Dead & Company is a band consisting of former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir on guitar, Mickey Hart on drums, and Bill Kreutzmann also on drums, alongside young guns John Mayer on guitar, Oteil Burbridge playing bass guitar and drums, and Jeff Chimenti on keyboards. The stadium-packing jam rockers have had so much fun touring North America together the last few years that they're doing it again this summer for what's sure to be the funnest tour of the summer!
“The other original members of the Grateful Dead are drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, “the rhythm devils,” who have spent the last half century in a fearless Apache dance of weird experimentation and deep meditative groove. Today, they offer an authenticity and original pulse. Jeff Chimenti deftly handles keyboards — as he has in nearly all Dead-related endeavors since 1997 — while bassist Oteil Burbridge operates as a secret weapon of sorts, offering abyssal funk licks and soulful vocals, most notably on the setlist linchpin “Fire on the Mountain.” The wild card, of course, has always been John Mayer, the polarizing blues guitarist and occasional pop singer-songwriter, who deserves yeoman’s credit for partially submerging his own solo identity in service of the group. Reverently and impressively channeling Garcia’s crystal liquid guitar solos, Mayer graciously understands the band’s traditional taxonomy has been reversed. Even if the band was famously leaderless, Garcia offered a transverberating spiritual center. In his quarter century absence, Weir has transformed himself from the titanium backbone of the band to the inheritor of Garcia’s ragged mystic spirit.” – Jeff Weiss, Bilboard.
