For the third year in a row, Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh will host a “Seder” at his Terrapin Crossroads club in San Rafael, CA.  The event will take place next Friday, April 3.

The Seder is a Jewish ritual commemorating the start of the Passover holiday.  Traditionally, families and friends gather to recite from the “Haggadah,” recounting the story of the Jews being freed from slavery in Egypt.  Customs for the Seder feast include partaking of symbolic foods, including unleavened “matzoh” bread, drinking sweet wine and celebrating freedom with special blessings and Passover songs.

Lesh, who, in fact, is not Jewish, will commemorate the event with dining and conversation, followed by a special musical performance featuring Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz, Jason Crosby, Grahame Lesh, Ross James and Alex Koford.

This year’s Seder is sold out.
