"As one of their fans put it, "If Jerry Garcia and Bob Marley had put a band together, it would have sounded like The Grateful Dread." For years, The Grateful Dread have been packing clubs on the island of Martha's Vineyard, enthralling sellout crowds with their unexpected hybrid of Grateful Dead songs played with reggae and ska grooves.

A homegrown Martha's Vineyard band, The Grateful Dread were as surprised as anyone to discover that the combination of Dead and reggae has amazing appeal, as evidenced by all the college kids, aging Deadheads, wistful Boomers, teenagers, and even little kids that started coming to their sold out shows, dancing like crazy, and making club owners deliriously happy.

The biggest surprise?It turns out you don't need to be a Deadhead to love what they do. In the summer, Martha's Vineyard has a population of about 120,000 people from all over the world.The Grateful Dread ignited a flame through this diverse community, resulting in sellouts of 500-capacity clubs and lines of over 100 people waiting all night to get in.

The members of the band have racked up substantial credits along the way as band members, sidemen, and session players,including stints with Carly Simon, Mick Taylor, Bo Diddley, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, Susan Tedeschi, Blood Sweat and Tears, Chuck Berry, and The Roches, and their drummer founded Entrain, the successful World Beat/Rock Band.
