**POSTPONED** Wake The Dead: an Irish Celebration

Presented by Osher Marin JCC at Osher Marin JCC, San Rafael CA

**POSTPONED** Wake The Dead: an Irish Celebration

** Postponed **
We shall celebrate & dance on a rescheduled date.

This Irish Celebration with WAKE THE DEAD’s signature blend of Celtic traditional & Summer of Love rock music is postponed to support the recommendations of the Marin DOH & a healthy community. We shall celebrate & dance on a rescheduled date.

A perfect March celebration offering an evening of savory flavors, live music, fun & dance driven by the amazing musicians that make up the Bay Area’s own Wake The Dead.

Join the fun as their signature blend of Celtic traditional and Summer of Love rock music fills the Hoytt theater for this “Pub J” party.

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.

Come celebrate as this acoustic sextet reimagines 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.

“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

The Evening begins with a pre-concert Irish Reel dance instruction from Michael Murphy, no-host cocktails and dinners available for purchase from Epicurean Group’s own on-site pop-up restaurant offering cultural light meals to match the evening’s flair.

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