The Golden Road

Playing the Dead’s classic music with a contemporary sound, energy and enthusiasm is the band’s mission, using each song as the foundation for new experimentation and interpretation. Each show has a unique theme– like playing a Dead album in it’s entirety, commemorating landmark dates, shows or holidays, or inviting special guest musicians to join the band. With a new set list for every show, and a mind blowing version of Drums and Space, you never know what’s around the next turn on The Golden Road.
