While “Tiger” never made it on stage, Peavy told us that he brought it to a late night jam session that featured some of the Bay Area’s most prominent players.Those same players will join forces for Can’t Stop The Train, a benefit concert for both the Jake Peavy Foundation and the Rex Foundation. The show itself will take place on August 17th, and will feature Peavy (and his band, The Outsiders), as well as an all-star cast that includes Jackie Greene, Col. Bruce Hampton, Jeff Sipe, Cody & Luther Dickinson, and Jennifer Hartswick of Trey Anastasio Band. It all goes down at The Fillmore, only adding to the excitement of this show!Major League Deadhead: Jake Peavy’s Unlimited Devotion To The Grateful DeadThe show is also one day before AT&T Park hosts Jerry Garcia Day, and the benefit will serve as a preamble for the large scale festivities. “Jerry Garcia Day at AT&T [park] is always such a huge event,” said Jake Peavy in a statement. “Coming to play baseball in the Bay Area, and seeing all of the enthusiasm for the Grateful Dead among the Giants fanbase…it inspired me to do something for those fans. And what better partnering organization to team up with than the Grateful Dead’s own Rex Foundation. We’re honored to be a part of this event and it’s going to be a very special night.”Special guests are expected be announced soon, and tickets are available through the Rex Foundation website starting this Friday, July 8th.last_img
