Grateful Dead

Day 26 – Playing In The Band

On a scorching August afternoon in summer of 1972, the Dead culture was in full swing in Veneta, Oregon.

An extended, psychedelic version of Playing In The Band from the show that would be filmed and released as Sunshine Daydream. The film played to a packed Roseville Movie Theater audience as recently as the summer of 2013.

To commemorate and celebrate the 50 year musical legacy of the Grateful Dead, an iconic American band and California favorite, we bring you “50 Days of The Dead”.

We are curating a list of fan favorites around the country from among the thousands of shows featuring the Grateful Dead, The Jerry Garcia Band along with a few surprises from artists who faithfully continue to carry on the spirit of the Dead.
