Wake The Dead At The Dance Palace
The Dance Palace is excited and proud to welcome back the Bay Area's own Celtic All-Star Summer of Love party band, Wake the Dead.
Wake the Dead was born in 2000 when three veteran Celtic performers who shared a love for the Grateful Dead experienced a joint flash of inspiration and began weaving the two seemingly alien musical genres into something new and immediately appealing. Singer-fiddler-mandolinist Danny Carnahan, singer-mandolinist Paul Kotapish, and Celtic harper Maureen Brennan assembled a septet of seasoned Celtic, jazz, and new acoustic players and recorded their eponymous CD Wake the Dead as a lark. But Grateful Dead Records took one listen, immediately signed the band, sold 25,000 copies of the CD, and booked Wake the Dead at the Fillmore. Nice start for what has turned into a 16-year romp that has seen the band's fan base spread as far as Canada and Colorado and their repertoire blossom beyond the Dead canon to encompass a whole, delightfully Celtic Summer of Love.
The band will be performing exciting new material from their recently released fourth CD, Deal. This ever popular septet combines Irish jigs and reels with the songs of the Grateful Dead and other '60s iconic bands, delivering them with unique power and joy. Soaring vocal harmonies and daring instrumentals fuel Wake the Dead's music, delighting Folkies, Celtoids and Deadheads alike.
Tickets are $20 advance, $18 seniors, $10 kids and teens. $22 at the door. For more information call (415) 663-1075.
