – Nashville, TN – Acoustic Grateful Dead and some originals. You missed him at Greener Groundz on June 12th doing Not Fade Away.

The Terrapin Travelers – Northern Kentucky’s finest. Playing acoustic jams for your pleasure.

Felonious Funk – Bowling Green – Funking it up for you jam style!

Fatbox – Bowling Green – They don’t mind stretching out a jam for you!

Just added to the Grateful Gathering, Televermin will be kicking things off this Saturday! Get your tickets now!

Amenities will include food and beverage by Wha Bahs, vendors featuring tie-dyes, bandanas, Birkenstocks, leather goods, hand-crafted jewelry, flowers, merchandise from the performing bands, and hopefully a few more. A good time will be had by all!
