Betty Cantor-Jackson is a living legend in the Grateful Dead world. She is directly responsible for some of the Dead’s most enduring and beloved recordings, and was instrumental as both an engineer and producer on some of the Dead’s greatest studio and live work. Betty’s Deadication to her artistry resulted in some of the most jaw-droppingly gorgeous soundboard recordings of the Grateful Dead (or ANYONE) in concert ever captured. These tapes, known universally as “Betty Boards”, became the “Holy Grail” for the Grateful Dead, as fans all over the world traded them with their friends and newfound fans in the U.S. and overseas, and directly and in very large part fueled the Grateful Dead’s popularity around the world.

As this special event’s name implies, Betty will be choosing the setlist for the show, and will thereby offer attendees a truly unique opportunity to experience her very own personalized “wish list” Grateful Dead show.

CRYPTICAL and their Friends are delighted to be able to honor Betty Cantor-Jackson and celebrate not only her birthday, but her significant contributions to both the Grateful Dead and our collective musical lives. We hope you can join the party!
