Dead On Live returns to where it all started 10 years ago, the historic Count Basie Center for the Arts, with an all new Allstar American Beauty show will be performing these classic Dead albums in a freer, looser, more interpretive style. Rather than having the band play the songs, they’re letting the songs play the band!

Creative force behind Dead On Live, Marc Muller, recently featured in Bruce Springsteen’s Western Stars project, has put together a stellar cast of veteran NYC musicians with Jeff Kazee (Southside Johnny) on keyboards, Jack Petruzzelle (Joan Osborne, Fab Faux) guitar, Lincoln Schliefer (Levon Helm, Warren Haynes) on bass and one of the finest drummers on the jamband scene today John Morgan Kimock. Plenty of good old Grateful Jamming on this classic material, as well as some other Dead favs with some old friends joining in the fun.

10 years ago, touring/recording veteran Marc Muller assembled a cast of world-class musicians to present these two iconic Grateful Dead records. He chose to perform the music in a totally unique, never done before, note for note all instruments and vocals as recorded production, thus launching his Dead On Live project. Since then DOL has broken all the rules in Grateful Dead tributes and recreated virtually all of the Dead’s commercial releases, as well as some of their more notorious live productions, note for note……Dead On…….Live!

Presented by Count Basie Center for the Arts
