Live Review- Dead & Company Jams Like No Other- @ Amway Center 2/27

Dead & Company Brings The Crowd Alive Like Only They Know How…Jamming for Hours !!


By Kara Robinson– Tie-dye, peace, and love reigned supreme through the streets of downtown Orlando on Tuesday as Dead and Company prepared to take the stage at Orlando’s Amway Center.

The band, featuring John Mayer (vocals/guitar), Grateful Dead members Bob Weir (guitar/vocals), Bill Kreutzmann (drums) and Mickey Hart (drums/percussion), plus Oteil Burbridge (bass/vocals) and Jeff Chimenti (keyboards/backing vocals), brought their signature sound to an active and eager fan base.

The show was originally intended to be part of the 2017 tour but was rescheduled due to Mayer’s emergency appendectomy.

Mayer is a flawless addition to the seasoned group, with his smooth vocals and guitar prowess. Dead and Company opened with “St. Stephen,” and the waiting crowd went wild. Weir and Mayer have a natural musical connection that is obvious to the audience.

The lights were spectacular, high reaching and insanely artistic. The lime and the purple mix was beautiful, and dual screens displayed unique close-ups of the musicians.

Set one closed with “The Wheel,” which transitioned into “Call Me Al,”—my personal favorite of the night. It’s impressive that the band did not feature an opening act, yet they played for three hours with only one intermission…the mark of seasoned professionals.

Anyone who appreciates classic rock would find this tour well worth the ticket price; John Mayer’s voice and talent is the cherry on top. Dead and Company are embarking on a 2018 summer tour, kicking off May 30 in Mansfield, MA and ending Aug. 26.
