Based on the governor's declaration, Whitaker Center, in consultation with the artist, has cancelled the Live Dead69! performance on March 17th.  We apologize for and regret the inconvenience.

Non-profit organizations such as ours have little contingency budget for civil emergencies.  We are grateful for the deep generosity of our community and ask that, whenever possible, you consider donating your tickets for a taxable contribution.  As a non-profit organization, Whitaker Center relies on the audiences we serve. By donating your tickets in lieu of a refund, you are providing vital support for the cultural events that inspire and connect our community.

If you would prefer a refund for your tickets, please email info@whitakercenter.org and we will process.

Thank you!

LIVE DEAD ‘69 expand their concept and repertoire for 2020 to include GRATEFUL DEAD @ Woodstock 50th Anniversary set. Their winter shows in February 2017, 2018 and this past March in the UK have assumed a certain mythology amongst Deadheads … the finale at London’s much regarded Under The Bridge concert venue was sold out and video of the performance has been widely circulated on the web. A recent U.S. performance was played on “The Grateful Dead Hour” syndicated radio show.

Comprised of:
Tom Constanten, original Grateful Dead pianist, inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and was essential to Grateful Dead’s first 2 experimental studio recordings “Anthem of The Sun” and “Aoxomoxoa.”

Mark Karan, lead guitarist with Bob Weir’s Rat Dog and The Other Ones, who is also a regular member in the rotating line-up of Phil Lesh & the Terrapin Family band.

Slick Aguilar played lead guitar with David Crosby Band 1982-1985. That year he co-founded KBC, and played lead guitar in Paul Kantner’s Jefferson Starship for 2,000 shows over 30 years, longer than any other musician.

Robin Sylvester, bassist with Bob Weir’s Rat Dog.
Joe Chirco drummer with John Kadlecik Band & Zen Tricksters.

 Doors open at 7:00 PM
