Watch and Brand News Unlimited Devotion: An Evening of Goodness

unlimited-692x1024Govberg Jewelers relishes the nuances of a collector’s life. We have a deep appreciation for the community that is built around a shared interest; from the traditions and at times quirky rituals, to the ease of conversation and uninhibited excitement. In the case of the upcoming Unlimited Devotion event, the common interest is the Grateful Dead; and not just the music, the entire Dead culture.

During a weekend-long celebration this June, hundreds will gather along the Main Line for a celebration of the music, art and culture of an extraordinary band. ‘Unlimited Devotion’ will kick off on Friday, June 10th with live music from Splintered Sunlight, one of the great Grateful Dead cover bands, a festive celebration of Wavy Gravy’s 80th birthday and a gallery showing of Grateful Dead artwork from Scott Shapiro’s personal collection.

The events continue on Saturday, June 11th with an additional gallery viewing, plus an exclusive showing of Wavy Gravy’s documentary, “Saint Misbehavin” at the Bryn Mawr Film Festival.  The culmination of this weekend will be a surprise concert at the Ardmore Music Hall. You can learn more at unlimiteddevotion.eventbrite.com.

Scott Shapiro has been a longtime friend of Govberg Jewelers, and his collecting life extends beyond Grateful Dead artwork and memorabilia – he also has an appreciation for watches. As we explored the commonalities of collector culture, it was a natural fit for us to get involved in this happening.
