Bruce Does the Dead

Bruce Hornsby Grateful Dead covers are in demand! From his high-school band, to an opening act, to a part-time member and throughout his own career, Bruce Hornsby has always played the music of the Grateful Dead. His 1995 “Hot House” record contains the last recorded work of Jerry Garcia, and he’s toured doing duo shows with Bob Weir. Throw in years of Furthur Festivals and the Other Ones, and Bruce has never been far away from the Dead.
