Joe Rut and Dave Jess wanted to play some Dead music. Right around the time we started talking about it, the amazing Joshua Raoul Brody said he’d like to do more of this sort of conversational improvisation. Joe brought Andrew Griffin into the discussion, and here we are! Four of us (with Bob Bralove) played “Dark Star-> Keep Your Day Job-> Dark Star” at this summer’s Very Jerry benefit at the Ashkenaz (watch our performance here), and the current quintet had a great gig at Winery Sixteen 600 in Sonoma last month (watch it here). So here we are! Let us entertain you!
