April 13, 2024 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Hailing from the vibrant music scene of Denver, Colorado, Steely Dead is a national touring band that has satisfied the curiosity of music lovers with their unique blend of Grateful Dead and Steely Dan. Comprised of four exceptionally talented musicians - Dave Abear on guitar, Matt Abear on bass, Chris Sheldon on drums, and Dylan Teifer on keys - Steely Dead has gained a dedicated following with their electrifying performances and soulful interpretations of classic tunes. Steely Dead's repertoire is a carefully crafted fusion of GratefulDead and Steely Dan songs, between the arrangement and precision studio recordings of rock legends Steely Dan, crosspollinated with the Grateful Dead’s free-flowing, melodic improvisation and masterful song segues. Steely Dead merges these major concepts together infusing the influence into each band, all the while creating an original jam element with the song segues. Steely Dead's performances are a musical journey that takes audiences on a nostalgic trip through the golden era of rock and roll.
