Jam band Joe Russo's Almost Dead (JRAD) first played together in 2013 and has built up a reputation as one of the best Grateful Dead cover bands out there. Started by Further drummer Joe Russo, the group also consists of Scott Metzger, Tommy Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, and Marco Benevento. With each bandmate bringing experience and talent to the group, "JRAD has all the makings of a great band, who just so happen to be a cover band, an all-star jam lineup full of history, chemistry, and personal flair" (AXS).
Through numerous live performances across the country, JRAD has performed with the likes of John Mayer, Jeff Chimenti, Oteil Burbridge, and Phil Lesh himself. Each live performance is unique and the group brings "a level of both unexpected improvisation and excitement for these new takes on the classic 300+ songbook we have come to know and love" (Chicago Now).
