Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Announce Jazz Fest After Shows

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, a popular Grateful Dead tribute act, will play two Jazz Fest shows at New Orleans’ historic Joy Theater on Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30.

For these two shows only, the group will perform with Furthur/Fare The Well keyboardist Jeff Chimenti on keys instead of Marco Benevento. The rest of the lineup will stay the same, with Joe Russo on drums, Dave Dreiwitz on bass, and Tommy Hamilton and Scott Metzger on guitar.

The upcoming gigs will mark the band’s second Jazz Fest run at the Joy Theater, following last year’s sold out two-night stand.

Tickets for Joe Russo’s Almost Dead at the Joy Theater will go onsale this Friday, January 29 at 11am. Two-day passes will be available.
