Billy & The Kids | Spring 1990 Revisited
As we reported back on Tuesday, Grateful Dead drummer Bill
Kreutzmann will bring his Billy & The Kids
ensemble to Denver’s Ogden Theatre on April 20, just days after he plays Red Rocks with the Disco Biscuits and Mickey Hart. Today, we’ve
the theme for the show – Spring 1990 Revisited.
Billy & The Kids made their debut at Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam in December
the core lineup of Kreutzmann, Reed Mathis, Aron Magner and Tom Hamilton. The quartet
will be joined by Big Gigantic front man Dominic Lalli in a nod to
the role of Branford Marsalis, who famously made his
as a Grateful Dead guest at Nassau Coliseum during the band’s Spring 1990 Tour. Billy
& The Kids’ performance is part of a celebration of 50 years of Grateful Dead and
also celebrates 25 years since the Dead’s landmark Spring 1990 tour. Look for the
evening’s songlist to focus mainly on selections from that tour.
Watch Billy & The Kids’ medley of “Chalk Dust Torture,” “Basically Frightened” and
“Turn On Your Lovelight” from their Christmas Jam debut with special guest Col. Bruce
Hampton helping out for the latter two tunes:
