The ultimate Grateful Dead tribute band on tour today, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, stormed into Boston and kicked off a two-night run at the House of Blues. Every JRAD show has surprises, but last night featured one of the biggest of all—JRAD guitarist Tom Hamilton was playing Jerry Garcia’s legendary Wolf guitar!
Hamilton didn’t waste this once in a lifetime opportunity. Watch him shred on classic Grateful Dead tunes like “Easy Wind,” “St. Stephen” and “Morning Dew” among others.
