Patrick grew up in Northern Virginia and played the D.C., Md and Va music circuit until 1989 when he moved to Seattle. ('89 to '99) He now resides in Norfolk Va. He was an original member of Beggar's Tomb and continues to perform regularly in 3 Grateful Dead themed bands. In March of 2018 he started playing with Splintered Sunlight out of Philly. Splintered has been a favorite in the mid-atlantic region for many years. Patrick also performs in Virginia and North Carolina with Last Fair Deal and his own band Gettin' Weir'd (a Bob Weir Tribute).
3 years ago Patrick was diagnosed with a lung disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis. IPF is a progressive and unpredictable condition. In some it advances very slowly in others it moves quickly. There is no cure though there are various treatments for slowing the progress. Unfortunately in Pat's case, the disease has started to accelerate. He's been told that he is a good candidate for a lung transplant within the year. This is covered by insurance but there are a number of expenses and procedures leading up to this which are not covered so we are holding this fundraiser to help in deferring some of the up front costs. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, we hope you come enjoy the show with Last Fair Deal and Gettin' Weir'd. Last but not least, as we've heard Phil Lesh say many times, please consider becoming an organ donor.
