Raising The Dead had an awesome weekend kicking off the Days Between, performing a ton of live Grateful Dead for appreciative audiences at Hippies At The Village in Burton, MI (our 3rd year) and at Grosse Pointe Park’s Cabbage Patch Saloon (our first time). It is our practice to not repeat songs on consecutive gigs, but while we debuted no less than eleven songs this weekend, one we played twice: the fabled Terrapin Suite.
Our drummer, Joseph Waldecker worked for a solid month, practicing the extremely difficult drum parts (it took Mickey and Billy to do the album, he did it by himself!) and he also researched if any other Dead band had ever played it in Michigan before. As far as we could tell, The Grateful Dead, Further, The Dead, Phil and Friends, Dead and Company, Ratdog, Dark Star Orchestra, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, local bands Dead Again, Deadicated, Dead at the Winery, Supercrunch… Nobody has ever performed the full Terrapin Suite in Michigan before! So, we had to give it a shot. And another!
The results are here for you to see, and we are as thrilled as the audience who was there to witness it. And now, you can also enjoy our performance from the Cabbage Patch. More audio and video to come soon!
Had a great time at Hippies at The Village today. Hope you all had as much fun as we did!
