‘The Englishtown Project’ brings back The Dead

The next Summer Concert on the Hudson is Wednesday, July 24 at 7 p.m.


‘The Englishtown Project’ reprises one of the Grateful Dead’s most famous and beloved appearances in the Garden State, when they headlined at Raceway Park in Englishtown on Sept.3rd, 1977.

In addition to the Dead, which was just completing its legendary tour highlighting new material from “Terrapin Station,” the show also featured New Riders of the Purple Sage and the good-time, southern rock Marshall Tucker Band.

You don’t have to be a Deadhead to appreciate this show, which will feature selections from each band’s set that day, as well as some surprises.

Some of the musicians featured in this show are current and former members of New Riders of the Purple Sage, Hot Tuna, Zen Tricksters, Phil Lesh and Friends, Donna Jean Godchaux Band with Jeff Mattson, Rainbow Full of Sound, Assembly of Dust, The Joe Cocker Band, Reverend Jefferson,  Illuminati, David Nelson Band, Max Creek, and Jam Stampede.

This concert will take place on Wednesday, July 24 at 7 p.m. at Lincoln Harbor Park, located just north of the Chart House restaurant directly on the west bank of the Hudson River in Weehawken.

Public transportation, including NJ Transit bus 158, Light Rail, and NY Waterway Ferry will bring concertgoers to Lincoln Harbor. And for those who choose to drive, free parking is available at the Weehawken Recreation Park within walking distance of Lincoln Harbor Park.
