The Grateful Dead could be considered one of the most prolific bands in rock history. For decades, this ragtag group of flower-powered musicians traversed the globe on a tour that ended with the death of guitarist/vocalist Jerry Garcia. The Grateful Dead could also be considered one of the forefathers of the modern jam movement.
Since the band’s demise, many groups have emerged to pay tribute to these legendary musicians. Nashville’s The Stolen Faces is the Southeast’s premiere Grateful Dead tribute bands. Many will recognize bassist Christian Grizzard from his work with The Lost Cause Minstrels. Grizzard got to experience the band twice, and he has developed a great appreciation for the group’s music.
“I’m fascinated with the classic American songbook they created, and have been fortunate to have met four other like-minded, and very skilled, musicians who have been willing to devote a lot of time and effort in to learning from it,” Grizzard said.
Local artist Angela Harley will join The Stolen Faces. Harley was last seen painting as a part of Rising Appalachia’s Rise Collective. Harley will be painting “something Dead-ish” as the band performs.
