The Deadbeats Post DSO Party
December 28, 2019 @ 11:00 pm
After revamping the band for a fresh new start in 2017, The Deadbeats are better than ever. They added some positive vibes to the mix to help generate some fantastic energy.
Saratoga Living Magazine ranked them in the Top Five Local Tribute acts of 2019. They were voted Best Jam Band of 2017 in The Capital Region of NY, and they took second for Best Cover Band and Best Tribute Band.
Longtime members Denise Parent and Mike Johnson have kept the band together for over two decades, and they have not missed a beat. Brian Miller and Dan Gerken are alternating bass players who each add their own special and unique styles to the band. Brian Mangini (Ominous Seapods, Raisinhead, Moepods) rounds out the foursome by adding rhythm and color to the band’s tapestry of sound.
After 27 years, the band is still rockin the music of The Grateful Dead, JGB, Phish, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin. Bob Marley, Janis Joplin and so much more.
The Deadbeats started out playing in New Paltz in the early 90’s and soon began touring the East Coast. This has helped them develop a huge fan base. Currently The Deadbeats play in Kingston and Albany regularly, and can also be found playing all around NY’s Hudson Valley and Capital Region.
They still are one of the hardest working bands in the Northeast since their inception in 1992. Their Grateful Dead/Phish inspired shows are a celebration of improvisational, jamming rock & roll.
As a result of playing over a quarter of a century together, they have amassed a large and loyal following of fans who appreciate the open ended, participatory nature of their performances.
Working without a net, their set lists, arrangements, and jams are all left open to the inspiration of the particular moment, drawing in the crowd as active participants in the creative process rather than just spectators. It is a unique experience and it has been this commitment to these musical and philosophical ideals that has set The Deadbeats apart.
The Deadbeats have an inexhaustible repertoire, and they are always adding more songs to the 300 plus catalog of songs. They are actually able to please most of the people most of the time.
