A love of the music,philosophy and spirit of the Grateful Dead was the basis of the formation of the band in 2008. We have had changes in the line up ever since we began but believe our current roster is the best since we started.

Whitney Pearsall, our lead vocalist, is one of the original members of the band. Music has been a huge part of her life. She was an entertainer at a very early age. She has been the featured vocalist in bands in Maryland and North Carolina.

Rich Saltz, one of our guitar players, is also one of the original members of the band. He draws on his love of the music of the Grateful Dead, having seen over 150 shows. Jerry Garcia's influence is easily evidenced in his playing style.

Chris O'Hara plays bass and lends his unique vocal talents to the mix. His high level enthusiasm come through his playing and his stage presence. He has been involved with many projects in the area and is currently also in the Pink Floyd Tribute band, Breathe.

Brant Kay plays keyboards and shares the lead vocal responsibilities. He is also an accomplished guitar player. He has played in bands in Virginia, California, New Mexico, and North Carolina. He grew up with the music of the Grateful Dead in his family and it continues to be a vital part of his being.

Jonas McAlarney is the band's resident "Bobby" His understanding of rhythms and counter rhythms is evident in his playing and adds color and texture to the mix. He previously played in They Are Only Mostly Dead based in Wilmington

Adam Rockwell holds the bottom together for the band. No reason to have two drummers when you have one octopus. Adam has been involved in many projects and was previously in one of our favorite band, Wide Eyed Mischief

Chrystal Dail Leonard adds another texture to the bands vocal mix. Her love for the music shines through her singing. She previously played with another local Dead tribute band, Terrapin Junction

The band's goal is not to present note by note recreations of what the Grateful Dead produced but to pay homage to the music that has affected us deeply.
