While The Music Plays The Band

 Hardly Deadly is the Grateful Dead tribute show that’s turning heads! The boys keep the mother rolling, with love in the dream. The band has hosted numerous talented members and guests, seen thousands of road miles, packed clubs, played to crowds of hundreds, even thousands, and continues to love the dream. Hardly Deadly’s spacey rocking psychedelic sound is a well appreciated vehicle for delivering the musical sound and feel that brings Deadheads to gather and celebrate.

In just a few short years, Hardly Deadly has played nearly a hundred shows, covering much of the Grateful Dead’s early 70’s catalog, and always expanding the playlist. The band has earned repeat invitations to festivals like the Berkeley Shakedown Street Festival, and Southern Humboldt’s Golden Tarp Awards. Hardly Deadly has performed shows with great acts and players like A Bears Choice, Midnight North, Achilles Wheel, Melvin Seals & JGB, The Eleven, Stu Allen, Cryptical, Sunshine Becker, the Dead Winter Carpenters, Tom Constanten, Leo Nocintelli, Cubensis, and more.

Dan Murphy - Guitar & Vocals

Dan Murphy was born in the San Francisco bay area, and raised in California's central valley. He was only 21 when the Grateful Dead lost their captain, but he never lost the love for the music, and the massive organism that is the Grateful Dead experience. The Grateful Dead's music itself carries a magic that spills over onto anyone who touches it. It's no wonder that Dan has so much fun playing in the band.
