The Chambers Project Proudly Presents: Benefit Concert For Uncle Jay


Join us on Sunday April 7th at The Chambers Project for a very special concert to support our friend and fellow Nevada County resident, Uncle Jay.


I am honored to be bringing some of my closest friends and most favorite musicians to the incredible psychedelic art gallery “The Chambers Project” in Grass Valley, CA on Sunday, April 7th for a day of art and music to benefit my dear Uncle Jay, an absolute pillar of that community.

Uncle Jay and Aunt Mary were there the day I was born and they are some of the kindest people and greatest champions of Dawg music on planet earth. They have known my dad since they came backstage at the Great American Music Hall in 1976 with a killer joint, and they’ve been dear friends ever since. Jay is a masterful cannabis cultivator, an incredibly brilliant renaissance man, and a great mandolin picker!

Many a David Grisman Quintet show and recording session has been fueled by Jay’s incredible herb, and Jay and Mary have made friends with legions of folks around the country through their passion for music and their supremely high caliber artisanship. Lots of amazing musicians have enjoyed Jay’s weed over the years including the likes of Jerry Garcia, John Hartford, Willie Nelson, Tim O’Brien, Jerry Douglas, and Sam Bush. I even once handed I joint I rolled of Jay’s weed directly to Merle Haggard, and I know he loved it!

Unfortunately, Uncle Jay has a battle with cancer ahead of him, and to spread awareness and raise some funds for his medical expenses we’ll be having a day of music and art in his honor. I’ll have the great @chrishollywoodenglish , @domles , @roywilliamsmusic , and myself as the house band, and we’ll be joined by a bunch of Jay’s musical supporters, including DGQ Alumnus Joe Craven, and his Daughter Hattie, fellow Dawg alum Matt Eakle, the legendary “Banana” of the Youngbloods, and more friends to come! There will also be a silent auction, some merchandise, and some special surprises, and all of the proceeds will go directly to benefit Jay and Mary as they kick cancers ass and launch the greatest YouTube channel on the planet!

Tickets are on sale now, thanks for your support.
