Music of Jerry Garcia & The Grateful Dead
Advance tickets $20 (no longer available). $25 at the door.
Michael-Louis Smith’s “Take A Step Back” covers the music of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead and features a diverse lineup of talented musicians. Expect them to cover songs such as “That’s What Love Will Make You Do,” “Sugaree,” “Eyes of the World,” and “Fire on the Mountain.”
Smith, widely known as a jazz instrumentalist and composer, got his start as a young teenager singing the songs of Robert Hunter and Bob Dylan in places such as Caffe Lena in upstate New York. Inspired by a live performance of the band on his 14th Birthday at Madison Square Garden In 1991, he credits Garcia and the Dead among his earliest and most potent inspirations to become a musician.
He will be joined by longtime friend and collaborator Marcus John Schlegel III on keys, electric bass virtuoso Mike Roninson, and Dave Berger on drums from the band Left Ear Trio.
