Hollywood, CA (Jan. 17, 2019) — LIVE DEAD ‘69 has announced special 2019 shows celebrating The 50th Anniversary of the original WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL. The band features original Grateful Dead pianist TOM CONSTANTEN who was part of the original 95 min. set there, Aug. 16, 1969. Tom Constanten, original Grateful Dead pianist who played all the keyboards on the “Live Dead” recording, inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and was essential to Grateful Dead’s first ambitious/ experimental studio recordings “Anthem of The Sun” and “Aoxomoxoa,” and tours. LIVE DEAD ‘69 has acquired a stellar, heady reputation, first performing the classic “Live Dead” (recorded in 1969) in its entirety; then, applying Grateful Dead’s zeitgeist of extemporization and interpretive improvisation beyond an ever expanding repertoire, much of which is created entirely ‘in the moment’ – without rehearsal or traditional ‘preparation.’ They will perform and elaborate upon, Grateful Dead’s Woodstock set.
