Dirty Dead is a Grateful Dead / Jerry Garcia Band tribute band from Asheville, NC. The group creates fresh, new versions of the classic Dead tunes. Bringing in funk, reggae, hard rock, country, jazz flute and almost anything new and different, DD causes a ruckus with their new sound.
Yet their roots to the music that Jerry and the Dead fostered is palpable. Dirty Dead’s performances strive for the same energy of improvisation to ‘bring out their dead’ vibe.
The band is becoming known for its open, GD family vibe. They frequently welcome awesome talent to the stage to join the band for their epic sets. Since their first performance in September of 2016, the group has built a strong following.
