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.. .
