The music of The Grateful Dead transcends time, age and space. Their high energy, soul touching jams and family like environment was a core part of the counter-culture experience. Over the past 16 years Dead Sessions has grown to become one of the favorite Grateful Dead experiences in the Northeast. Playing since 1998, the collective is known for their authentic but unique renditions of Grateful Dead classics, thick with heartfelt jams that make the most jaded Deadhead rejoice. Dead Sessions is composed of a rotating cast of musicians throughout the country, but the roots of origin are easily traced to the Green Mountain State. With an unmasked joy that pours off the stage and blurs any boundaries with their audience, the Sessions are beloved from both the casual fan to the dedicated Terrapin warrior. Dead Sessions have included members of Trey Anastasio Band, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Grippo Funk Band, Assembly of Dust, Raq, Gordon Stone, Doug Perkins, Turkey Bouillon Mafia, Seth Yacovone Band, Liquid Dead and more. Special guests have ranged from your neighbor “down the farm” to Mike Gordon of Phish
