The Grass is Dead
The Grass is Dead
What’s in a name? Sometimes, everything… Grass is Dead are a bluegrass combo paying homage to the music and cultural legacy of The Grateful Dead, arguably America’s first folk rock band and one of the most influential musical artists of the last 50 years. The catalogue of the Dead’s music is a gold mine for string bands and story tellers, and Grass Is Dead have established themselves far and wide as premiere purveyors of this rich tradition of Americana music. Pickin’ and grinnin’ is what they do best, and they have been adapting Grateful Dead songs in their own bluegrass style since 1998.

A festival favorite, Grass is Dead has built a loyal following from their home state of FL throughout the Eastern United States through burning live shows, and well beyond, through word of mouth, social media and old fashioned taper trees. The demand for Grateful Dead music is seemingly endless, and there are countless cover bands satisfying that demand on the local level, but there are not many artists out there approaching the music from the perspective of Grass is Dead. It is not complicated or artsy: this is a straight forward hootenanny built to last, and fans of either bluegrass music, The Grateful Dead, or both always leave happy, because sometimes there’s nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile…

The Grateful Dead and their music have had a significant influence on all of our lives. Through the brotherhood of Deadheads we have gotten to know so many people and have made so many really good friends. And it is thanks to these friends that we offer this tribute to a band that means so much to so many people. The Dead never failed to please and the thousands of Deadheads that keep the music alive are a tribute to a band that has a never ending story.

Beggars Tomb recreates the music from different eras in a faithful representation to the original artist. We play accurate renditions of all the classic Grateful Dead tunes. Their spirit lives on at our shows and in the musical renditions by Beggars Tomb
