Wake the Dead, the self-proclaimed "first Celtic all-star Grateful Dead jam band" combines forces with Rubber Souldiers, the rockabilly/jam-band Beatles tribute band for the world's most danceable Haiti benefit concert.

Wake The Dead combines seven of the most respected players in Northern California (Maureen Brennan on harp, Cindy Browne on bass, Danny Carnahan on vocals, fiddle, octave mandolin, and guitar, Kevin Carr on uilleann (Irish bellows) pipes, fiddle, and whistles, Sylvia Herold on vocals, Paul Kotapish on mandolin, guitar, and jaw harp, and Brian Rice on percussion) for a landmark meeting of traditional Celtic tunes and Grateful Dead classics. Wake The Dead is a romp that flows seamlessly from rock grooves to hot Irish reels, and from haunting airs to achingly beautiful melodies familiar to Deadheads everywhere.

Rubber Souldiers is the phenomenal Beatles tribute band combining the talents of Grateful Dead historian and innovative songwriter David Gans with the incomparable Rowan Brothers. This trio brings to the stage a rockabilly/jam-band revision of all your favorites from the Fab Four. Says band member Chris Rowan, "The essence of Rubber Souldiers is the harmony singing, instrumental jamming and the experimental approach."

Proceeds from this evening will go to Doctors Without Borders.
