Fresh on the heels of a four-set appearance at last weekend’s Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe IL, NY jam sensations Organ Fairchild announce a special themed ten-date summer tour featuring one set of the band’s award-winning original instrumental music followed by a full set of Grateful Dead songs performed funky organ-trio style.

The “Dead of Summer” Tour coincides with “The Days Between” (Jerry Garcia’s birth and death dates) when legions of Grateful Dead fans will be celebrating this music. Tour dates are:

July 28  The 8x10 Club, Baltimore MD
July 29  Beau’s Bar, Greenlawn NY
July 30  Weekend at Bertha’s Festival, Townsend DE
July 31  The Nest House Concerts, Ironia NJ
August 1  Lark Hall, Albany NY (Jerry Garcia’s birthday!)
August 2  ZenBarn, Waterbury Center VT
August 3  Orlando’s, Burlington VT
August 4  TBA
August 5  Bear’s Picnic Festival, Blain PA
August 6  Electric Haze, Worcester MA

Band guitarist Dave Ruch said, “Long before we wrote our first material as Organ Fairchild, the three of us grew up playing in Grateful Dead bands together.” He continued, “It’s been so much fun to take the parameters of our new organ trio format (no singing and no bass player!) and revisit some of our favorites Dead tunes. Fresh and funky is how it’s feeling, and the setlists will be unique each night!”

All ticketed shows go on sale Monday, June 5, 10am at
