Sundown Summer Series w/ Dead Keys!!!

Tallahassee Sundown Summer Series 2017

The New 76ers have been in many different bands formed throughout the years, but none has there been a band that they all were in… except for Dead Keys! A Grateful Dead cover band started out in the early 2000’s playing at the Warehouse every Thursday night for a 6 Month stint. Having that show created a following no one could imagine and created a bond between the musicians that will carry on until the end of our days.

Unfortunately, the reason behind us all getting back together for a reunion show was because of our beloved brother and guitarist, Scott Campbell, passing away. This show at Cascades Park this Saturday will be our last goodbye to our dear friend.

It’s a free show so please come out and watch The New 76ers join forces with other amazing musicians to form Dead Keys! The Midtowners (they’re not stuck on the name) is a band that was started by Chris Skene, Mickey Abraham, Reo Morris, & our very own Brian Durham. They will open the show at 7pm.

Here’s the details:

7pm-8pm – The Midtowners

8pm-10pm – Dead Keys

The Road – Tennessee and North Carolina

We first stopped in Knoxville, TN for a show at WDVX Blue Plate Special, which you can hear that show’s recording in their archives for another two weeks by clicking here and selecting the date Thursday May 12, 2016. We finished that night off at Barley’s Taproom in Knoxville.

The next night we had an awesome time at the Brookes’ house. They opened up their doors, invited some of their closest friends, and allowed us to put on a house concert for them all! We will have dreams of the fruit dip for years and years to come!

The last night of our tour, we went out with a bang playing music with our friends Chinquapin Duo and The Clydes! The show was held in The Grey Eagle and it’s no wonder why it was one of the Ten Must-See Southern Music Venues on Garden & Gun’s list. They said it best when they said that “the Grey Eagle rises above the rest for its gorgeous-sounding room…” (M. Hendrickson, 2016). We were more than pleased with the sound and the staff were top-notch professionals. I’d like to also add that this being our very first time playing in Asheville, the crowd was amazing and so very kind to us! We will definitely be coming back!

 

Catch us out at Florida Folk Festival 2016
