Rocky Mountain Grateful Dead Review is the apex of Colorado's vast cadre of uniquely talented and "Deadicated" musicians. Over the years, many regional bands have offered up their best efforts toward keeping alive the unparalleled music and party spirit of the phenomenon that was the Grateful Dead. From this cross-pollenating web of specialized tribute musicians has shaken out a pool of players deemed most apt, by popular opinion and support, to offer the truest interpretation of the essence of that legendary band.
Unlike many "put a quarter in the jukebox" tribute bands, Rocky Mountain Grateful Dead Review delivers a caliber of genuineness, spontaneity and artistic integrity by weaving their own measure of "X factor creativity" into the songs, jams and transitional interludes. Chemistry, both personal and musical, is an important ingredient of the musical high generated by RMGDR. This chemistry exists both among the band members themselves and between the band and their all-important audiences. It is a closed-loop of positive energy that feeds on itself and tends to elevate gyrating bones off the floor.
Perfect harmony with this chemistry emanates when the band is joined by their good friend from Dark Star Orchestra, Rob Eaton. The consummate Grateful Dead tribute musician, Rob is proudly presented as special guest of Rocky Mountain Grateful Dead Review at the Boulder Theater. Don't miss what is sure to be a very special evening!
