Totally Dead began when seven musicians and friends decided it would be fun to play a Grateful Dead show from the classic spring 1977 tour. They gave it a go and discovered not only that they had a blast, but the audience loved it too. Though the band grew from Grateful Dead set lists, over time they discovered the joy of creating their own original set lists. They try to incorporate songs from the late ’60s all the way up to the mid-’90s.
Totally Dead is Ned Patchett and Matt Salata on guitar and vocals, Dave Gantenbein on bass, Jaime Cintado on keyboards and vocals, Eileen Flynn Bell on vocals, and Mo Sardella and Will McCosker on drums and vocals.
