Long Strange Deal brings the jams! Period! This is not the traditional Jerry/Bobby style Grateful Dead tribute. LSD has gathered some of the best Dead players from the Charlotte area, including members of bands such as Other People, Liquid Sound, Brokedown Palace, Whiskey Prophets, MFT, to form a tribute that is reminiscent of some of our favorite eras of the Grateful Dead and JGB all mixed into one show!! Three lead players fill up the room swapping solos of collective styles ranging from some of the best eras of the Dead with Mike on guitar and vocals pouring his late 60’s thru the Mid-70’s super clean, bluesy tones into the songs, Cito Giulini with Jerry licks for days and the tones from late 70’s through the 80’s, with great harmony, backing, and lead vocals to boot, Russ Betenbaugh on Keys and vocals gives a nod to all of the great keyboard players that played beside Jerry whether it’s Brent, Nicky Hopkins, or Melvins Seals; and a solid rhythm section including “Thunder” Dan Ihle dropping Phil lines, and Maz Sietsma on drums filling some of both parts in one! Bethany Sietsma, on backing vocals, adds to the JGB sound and is a bonus on the Dead set too!
