Joe Russo's Almost Dead can only be described as an energy-driven and intense band thriving on unique and organic interaction between band members Russo, Scott Metzger, Tommy Hamilton, Marco Benevento and Dave Dreiwitz. Learning from the source itself, Joe Russo, who has performed numerous times with Futhur and Phil Lesh & Friends has discovered and captured the essence of Grateful Dead's music and spirit.
"Not only does this quintet play tight and vicious versions of some of the most complex songs in the Grateful Dead's repertoire, but they play them with a rawness & energy absent from the stage since the "Live" Dead era. More importantly, all of the jams are wild and incredibly adventurous. Russo's a beast behind the kit who's in the peak of his career. Metzger is a criminally underrated guitarist who has a chameleon-like ability to alter his sound to compliment any situation. Dreiwitz's intensity is unmatched by anyone, while Benevento spouts these crazy tones and layers of sound that mix the best of what each keyboardist in GD history brought to the band. Finally, add Hamilton, whose voice and biting leads help push this ensemble over the top." - Scott Bernstein, Jambase 9.12.13
