Dead On Live will be performing their latest note-for-note recreation of the music of the 'Dead.'
Dead On Live's new show recently debuted to a packed house of fans dancing in the aisles at the Count Basie Theater and now will perform at The Chunk Opera House.
This show features the Mickey Hart, double drumming eras of the Dead's diverse recording career. DOL tackles the acid-drenched syncopations of "Anthem of the Sun" with songs like "The Other One", Born Cross Eyed and Pigpen favorite, "Alligator".
The second set is unplugged and unleashes the impossible to recreate "Help On The Way/ Slipknot/Franklin's Tower" and continues with all the upbeat and danceable hits through to "In The Dark", the band's final studio release.
AJ and Kelli are known for their rich and silky vocals, these powerful songwriters cross genres from acoustic-folk to edgier and darker indie-pop.
