I just want to let you know how excited I am about the upcoming debut/album release shows coming up for a project I am part of called The Latin Dead! Led by percussionist, Brenden Tacon, and featuring a "who's who" of Latin Jazz (including 4x Grammy-winning keyboardist, Oscar Hernandez) as well as Andy Vargas (Santana) helping me out on co-lead vocals, I think you will dig this mash-up of songs and styles. An album release announcement should be coming soon, and our first three debut performances are just a few weeks away!
Steely Dead is a musical hybrid of the Grateful Dead and Steely Dan. Sonic worlds collide, between the structure, arrangement and precision studio recordings of rock legends Steely Dan, cross-pollinated with the Grateful Dead’s free-flowing, melodic improvisation and masterful song segues. Steely Dead merges these major concepts together while infusing the influence unto each band. For example, taking the Grateful Dead’s rocking set ender Deal and Steely Dan’s Reelin’ In the Years creating the mashup Dealin’ in the Years.
