Bandshell

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead

Thursday, July 19 , 6 pm – 10 pm, 2018

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance.

Jam band Joe Russo's Almost Dead (JRAD) first played together in 2013 and has built up a reputation as one of the best Grateful Dead cover bands out there. Started by Further drummer Joe Russo, the group also consists of Scott Metzger, Tommy Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, and Marco Benevento. With each bandmate bringing experience and talent to the group, "JRAD has all the makings of a great band, who just so happen to be a cover band, an all-star jam lineup full of history, chemistry, and personal flair" (AXS).
