Raising The Dead had an amazing, Grateful Dead-packed weekend!
Starting Saturday morning with our monthly acoustic Grateful Brunch at the Sardine Room, Matt, Dave, Bill, and Chaim jammed their way through two psychedelic sets of music. Our buddy Jody Bauman joined us to live-paint a special piece we are donating back to the Sardine Room.
That night we had the honor of headlining the Metro Times' Sandbar Summerfest in Hazel Park We played one long set that started with Sugar magnolia and ended with Sunshine Daydream, with stops on some of the Dead's greatest tunes in between.
Sunday, we were invited to perform at the Shakedown Beet, a fundraiser for Ukranian children promoted by our buddy Nick Zabrodsky at the Green Door in Lansing. Alex enjoyed returning to a place he'd played over a hundred times, and the band was grateful for his excellent live sound engineering. We were joined by Michael Bush of Dead at the Winery, and Bill Butler best described his integration with us as "effortless." Mike will join us at our next gig, playing at Billy's Lounge in Grand Rapids on Saturday, July 1. If you're on the West side of the state, this is the gig you've been waiting for!
