The Kanbar Center at the Osher Marin JCC brings the multicultural flavors, movement, live music and fun of Summer Festivals indoors to shake up those Winter Nights.

Come celebrate the influences of Irish music as this acoustic sextet re-imagines the classic songs of the Grateful Dead and more for a rollicking sonic excursion that has delighted audiences for over 18 years.

Wake the Dead is a romp that flows seamlessly from rock grooves to hot Irish reels, and from haunting airs to achingly beautiful melodies familiar to Deadheads everywhere with vocal harmonies that float like clouds.  The music takes off and the band follows, grinning all the way.

These aren’t worlds colliding – they’re worlds meshing, coalescing, creating a whole new world of possibility, and true to the spirits of the Grateful Dead and the eternally hopeful Celts.

 “Wake the Dead is a thorough delight from start to end.  You’ve never heard songs like ‘Bertha and ‘Bird Song’ quite like this, and it’s likely that you’ll never listen to them in quite the same way again.”
—Gary Lambert, Grateful Dead Almanac

Pre-concert dance demonstration.  Cocktails and dinners available from Epicurean Group’s  own on-site pop-up restaurant offering cultural light meals to match the evening.

Come shake off your winter blues with a joyful night of rollicking live music, dancing and fun!
