Dead on Live
After the success of their first offering, Workingman’s Dead/American Beauty, Dead on Live returns to the Berklee Performance Center with their next note-for-note recreation of classic Grateful Dead recordings. This evening will feature music from the beloved live era of 1971-1972. This show will feature favorites from Skull and Roses; Jerry’s first solo effort, Garcia; the classic and revered Europe 72; and more from Bob Weir’s first solo effort, Ace. Songs such as “Wharf Rat,” “The Wheel,” “China Cat Sunflower/I Know You Rider” (in it’s entirety), “Mexicali Blues,” and “One More Saturday Night” will be authentically performed as they were recorded.
Multi-instrumentalist and touring and recording veteran Marc Muller (Shania Twain, Tommy Shaw, Bruce Springsteen) has assembled a cast of world-class musicians, this time featuring former Zen Trickster Bob Weir, “Ace” Tom Circosta, drummer Joe Chirco (Donna Jean, David Nelson), John Pittas, Carl Gentry, Paul Avrutin, and perhaps one of the best Pigpen-inspired harpists, Sandy Mack. With much “deadication” they come together to present their truly unique tribute to an American institution, the Grateful Dead, performed absolutely “Dead on – live”!
