About this Event

BETTER OFF DEAD: A TRIBUTE TO GRATEFUL DEAD:

A love of the music, philosophy and spirit of the Grateful Dead was the basis of the formation of the band in 2008. We have had changes in the line up ever since we began but believe our current roster is the best since we started.

Whitney Pearsall, our lead vocalist, is one of the original members of the band. Music has been a huge part of her life. She was an entertainer at a very early age. She has been the featured vocalist in bands in Maryland and North Carolina.

Rich Saltz, one of our guitar players, is also one of the original members of the band. He draws on his love of the music of the Grateful Dead, having seen over 150 shows. Jerry Garcia's influence is easily evidenced in his playing style.

Sean Geist is the latest in our long line of bass players. He has been involved in many projects in NY and NC. After opening in another band for Better Off Dead, Sean's interest in the Music of the Grateful Dead was piqued. He accepted an offer to join the band in 2016. Sean continues to provide thunderous bass lines which are essential to the music.

Brant Kay plays keyboards and shares the lead vocal responsibilities. He is also an accomplished guitar player. He has played in bands in Virginia, California, New Mexico, and North Carolina. He grew up with the music of the Grateful Dead in his family and it continues to be a vital part of his being.

Jonas McAlarney is the band's resident "Bobby" His understanding of rhythms and counter rhythms is evident in his playing and adds color and texture to the mix. He previously played in They Are Only Mostly Dead based in Wilmington

Lars Hartmann is in his second tour with the band. He has been involved in many projects in the Triangle. He brings a sense of spirit and reckless abandon to the mix. To say it simply, he is a MONSTER behind the kit.

The band's goal is not to present note by note recreations of what the Grateful Dead produced but to pay homage to the music that has affected us deeply.
