After missing a pair of shows due to the birth of his daughter, including the sets at the Peach Festival this year, Joe Russo was back behind the drum kit at Joe Russo’s Almost Dead hit the road again.
This past weekend, JRAD visited Stanford University to play at Frost Amphitheater with special guest Stuart Bogie on the saxophone. The Grateful Dead were a staple at Frost Amphitheater through the 80s playing there a total of 14 times in the decade.
JRAD brought Stanford University back in time, if only for a night with some good ‘ol Grateful Dead. Some of the highlights included “China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider,” “Franklin’s Tower,” and “Estimated Prophet.”Standing on the Moon

Next stop up on JRAD’s tour is LOCKN this Thursday and then Red Rocks later in the month. If you aren’t making the annual pilgrimage to Infinity Downs in Arrington, VA (tickets are still available), you can follow all my LOCKN coverage over on Instagram.
Thanks to Ted Silverman for the outstanding footage!
