Bring a new, unwrapped toy to a show this November and we'll enter you for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.*

About Sisters & Brothers:
Sisters & Brothers is a collection of polished, driven, and adventurous musicians focused on creating the musically unique experience found within the catalogue of the Jerry Garcia Band. Creating excitedly smooth grooves and rhythmic sensation, the band cruises through classic JGB material with the genuine feeling for the music that famously defined Jerry Garcia and the spirit that he brought aside from The Grateful Dead. Their ability to touch upon the deepest emotion brings in many to experience what we've come to know as "Psychadelic Church.

About The 77z:
Drawing inspiration mainly from the 1970’s decade live Grateful Dead repertoire, the ‘77z came together as a project to celebrate their guitarist, Jake Hopping’s, 40th birthday party in 2017. What was originally conceived as a one-time party band evolved into a local staple among the Grateful Dead tribute bands of the central Virginia region. 

It is a guilty pleasure for all of the members to choose and perform these classic Grateful Dead songs since they have all been musically inspired by the Dead for decades. 

The band lineup also includes Chris Leva, Jay Starling, Craig Dougald and Darrell Muller. All are members of bands such as Love Canon, Indecision, Positive Collective and Ragged Mtn String Band to name a few. 

About Mama Tried:
Mama Tried is a 5-piece band from Charlottesville, Va., with Susan Munson on guitar and vocals, Charlie Pastorfield on guitar and vocals, Stuart Holme on bass, Kent Raine on drums, and Sam Johnston on keys, vocals and harmonica. These five play high-energy versions of early Grateful Dead songs, plus their own impressive material, with a heavy accent on improvisation. Even though their name is taken from a Merle Haggard tune, they are definitely a “jam band," with the ability to go out exploring while remaining cohesive, then get back smoothly to the original song, and make it all sound good. Members in Mama Tried also perform with some of Charlottesville's favorite bands, including Alligator, Mojo Pie, The Cows, and the Skip Castro Band. These seasoned musicians will not disappoint!

*Winners will be announced on Friday, December 1 during the Toy Lift main event. You do not need to be present to win – all winners will be contacted directly.
