Grateful Shred
As Los Angeles’ premier Grateful Dead cover band, Grateful Shred were born in
a desert and raised in a lion’s den. Based on the East Side, The Shred operate
from the Liberty Hair Farm compound, Echo Park’s very own Haight-Ashbury.
Grateful Shred shows are built on a foundation of the country-Americana classics
of the early seventies, but reverently cover the entire history of the Dead. In every
show, The Shred shine in their commitment to singing; their three-part harmonies
give a new warmth and depth to the familiar sound. The band’s sets weave
together songs from different eras in ways that surprise yet feel true to the spirit
of live Dead. While performing fresh-but-faithful interpretations of these beloved
songs, Grateful Shred hold their own in jams and explorations, testing the limits
of those same tunes.
The Grateful Shred lineup includes a core four supported by a rotation of
Southern California’s hottest session players. The permanent shredders are:
bassist extraordinaire and Echo Park legend Dan Horne (Circles Around The
Sun, Jonathan Wilson, Cass McCombs), vocalist-guitarist, emerging artist, and
country music disciple Austin McCutchen (The Western Stars, The Velvet
Bonebreakers, The White Bark Pine), and guitar rippers Sam Blasucci (Mapache,
Yam Clap) and Clay Finch (Mapache). These integral jammers are joined by
virtuosos including: Richard Gowen (The Growlers, Jonathan Wilson, Vetiver),
Jerry Borge (Ziggy Marley, The Gimme 5’s), Lee Pardini (Dawes), Mark Stepro
(Butch Walker, Ulysses S. Grant, Ben Kweller), Dusty Ineman (Omar Velasco &
The Mother Tongues), and Austin Beade (Alberta Cross, Omar Velasco). It’s a
tight and grateful family of whoever’s playing in the band that night.
