Later this month, Dead & Company will begin their summer tour in Nevada. To help fans get excited, the group has shared pro-shot video of their performance of “Uncle John’s Band” from their 2016 show in Wheatland, California. Watch it above, via YouTube.
The song appeared on the Grateful Dead’s 1970 studio album Workingman’s Dead, and has since been a staple in many Grateful Dead sets. This performance exemplifies the fluid chemistry between the Dead & Company members. It’s a laid back version, with smooth playing from guitarist John Mayer. Many smiling faces can be seen when the camera cuts to the crowd, so keep your eyes open if you were in attendance or know someone who was!
