Dead to the Core
Dead to the Core is a collective of singer-songwriters and acoustic musicians, led by musician/author Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers, with a shared love of the Grateful Dead. In intimate concerts, the musicians celebrate the band's music not through note-for-note re-creations but by playing the songs their own wayletting them grow and evolve collaboratively in the true spirit of the Dead.
Interspersed with the music are clips from Rodgers own interviews with Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir, in which they reflect on the roots and evolution of the music.
A Dead to the Core show is an experience unlike any other Grateful Dead tribute: a night of deeply personal performances that illuminate the masterful song craft of one of America's most original bands. Grateful Dead music right down to the core.
Rodgers doesnt tap the legion of dedicated Grateful Dead tribute artists for these concerts. Instead, he seeks out songwriters and musicians who have developed their own voices and styles, though they are very much inspired byand fans ofGarcia and the Dead.Arts Fuse
