The music of the Grateful Dead is relatively new to me. While I am still not a “real” Dead-Head I have a new found respect for the material, the songwriting, and for their unique approach to performing music which was so very groundbreaking fifty years ago. The Grateful Dead are an American icon who have withstood the test of time. This is very apparent when we play for such appreciative audiences with members young and old. It has been a real learning experience and so much fun “Playin’ In the Band”.”
