Live Dead ’69 is a new supergroup that’s already done a couple of tours and will be on the circuit this summer. This edition of the band included half of Ratdog – Mark Karan on guitar, Robin Sylvester on bass, and Jay Lane on drums. Also on board are former Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten and guitarist Slick Aguilar, who was part of the late Paul Kantner’s Starship lineup for many years.

Support for the Grateful Dead Hour comes this week from The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York.

With the killer laser light show that they are known for, The Cap will be ready to blast off into outer-space. Events, information, and ticketing at thecapitoltheatre.com.
