Phuncle Sam

Asheville’s finest Grateful Dead tribute. While keeping true to the delicate intricacies of America’s favorite pioneers, Phuncle Sam consistently delivers an exceptional performance of favorites and rarities. Any Dead Head is sure to fall in love.

Dirty Dead

Asheville NC's DIRTY DEAD are literally on fire. With high-energy, modern interpretations of the classic GD/JGB catalog, DIRTY DEAD are calling the music higher and further than in a long time! With an eclectic mix of players from various styles of music -- as the Grateful Dead were --something new, fresh and exciting is happening. Psychedelia, reggae, funk and hip-hop in a Grateful Dead song? OK, got to see this!

THE SOUND grew out of guitarist / flautist PAUL DRUM DECIRCE's feeling the urge for the Dead sound to evolve further -- further than trying to imitate or even emulate the great bands accomplishments. GRATEFUL DEAD played at the foot of the pyramids and JERRY GARCIA rocked for thirty years ... no need to try and copy that.

INSTEAD, the band simply lead their individual styles to a mash up...and the result quite simply is ... DIRTY!
