This event, sells out every year in advance. Jeff Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert, has been known to fly in for this event on many occasions.
On a snowy night in February of 1994, Jeff Buckley played a legendary set at Uncommon Ground. This performance was lauded "Best Concert of the Year" by Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune, and was later recalled by Mr. Kot as one of the best concerts he's ever attended.
Jeff Buckley was born in California's Orange County in 1966 and died in a tragic drowning accident in Memphis on May 29, 1997. He had emerged in New York City's avant-garde club scene in the 1990's as one of the most remarkable musical artists of his generation, acclaimed by audiences, critics, and fellow musicians alike.
