Last weekend was a busy one for Raising The Dead! On Friday, we headlined the Soaring Eagle stage at Rock N Rides in Royal Oak. A ton of Deadheads came out, including lots of new fans we hadn't played for before, and we regaled them with a country-flavored jamfest. This show was the debut of two classic Dead songs, Box of Rain with it's intricate, stacked harmonies, and Tennessee Jed. We also funked a big Shakedown, and rocked out Saint of Circumstance. With a hard curfew at 10pm, Ripple was unfortunately cut short about 2/3 into the song. Maybe we will finish it this weekend at Otus!
The next night, Dave and Matt had the pleasure of playing an acoustic duet, opening for the jaw-dropping guitar work of Marcus Rezak and his amazing band, Shred is Dead. We got spacey and sang in harmony, and you can hear the show below. All in all, it was a helluva weekend for us and the Detroit Deadheads we got to play for. See you at Otus on Friday 6-25-2021 for Dave's teaching retirement show!
