About Cosmic Charlie:
Cosmic Charlie gives you everything you are looking for a "Live Dead" experience. Two drummers, exciting improvisatory interplay between the band members, stellar song selection. Come enjoy the music of the Grateful Dead played with vim, vigor, and dead-ication! The band has performed over 300 shows at theatres, clubs and festivals across the contiental USA. From Oregon to Colorado to Ohio to the Carolinas, Cosmic Charlie's unique take on the Dead has garnered the attention of luminaries from the Grateful Dead extended family.
Some who have joined Cosmic Charlie on stage include:
-Grateful Dead keyboardist Vince Welnick
-Ratdog/Other Ones guitarist Mark Karan
-Grateful Dead archivist/radio guru David Gans
-Ratdog bass player Robin Sylevester
-Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten

(As you may recall, Cosmic Charlie was also on stage for Boone Saloon's most incendiary night of live music ever, when fire erupted behind the stage during one of the band's sets. It should be noted that the band has returned several time since and has managed not to burn the place down.)
