DeadAndCompanyLogoFeatured3The 38th installment of the Day-Glo DeadTest™ collection dives into the sound of the hottest Grateful Dead splinter band (for lack of a better term) on tour. Dead & Company joins an elite group of bands – including The Other Ones (1998), The Dead (2003) and Furthur (2009) – that has, at some point, dominated the touring scene for Heads, young and old.

The band consists of former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir (vocals, guitar), Mickey Hart (drums) and Bill Kreutzmann (drums). John Mayer plays lead guitar and sings, Oteil Burbridge is on bass (and sometimes sings) and Jeff Chimenti is on keys.

Good luck passing this one. If you’re used to hearing Jerry playing lead, Dead & Company will take you out of your comfort zone.
