Billy Strings Revisits Legendary Grateful Dead Run

Article Contributed by Rex Foundation | Published on Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Six nights of musical improvisation from Billy Strings start tomorrow, streaming live from the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY.

It is no coincidence that these dates coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead’s legendary 6-night run at The Cap in 1971. With a nod to those historic shows, Billy Strings will perform “The Deja Vu Experiment,” in which the band hopes to tap into the musicianship and fearlessness that the Grateful Dead did 50 years ago, unlocking improvisational boundaries of music and psychedelia in a familiar yet unique way. 

These shows will raise funds for Backline Care and the Rex Foundation. 

February 18th and 24th are FREE on the Relix Twitch channel.
