Where to See Joe Russo’s Almost Dead in 2021 and 2022
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has several performances in October and more coming up in spring 2022! You can next see the group on October 22nd in Los Angeles, CA, with dates continuing sporadically through March 2022.
The quintet has been performing since May, giving fans of the Grateful Dead cover band a summer they’ll never forget! Fan engagement is essential for any artist, but especially Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. The jam band brings their fans center stage (even sometimes literally!) with their jam band culture in a way that differentiates them from even their namesake.
While Grateful Dead was one of the best jam bands of all time that set the stage for many others after them, like Phish and Dave Matthews Band… Joe Russo’s Almost Dead tries to put their spin on these rock covers. The group comprises veteran musicians like Joe Russo of Furthur and Dave Dreiwitz of Ween, who infuse their own musical style into their passion for playing Grateful Dead’s biggest hits.
“Anyone who has seen or heard the Grateful Dead-inspired quintet knows that the ensemble goes far beyond the simple chord progressions of the jam forefathers,” Live For Live Music wrote about Joe Russo’s Almost Dead in September. “Rather than acting as a band playing Grateful Dead covers that evolve into jams, JRAD freely improvises until those off-the-cuff musical journeys take the form of a familiar Dead tune.”
In other words, you can still expect to hear covers of “Touch of Grey,” “Playing in the Band,” “Truckin’,” and “Friend of the Devil” at your Joe Russo’s Almost Dead concert… but in a unique form. With Dead & Company currently on tour and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead not far behind, 2021 is the year of Grateful Dead revivals – and we’re enjoying every second!
