Raising the Dead is excited to return to Grand Rapids and debut in Lansing this summer! On May 21st, we will perform as an acoustic quintet at Mac's Bar from 4-7pm. This will be a benefit for Ukraine, raising money to buy an ambulance. Thanks to Nick Zabrosky for being our promoter for the event.

RTD had their Grand Rapids debut last in January playing for the Griffins Grateful Dead night at the Van Andel Arena. We return to the Furniture City at BIlly's, a legendary East Town bar, on Saturday, July 1 with a $10 cover charge. We hope to see y'all there!

On Friday, April 7 2023, the Raising The Dead Acoustic Trio appeared on Grosse Ile, Michigan to lay some heady Dead on an appreciative crowd of Islanders and Mainlanders. The Lenten fish fry was an exceptionally well run operation, the count for the night was 780 people served! Cod, perch, crab cakes, fries, slaw, pizza, incredible desserts, a full bar, all run by volunteers. Since Dave is the choir director at Grosse Ile Presbyterian Church, he saw lots of friends who came out to support us and eat.
And the show was just fantastic! By the end of the night, we had earned accolades including "the best band we ever had at the fish fry." Stalwart fans Bill Morgan, Michael Chojnoski, and Nick Zabrodsky came out to join us, and we met new fans Faith and Ziggy who were super enthusiastic about our group. Here's the setlist:
4-7-2023 Sacred Heart Church, Grosse Ile, MI
I: U.S. Blues, Uncle John's Band, El Paso, Brown Eyed Women, Me & Bobby McGee > Bird Song, Scarlet Begonias > Fire on the Mountain
II: Touch of Gray, Truckin > Liberty, They Love Each Other, My Sisters and Brothers, Eyes of the World, Gomorrah > A Little Help From My Friends, Box of Rain, Bertha
Bill Butler, Matthew Cole, and Dave Martin will perform as the RTD Acoustic Trio at a Good Friday fish fry on Grosse Ile on April 7 from 4-7. Meal prices range from $13-18. Join us for great food and Grateful Dead!
