Jerry Garcia Birthday Bash August 1

KZUM is thrilled to present our annual Jerry Garcia Bash, set for Friday, August 1 at The Bourbon Theatre!

We hope you can join us to celebrate the life and music of one of American music's most legendary performers, Jerry Garcia.

We're excited to be joined again this year by the incredibly talented Jerry Pranksters, who are some of the best around when it comes to properly paying tribute to the music of Garcia (who would have turned 72 on the day) and the Grateful Dead. We're pleased to also welcome The Midland Band to this year's Jerry Garcia Birthday Bash!

Music Starts at 7:30 and the evening will also include a prize raffle and merchandise sales. Your $6 admission at the door is a direct donation to KZUM.

Please join KZUM, The Jerry Pranksters and The Midland Band for a night of inspired music as we celebrate the life of Jerry Garcia, the music of The Grateful Dead and the power to carry it on via community radio.

KZUM Presents: Stransky - A Free Summer Concert Series

KZUM is pleased to present a series of 10 free concerts this summer at Lincoln's Stransky Park (17th Street & Harrison Avenue).

The outdoor concerts will begin at 7 p.m. every Thursday — weather permitting — June 5–August 14 (with the exception of July 3).

Performers are supported largely by free-will donations during the concert. This community support has helped to grow the series into one of Lincoln's most popular music events for both audiences and performers.

Audience members are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair. Parking is available on the streets of the surrounding neighborhood and drivers are reminded to leave driveways unblocked. Dog owners should take responsible steps to keep the event pet friendy.

Following 10 years of management by the Irvingdale Neighborhood Association, The Stransky Park Concert Series will continue to offer accessible and family friendly live music events in the beautiful neighborhood setting. KZUM has long been committed to providing quality music on the airwaves and we look forward to maintaining that committment at the concert series.

A very special thanks to these generous local sponsors for making this series a reality:
