Grantful Dead Revue
Grantful Dead Revue is an All-Star Amalgamation of Grant Farm and Rocky Mountain Grateful Dead Revue. The Rhythm Devils combo of Sean “Magic” Macaulay and Mayor Jake Wolf on Double Drums rolls like Thunder against the Lesh-ist punctuation of Adrian “Ace” Engfer on Bass. Riding the monster wave of rhythm are Kevin “Money” McHugh on Keyboards, Arthur Lee Land on Bobby Guitar and “Champ” Tyler Grant on Lead Garcia Guitar. The core members of this group were granted the #2 honor of the “Ten Best Moments of WinterWonderGrass Tahoe 2016” from JamBase.com, for their spearheading of the annual Pickin’ On the Dead sets. https://www.jambase.com/article/10-best-moments-winter-wondergrass-2016
