Live Dead ‘69
Live Dead ‘69
LIVE DEAD ‘69 perform the classic Live Dead (recorded in 1969) in its entirety for a laudable achievement unto itself. Moreover, they are the only touring entity that applies the Grateful Dead's classic zeitgeist of extemporization and interpretive improvisation beyond an ever expanding repertoire, much of which is created entirely in the moment– without rehearsal or traditional preparation.The players unique history & pedigree offers a familiarity with Grateful Dead's halcyon material, and by their association - implies an improvisational prowess beyond merely playing the songbook or re-creating old Grateful Dead shows. Live Dead 69 is rather sampling philosophy, technique & approach for interpretation ... and they're on to something!

Tom Constanten, original Grateful Dead pianist who played all the keyboards on the Live Dead recording, inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and was essential to Grateful Dead's first ambitious/ experimental studio recordings Anthem of The Sun and Aoxomoxoa, and tours.
