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
