The Deadbeats

The Deadbeats get that the music of the Grateful Dead is best live.

The band made their debut at Nevada City’s renowned Mad Dogs and Englishmen Pub on August 4, 1994.  Filled to capacity with crowds lining up outside, they knew they were on to something – a certain indefinable sound and feel that captures the essence of a Grateful Dead concert.

They started Jerry Bash in 1996 as a free concert in Pioneer Park.  Over the years, band members have rotated but the core group continues with great shows and big crowds.  The current lineup includes Tom Menig, Gary Campus, Eric Menig, Rob Kopp, Glenn Tucker, Peter Wilson, and Jenn Knapp.
