The DeadbeatsThe DeadBeats formed during the Summer of 1994 on the notion they could pull off some reasonable Grateful Dead covers.  Soon it was apparent the band was on to something, a certain indefinable sound and feel that really captures the essence of a Dead show.

Though band members have come and gone over the years, Tom, Paul, and Gary have remained the core of the band, providing a solid continuity to the DeadBeat sound.
