December 1st - Shanachie Pub in Willits

December 2nd - Taphouse Pizza in Lodi

 Hardly Deadly is the Grateful Dead tribute show that’s turning heads! The band keeps the mother rolling, with love in the dream. Hardly Deadly's unique presentation of the Grateful Dead's catalog is full of surprises. They don't often recreate shows, but they do strive to recreate moments. Hours have been spent listening for that unique medley, the experimental format variations, and the various evolutions of the living work of a 30 year tour. These musicians continue their research into the archives, and show their love for the epic anthology at every show. 

Hardly Deadly has hosted numerous talented members and guests, seen thousands of road miles, packed clubs, played to crowds of hundreds, even thousands, and continues to unite kind people, with their favorite music. The show brings the feel of the big event, often in venues close to home, for ticket fares that haven't been common since the 60s. 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.
