WHAT:
Wavy Gravy’s 75th Birthday Boogie!
A benefit for Seva Foundation

Bay Area cultural icon Wavy Gravy is turning 75 years young this year – and you’re invited to his party! Wavy Gravy will host a benefit concert featuring a legendary lineup of musicians, including Bob Weir & Mickey Hart, performing alone and together with Steve Kimock, Mark Karan, Henry Kaiser, Jeff Chimenti, John Molo, Pete Sears, Nicki Bluhm & Robin Sylvester. Also on the bill is Zero, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Ace of Cups, the Clown Conspiracy and surprise guests!

We are extremely grateful to Wavy Gravy, and all of the musicians performing in support of Seva,” said Seva’s Executive Director, Jack Blanks. “Their generosity, along with donations from Bay Area audience members, will support Seva’s programs that restore sight to the blind, train doctors in places where there are few, and bring services to indigenous communities around the world. Seva is a Sanskrit word meaning Service, and we welcome you to join with Seva as we serve those in need around the world. We are honored by the music community’s recognition of our work.”
