Friday night in North Carolina was the summer tour opener for Dead and Company. For those who are not familiar with this band it is some of the members of The Grateful Dead with some new musicians added to the line up. Most notably is John Mayer playing the part of the late great Jerry Garcia. Many have tried to fill Jerry's shoes but in my opinion they have all fallen a little short... until now. John Mayer has channeled Jerry in a way I never thought imaginable. The entire band is really tight. They opened with the Music Never Stopped and they were off and running from there. The night was packed with hits like Friend of the Devil, Cassidy, Promise Land and a 25 minute Eyes of the World to open the second set. I suggest catching these guys if you get the chance. Good stuff!
