Artist Bio

Live Dead & Riders ’69 has announced special August shows celebrating Jerry Garcia’s Birthday ‘week’ which has grown to be a ‘National Holiday’ of sorts for Deadheads, since the guitarist’s passing in 1995. Fresh off their triumphant runs in the U.S. & United Kingdom in Jan. & Feb., the band plays West Coast shows in June before heading back East in August.
Comprised of:
Tom Constanten, original Grateful Dead pianist who played all the keyboards on the “Live Dead” recording, inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and was essential to Grateful Dead’s first ambitious/experimental studio recordings “Anthem of The Sun” and “Aoxomoxoa,” and tours.
Mark Karan, lead guitarist with Bob Weir’s Rat Dog and The Other Ones.
Slick Aguilar who played lead guitar in Jefferson Starship & KBC for 26 years and with David Crosby Band before that.
Robin Sylvester, bassist with Bob Weir’s Rat Dog
Mike Falzarano, guitarist vocalist with The New Riders of The Purple Sage for 15 years and Hot Tuna before that.
Joe Chirco, drummer with Bob Weir, John Kadlecilk Band
Live Dead ’69 perform the classic “Live Dead” (1969) and “Skull & Roses” (1971) in their entirety, a laudable achievement unto itself applying Grateful Dead’s zeitgeist of extemporization and interpretive improvisation beyond an ever expanding repertoire, much of which is created entirely ‘in the moment’ – without rehearsal or traditional ‘preparation’. Longtime, New Riders front man & Hot Tuna member Mike Falzarano, also leads the ensemble through a set reprising the hits and deep cuts of the New Riders, a band that grew out of Grateful Dead’s 1969 Fillmore era, join them.
