Don't miss this truly unique, note-for-note presentation by Dead On as they pay tribute to this wonderful era in the Grateful Dead’s diverse and beloved history by performing Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty in their entirety!
In just 9 months of 1970, the Grateful Dead recorded and released their 4th and 5th studio albums, Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty. Featuring 18 songs like “Uncle John’s Band,” “Casey Jones” “Box of Rain,” “Friend of the Devil,” “Sugar Magnolia,” “Ripple,” “Brokedown Palace,” and “Truckin’,” they fused rock, blues, bluegrass, folk and especially country music, changing the direction of the band, and popular music overall away from psychedelia toward a traditional acoustic sound.
Touring and recording veteran multi instrumentalist Marc Muller (Shania Twain, Bruce Springsteen, Tommy Shaw) directs a Note For Note celebration capturing this important and beloved period in the Grateful Dead’s long and illustrious, and stylistically diverse career. He has assembled an impressive cast of world class musicians that have been able to reproduce virtually every note of every instrument, as well as all of the beautifully orchestrated vocal arrangements that are a trademark of these 2 American classics, to a level that’s perhaps never been accomplished and performed live in concert before.
