Dead on Live — Celebrating 50 Years of the Grateful Dead

  • Tarrytown Music Hall 13 Main Street Tarrytown, NY 10591 (map)


The Grateful Dead turn 50 in 2015. Dead On Live pays tribute to this milestone by presenting the music of the Dead’s rich and stylistically diverse heritage in full production, both as heard on the classic commercial releases and as performed live in some of their most famous shows throughout the years. You’ll hear Phil’s rootless syncopation’s, the rhythmic juggernaut of Kreutzmann and Hart, the heart and soul of Pigpen, Bob and Keith’s comping, and the touch and tone of Jerry Garcia. Dead favorites from the early psychedelic 60’s of Anthem of the Sun, songwriting gems of Workingman’s/Beauty, the iconic “live” era recordings of Europe 72 to the odd metered lush productions of Mars Hotel, Blues for Allah and Terrapin. Based on their unique approach of recreating, literally note for note, all instruments as well as the lush and complex vocal harmonies as heard on classic recordings of the 60’s, 70’s and beyond, Dead On Live, led by touring and recording veteran Marc Muller (Shania Twain, Bruce Springsteen, Disney) have quickly become recognized nationally as one of the top acts to pay tribute to the music of the American treasure known as the Grateful Dead.
