Honoring the spirit of The Grateful Dead and the music of New Orleans seems the most logical thing in the world — after all, they both embody celebration. In 2015, Voodoo Dead debuted at the NoLA Jazz Festival as a super group featuring Steve Kimock, Bill Kreutzmann, Jeff Chimenti, Dave Schools, and Keller Williams.
With slightly varied lineups exploring the Dead’s expansive live catalog, it’s gone on to become an annual late-night staple at JazzFest and blessed special rooms across the country. Voodoo Dead has included such outstanding players as George Porter Jr., Oteil Burbridge, Jackie Greene, John Kimock, Wally Ingram, Papa Mali, and many more.
