was at both those shows

Did you see me there? I was the bearded guy wearing a tie-dye.

did you ever see a picture of Mickey Hart at his Bar Mitzvah? It's in the Grateful Dead Family Album...

I know the photo you mean -- someone gave me Family Album as a gift. He's wearing a yarmulke and tallis, but my recollection is that it was a posed 'photographer's studio' shot, not at the actual bar mitzvah itself. (My mom got similar studio photos of me around the time of my bar mitzvah.)

we noticed a young Jewish guy...

That wasn't me. Even though I wasn't yet frum, I would never have said kaddish for JG because:
#1: He wasn't one of the 7 relations for whom we say kaddish (mother, father, spouse, brother, sister, son, daughter), and
#2: Kaddish requires a minyan.

I had been living in DC from 1987 to 1991, when I moved to Detroit (and became frum at the same time). I attended a few more shows in Detroit and Cleveland. I remember a guy at a Cleveland show saw my Tzitzes hanging out and said, "Hey, it's the string guy from Detroit!" I guess they must have made an impression on him.
