Article Contributed by gratefulweb | Published on Thursday, September 21, 2023

High Time, the Brooklyn-based rock quintet announced their upcoming fall residency at New York's iconic Brooklyn Bowl, presented by Relix. The group’s two-set performances reimagine the Grateful Dead’s early catalog and will be enhanced by a live liquid light show by Macrodose. High Time will bring back the classic Sunday-show tradition on October 22, November 19, and December 17, giving audiences a visceral musical experience with a tie-dyed and familiar flavor. To support Sundays at the Brooklyn Bowl, High Time is performing four additional shows in Philadelphia, PA; Kingston, NY; Lake Como, NJ; and Hamden, CT.

Tickets are available at, and show-by-show at the links below.

High Time is beloved by music lovers and Deadheads for their transformative genre-bending interpretations of the Grateful Dead’s earliest underground performances and their relentless approach to taking on the Dead’s more extended, experimental jams. Adding to the psychedelic and nostalgic experience, the shows at the Brooklyn Bowl will feature a light show from Macrodose, using 1960s techniques updated with modern tools to create one-of-a-kind live visuals during the show.

High Time’s lineup includes founding members Adam Kriney (drums/vocals), Michael O’Neill (rhythm guitar/vocals), and Kevin Uehlinger (keys/vocals), with Pete Tonti (lead guitar/vocals) and James Preston (bass/vocals).

Formed in 2017 as a successor to New York City’s “Dead Tape” (2010-2013), which featured Kriney and Uehlinger, High Time’s inaugural run of shows was met by packed houses at the beloved Union Pool. Through a year-long residency, the band formed a new chemistry and developed a dedicated fanbase while fearlessly exploring the wild and weirder side of the Grateful Dead’s concert experience.

“We’re a group that grew up simultaneously listening to Miles Davis, Sonic Youth, Pink Floyd and Motörhead,” says O’Neill. “Channeling the Grateful Dead’s improvisational spirit, we use their music as a jam vehicle to combine all of these influences and create a sound that is uniquely our own while still maintaining the songbook and traditions of the Dead themselves.”
