50 years ago the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers shared the bill for 6 shows on Feb. 11, 13 and 14, 1970. Cowboys Dead and All Night Train are joining forces to commemorate these great shows and pay homage to two of the greatest bands ever to perform at the Fillmore East. Each band will play a set and then join up on stage for a psychedelic jam you won't want to miss!

Even Cowboys Get the Blues

Old Town Square, Fort Collins

Yes, it's true. Just like Clark Kent, we have an alter-ego - the Dave Dardine Project! Raw, tasty and definitely not your typical blues...

Beyond Cowboy, beyond the Dead 

When we chose the bands name 5 or 6 years ago, we wanted to differentiate ourselves from other Dead bands out there who play mostly the "newer" Grateful Dead of the late 80's, early 90's.  Our interest and passion was, and still is, the early 70s era,  of Workingman's Dead and American Beauty. Over time, we've expanded on that sound, and introduce today's Deadheads to music they might not be familiar with. That's why, when you come to one of our shows, you'll hear some of the more bluesy Dead material like Smokestack Lightning and It Hurts Me Too, Alligator, the Rub, Mr. Charlie.. .
