    THE GRATEFUL SHRED
    ROCK

    AS LOS ANGELES’ PREMIER GRATEFUL DEAD COVER BAND, GRATEFUL SHRED WERE BORN IN

    A DESERT AND RAISED IN A LION’S DEN. BASED ON THE EAST SIDE, THE SHRED OPERATE

    FROM THE LIBERTY HAIR FARM COMPOUND, ECHO PARK’S VERY OWN HAIGHT

    ASHBURY.

    GRATEFUL SHRED SHOWS ARE BUILT ON A FOUNDATION OF THE COUNTRY

    AMERICANA CLASSICS

    OF THE EARLY SEVENTIES, BUT REVERENTLY COVER THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE DEAD. IN EVERY

    SHOW, THE SHRED SHINE IN THEIR COMMITMENT TO SINGING; THEIR THREE

    PART HARMONIES

    GIVE A N

    EW WARMTH AND DEPTH TO THE FAMILIAR SOUND. THE BAND’S SETS WEAVE

    TOGETHER SONGS FROM DIFFERENT ERAS IN WAYS THAT SURPRISE YET FEEL TRUE TO THE SPIRIT

    OF LIVE DEAD. WHILE PERFORMING FRESH

    BUT

    FAITHFUL INTERPRETATIONS OF THESE BELOVED

    SONGS, GRATEFUL SHRED H

    OLD THEIR OWN IN JAMS AND EXPLORATIONS, TESTING THE LIMITS

    OF THOSE SAME TUNES.

    THE GRATEFUL SHRED LINEUP INCLUDES A CORE FOUR SUPPORTED BY A ROTATION OF

    SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA’S HOTTEST SESSION PLAYERS. THE PERMANENT SHREDDERS ARE:
