Joe Russo’s Almost Dead kicked off their three night run at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ last Thursday to a packed house on a warm fall evening. This run was rescheduled from just over a year ago as a result of the covid-19 pandemic. Despite an injury to Tom Hamilton, the band delivered their unique take on the Grateful Dead without a hitch and made many new fans in the process.
The Jersey Shore musical group has been recording albums since 1976 and is closely associated with the biggest New Jersey rock musicians – including Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band and Jon Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi introduced the group into the New Jersey Hall of Fame late last year, while Springsteen appeared on the band’s 1991 album, “Better Days.” In fact, more than one hundred musicians can claim to have been members of the Asbury Jukes. Now, the band is set to bring its unique “shore sound” to rock the halls of New Jersey’s premier live entertainment venue, the Wellmont Theater.
