Jerry Garcia and Friends / Mickey And The Hartbeats
In October 1968 Bob Weir and Pigpen were reportedly sacked from the Grateful Dead. The remaining members of the band played a few shows at the Matrix in San Francisco at the end of October 1968 which were billed as Jerry Garcia and Friends. These shows are now often referred to as Mickey And The Hartbeats shows. Elvin Bishop sat in on guitar for one of the shows.
