He is making a series of public appearances associated with his book, 40 years of photographing the GD. He had tons of photos for sale (too expensive for me) and gave a 2 hour lecture slide show that was hilarious, then he had Oteil Burbridge for a Q&A and interview. It was great. I have met Oteil before so it was great to say hi again. I took a bass class with him last year. Oteil lives locally so we were lucky to have him for this particular lecture. He is an awesomely cool guy and loads of fun to listen to.
This one was at a JCC in Davie, FL but he has been all over doing these. It was PACKED with deadheads, hundreds of people, SRO. Check Jay's FB page. Jay's entire extended family was at this one as they all live locally here in South Florida.
Jay is a friend, I've had the pleasure of photographing with him a couple of times and he helped me out bigtime once. I agree his presentation is great - full of stories and funny anecdotes, and Jay is not shy at all. Very inspiring.
