The Grateful Dead is a true American original. Born in San Francisco in 1965 and still creating music in various forms more than 50 years later, the Grateful Dead represents the most successful example yet of a band blending both rock and jazz in a live format accessible to -- and loved by -- millions.
The band's now-legendary multi-hour forays into musical exploration via in-the-moment improvisation became a beacon for millions of Deadheads who traveled millions of miles to spend thousands of nights with the Grateful Dead, experiencing their one-of-a-kind sharing of energy between band and audience.
We believe it fitting to celebrate this truly unique American original in much the same way we celebrate some of this country's most beloved jazz artists, and to share the celebration with folks who appreciate the Grateful Dead's enduring musical legacy as much as they do those of the greatest musical artists New Orleans -- and the rest of the country -- has ever produced.
Happening at one of the most beautiful and intimate venues in New Orleans and featuring some of the most well-known names in the extended Grateful Dead family, AXIAL TILT will be an all-out party in honor of the music, life, harmony, and spirit of togetherness inspired and Furthured by America's own Grateful Dead.
