Redondo Dead "Grateful Dead Tribute" – An All-Star Legacy of Psychedelic Rock

Delivering the Grateful Dead experience live in concert. A high energy Dead band made up of pro musicians from Los Angeles. The show has everyone dancing from start to finish. The band has former members from Rod Stewart, The Eurythmics, Alan Parsons Project, The Alligators, Rockestra and more.


Our lead singer has seen over 200 Grateful Dead shows from 1977 - 1994. "Having the experience to see the Grateful Dead live with Keith and Donna was incredible. The Brent Mydland years really rocked the band. Seeing them at Radio City Music Hall in an acoustic set was another fantastic side of The Dead. Adding Bruce Hornsby and Branford Marsalis added another level of musical blend". Redondo Dead recreates all of that and more.

For three remarkable years, Redondo Dead has been a driving force in the classic rock scene, enchanting audiences with their authentic tribute to the legendary Grateful Dead. Rooted in passion and commitment to the craft, Redondo Dead has become a staple in the jam band genre, captivating music enthusiasts with their transcendent performances that pay homage to the iconic sound that defined an era.

Our one-year residency at the famous Rock & Brews Redondo Beach, owned by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of Kiss, became a mecca for Dead Heads in the Southbay Los Angeles. Our 2023 El Segundo Art Walk concert drew so many people, they had to close down the streets.
