Raising The Dead returns for our acoustic residency at The Sardine Room on Saturday, July 29 from 11a-2p. This month, Bill, Chaim, and Dave will be joined by our friend-with-benefits (the rock and roll kind) Justin Lee on both keys and guitar! Reservations are encouraged. This will be the first opportunity to get your hands on RTD T-shirts, just $20 in sizes M-2XL, while they last. See you there!

Dave grew up in Grand Rapids, specifically Plainfield Township where he attended Northview High School. He spent countless evenings in college and after at Billy's Lounge seeing Karmic, Domestic Problems, Knee Deep Shag, and more recently The Soul Syndicate. It was a thrill for him to return there to take the stage with his band for an evening with Raising The Dead.
Being a holiday weekend, the crowd of 70+ was fewer than expected, but those that came, came HARD. More than one fan relayed that GR needs a GD band! Happily filling that Dead-shaped gap, RTD matched and fed off their energy for a fantastic performance. We were joined again by Dead at the Winery's Michael Bush, who let us with expertise and energy, and our friend Jody Bauman, who live painted to the audience's delight. See for yourself below!
