Dead On Live’s “Livin the Good Life” 4/20 show. Bergen PAC Englewood NJ

Based on their unique approach of recreating, literally note for note, all instruments as
well as the lush and complex vocal harmonies as heard on classic recordings of the 70’s, Dead On Live has quickly become recognized nationally as one of the top acts to pay tribute to the music of the American treasure known as the Grateful Dead.
Dead On Live shows have featured specific records of specific eras, performing
“Workingman’s Dead” and “American Beauty” in their entirety, the 71-72 era with songs from “Skull and Roses” and the iconic “Europe 72”, as well as their 73-74 show with selections from “Wake Of The Flood” and “Mars Hotel”.

For the band’s return to Bergen PAC, DOL is happy to offer a special 4/20 “Livin The
Good Life” show featuring a cross section of favorites from the Dead’s extensive catalog. Songs such as “High Time”, “St. Stephen”, “Easy Wind”, “The Wheel”, “China Cat Sunflower/I Know You Rider” (In it’s entirety!), “Scarlet Begonias” and “Mississippi
Halfstep” will be performed as they were recorded and released, all instruments and
vocals.

Multi-instrumentalist, touring and recording veteran, Marc Muller (Shania Twain,
Tommy Shaw, Bruce Springsteen) has assembled a cast of world class musicians
featuring John Merjave (The Weeklings), drummer Lee Finkelstein (Timberwolf,
Original Blues Brothers) John Pittas, Paul Avrutin tackling the rootless syncopation of
Phil’s bass, and perhaps one of the best Pigpen inspired vocalists/harpists on the scene today, Sandy Mack. Special guests are sure to be stopping by to join in the fun, as there’s always lots of good old, Dead-inspired jamming to be had in every show. With much “deadication” these musicians come together to present their truly unique, note-for-note offering, performing the music of the Dead, absolutely “Dead On – live”!
