Joe Russo's Almost Dead Tickets
Joe Russo's Almost Dead TicketsJoe Russo's Almost Dead is the nation's premier Grateful Dead tribute act. The band is known for taking the Dead's compositions and making them its own. Joe Russo was the drummer for another band performing the Dead's music called Furthur. That band had two original members of the Dead in the lineup: Bob Weir and Phil Lesh. After that band stopped touring, Russo formed Joe Russo's Almost Dead in 2013, and the band rose to almost immediate success. The band's first show was at the iconic Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, N.Y., a venue known for hosting some of the most important bands in the jam band scene.
Grateful Dead With a twistThe band is most well-known for pushing the envelope with the Grateful Dead's music. While other Grateful Dead tribute acts, of which there are many, try to stick exactly to tradition, Joe Russo's Almost Dead is known to incorporate a more progressive rock/fusion style to its music. This is a fresh take that has pleased existing Dead fans and helped to draw a new audience to the already popular music. One thing that sets the band apart is the extended solo section that Marco Benevento, the band's keyboardist, is known to take during each show. Russo and Benevento have been long-time collaborators since they formed the Benevento/Russo Duo in the early 2000s.
