Gaelic Park was purchased in 1926 by the Gaelic Athletic Association of Greater New York. It has been given a few different names over time including Innisfail Park, but since the 1950s it has gone by its current name, Gaelic Park, a reflection of the park’s Irish flavor. It was taken over by Manhattan College in 1991, and now currently goes under the official name of The Gaelic Park Sports Center.
Drove from Philly to NY with 5Towns native John Naitove-pro photographer. He got 4-5 rolls of great shots from in front of the stage--Rain and lightning punctuations. I was using my twin lens and kept havng to wipe the screen to see what I was shooting--a portrait-quality of Jerry changing strings got me a sit down with him at State Theater Columbus the next Haloween. Dont remember the music as much as the images that night--we went on to see a night of Dionne at Newport...
Hi..anyone out there been to this show? I had just gotten out of the Army, and caught this show. Also, I think it was the week before, The Allman Bros played there, and Jerry & Bob joined them for Mountain Jam...anyone remember that, or am I too old?!?!
We may be to old,but that show was great!If you member,capt beefhart,&capt beyond only did a minute to get right to the allmans.I was up frony w/some of my buds,passing these huge doobs around,& the folk next to us asked if it was okay to join us,which was no prob.When the allmans finally get on,these two jump up there,&it was bob & jeery,we didn;t even realize who we partied with til they started to play.What great folk,That was pretty sad,them trying to replace duane,but it worked.One of the best shows I can remember.
