Alphonso Johnson and Jazz Is Dead Announce Winter Tour
Jazz Is Dead has announced a new set of tour dates for 2023 that will begin a celebration of the Grateful Dead tribute act’s 25th anniversary. It will also coincide with the 50th anniversary of the album Wake of the Flood. As such, they’ll perform Dead tunes from that record as well as other favorites.
The current lineup of the band includes Steve Kimock, Bobby Lee Rodgers, Pete Lavezzoli, and Alphonso Johnson. The bassist, known for his work with everyone from Weather Report and Santana, co-founded the band in 1998. He also performed in Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir’s solo projects in the ’80s, as well as the Dead spinoff band The Other Ones.
Jazz is Dead will kick off with a string of dates in California before heading into the Midwest. After a week on the East Coast, they’ll wrap things up in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, on January 28th.
