NOTE: the copyright notice will not appear on the print!

Jon Sievert has donated a print of this wonderful image, taken in Golden Gate Park on September 28, 1975.

Jon Sievert was the staff photographer and a writer and editor for Guitar Player, Keyboard, and Frets Magazines for more than 20 years. During that period, and in subsequent years, he photographed many of the greatest musicians of our time in all musical idioms, including Rock, Pop, Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass, Americana, Country, Classical, and Folk. His images have appeared on more than 100 magazine covers, dozens of album/CD covers, in film and television productions, and in hundreds of books and publications worldwide.

In 1996, he formed humble press to publish his book, Concert Photography: How to Shoot and Sell Music Business Photographs, which has sold more than 6,000 copies to date. He also served as the president of the (San Francisco) Bay Area Independent Publishers Association (with 200 member publishers) for two years, where he was actively involved in all aspects of independent book publishing, including design, self-publishing workshops, and coaching.

He and his wife, Wendy, moved to San Miguel de Allende in 2003, where he continues to write, design and produce books, photograph, and work on book projects.

    Hello Jon,

    I am working with producers Malcolm Leo and John Hartmann on a Jerry Garcia documentary and am personally in charge of building the website for this film. I am interested in using this picture of Jerry Garcia on the website and was wondering how I should go about getting the permission to use it. If allowed, I would leave the “1978 Jon Sievert” copyright caption in the lower right hand corner. Here are some links to articles in the press regarding this project.

    I can be contacted via e-mail at or on my cell phone (909) 615-6413. Thanks and hope to speak with you soon.

    Gina Podley
