Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Shares SBDs From Lockn’ Smokeshows

first_imgThe Grateful Dead presence was strong throughout LOCKN’ Festival, despite there only being one true member of the band on site. Joe Russo’s Almost Dead held down the Blue Ridge Bowl for two consecutive late nights, starting well-after 1AM and diving deep into the early morning hours.The five players of the group – Scott Metzger, Marco Benevento, Tom Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, and, of course, Joe Russo – have become totally synchronized in their improvisational efforts. It’s a real treat to watch this band take on the Grateful Dead catalog with their sharp musicianship and eager enthusiasm.Fortunately, we can relive these two great sets thanks to archivist Eric McRoberts:last_img
