Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF RE­PORT

Fans of the Grate­ful Dead won’t want to miss this week­end’s show at Song­birds South, 35 Sta­tion St.

Ten­nessee’s Dead, six lo­cal mu­si­cians who play in other bands but come to­gether to re-cre­ate the mu­sic of the Grate­ful Dead, has two nights of shows in the South­side venue.

With an em­pha­sis on mod­ern jam and stylings in­fused with one of the most pro­lific mu­sic cat­a­logs in his­tory, Ten­nessee’s Dead plays like you’ve never heard the Dead be­fore.

The theme for Ten­nessee’s Dead’s up­com­ing shows is “Danc­ing Through the Decades,” so their two-night gig at Song­birds will serve as a time ma­chine. Start­ing with the mu­sic of the ’60s, they’ll take their au­di­ence through the Dead’s hey­day, con­tin­u­ing to Jerry Gar­cia’s last show.

“Ten­nessee’s Dead is made up of some of the best mu­si­cians in the area, all from dif­fer­ent bands. They com­bine their var­ied tal­ents to form a com­mon thread of fan­tas­tic mu­sic,” says Mike Dougher, Song­birds en­ter­tain­ment co­or­di­na­tor.

The band’s per­son­nel in­cludes Tyler Red­dick of Three Star Re­vival, bass and vo­cals; Jeff McS­pad­den of Masseuse and Hive The­ory, drums and vo­cals; Maria Sable of LVNDR & No Pres­sure and Dan­i­mal Planet, vo­cals; Kait­lyn Con­nor of Ma­radeen, keys and vo­cals; Tyler Martelli of Strung Like a Horse and Dan­i­mal Planet, rhythm/ lead gui­tar and vo­cals; and Davvy Glab of Shabti, lead/rhythm gui­tar and vo­cals.

“The show is so pop­u­lar, and the Dead has so much mu­sic, that two nights just seemed like the right thing to do,” says Dougher. “We will of­fer a dis­count ticket for those who want to come to both shows. The set lists will be dif­fer­ent, so each show will be unique.”
