Joe Russo Almost Dead, aka JRAD. This band is nothing short of Grateful Dead king of bands Genuine world’s greatest band shirt with fresh takes on the songs performed by gifted musicians on all instruments. Joe’s drumming is simply jaw-dropping. Marco’s keyboards are unique and often rise to new and unexpected heights.
The different styles of Grateful Dead king of bands Genuine world’s greatest band shirt Tom and Scott make no attempt to copy Jerry or Bobby’s playing yet capture the heart of the songs and like Marco can go in any number of directions. Bassist Dave can really lay it down with a healthy respect for Phil without trying to be Phil, How could anyone be Phil or Jerry? I absolutely love this band. The most delicious surprise to me is Marco’s keyboard playing. There are other bands that have DNA that you can trace to the Dead. One great band is Umphrey’s McGee. They don’t play only Dead songs and they have evolved into their own thing. But these guys are great and you are likely to be rewarded with a Dead cover. Or hard rock, or funk, or whatever. IMO Jake Cinninger is a guy who knows how to light up the night with his guitar. Not really a Dead cover band though. Dark Star Orchestra. I do like these guys. But for some reason, I haven’t really bonded with them the way I did with the Grateful Dead when Jerry was alive, or D&C today, or JRAD. They are undoubtedly fantastic players. They do a faithful reproduction of the music and shows. They crowd is given a fairly authentic experience. But for me there’s some kind of emotional spark that’s missing.
