Full Bio

Play Dead is comprised of veterans of the Lawrence, Kansas (LFK) music scene with a very diverse background, allowing them the versatility required to deliver a unique presentation of the music of the Grateful Dead. The band does NOT do a theater re-creation of the sound or shows - there are plenty of fantastic bands that already do just that. Instead, Play Dead prefers to let the individual voices shine, the collective ensemble playing their own twist on the incredible songbook of the Grateful Dead.



PlayDead have been making a buzz in the music industry with incredible performances. If you’re ready to feature PlayDead in any way, please be in touch.
