Dead On Live returns to South Orange Performing Arts Center to present a mixed bag from every era of the Grateful Dead’s rich and stylistically diverse heritage in full production, both as heard on the band’s commercial releases and as performed live in some of their most famous shows throughout the years.
Multi-instrumentalist, touring and recording veteran, Marc Muller (Shania Twain, Tommy Shaw, Bruce Springsteen) has brought a cast of world-class musicians together to present with much “deadication,” their truly unique, note-for-note offering paying tribute to the music of the Grateful Dead. Dead On Live also remains true to The Dead’s heart and soul by featuring in every show plenty of good old Grateful jamming to get the kids to dance and shake their bones!
Dead On Live recreates 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. Grateful Dead favorites from the early psychedelic 60’s ofAnthem of the Sun, songwriting gems of Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty, the iconic “live” era recordings of Europe ‘72 to the odd metered lush productions of From the Mars Hotel, Blues for Allah and Terrapin Station.
