Lovin’ Dead

What does Lovin’ Dead have that other Dead tribute bands don’t? For starters, they have Bobby incarnate with Zach Jones on rhythm guitar and vocals. Were you here when he joined Band Beyond Description in March for the 1984 tribute? It’s downright uncanny how much he captures the sound and the vibe of a young Bobby. There are very few people on the planet who can do that.

This Sonoma band is locked and loaded with a lifelong passion for the Dead which pours out in their incredible musicianship. Guitarist Jay Wilcox has that X-factor; channeling the spirit of Jerry while putting his own stamp on the sound. Jeff Quigley is the perfect counterpoint on keys, bringing forth the essence of all the eras of the Dead into a seamless symphony. These two were seeing the boys together in the late 80s so there’s an extra authenticity in their connection when summoning magic from the ethers.

When Phil was on, the band was on. Ajeet Campbell understands his role in driving the groove on bass and keeping the dance floor aflame. He’s got that bounce and jazzy freelancing flair; The ideal balance between complexity and simplicity. We’re very excited to report that Mr. Band Beyond Description himself, Gary Campus, will be anchoring the rhythms behind the drum kit. There’s no one more enthusiastic than Gary in pouring his heart into this music and preparing to improvise. We can’t wait to see what these cats have cooked up for us this time around!
