Joe Russo's Almost Dead
There's no other band who celebrates the music of the Grateful Dead quite like JRAD. They're upbeat, with an unconventional set flow that will steal your face right off of your head.
Formed by Furthur and Benevento/Russo Duo drummer Joe Russo in 2013, the band also features Ween bassist Dave Dreiwitz; Benevento/Russo Duo keyboardist Marco Benevento; Tom Hamilton of Brothers Past, Ghost Light, and American Babies on guitar and vocals; and Scott Metzger on guitar and vocals (who has toured with artists like John Mayer, John Scofield, Warren Haynes, Nels Cline, Anders Osborne, Phil Lesh, Shooter Jennings, LaLa Brooks of the Crystals, and many more).
This is the first Vermont performance by JRAD since a summer 2019 show on the Burlington Waterfront which Russo had to skip to welcome the unexpected early birth of his daughter.
Also, if you're in the area, the FREE 19th Annual August West Festival is happening the day before, on August 12th, right down the road. This whole weekend shaped up to be mighty fine, now, didn't it?
