Acclaimed Saxophonist & Composer DAVE MCMURRAY brings his 5-Piece Band to Jimmy's in a tribute to the Grateful Dead. McMurray's recent album, 'Grateful Deadication 2' (2023), the follow-up to his acclaimed 2021 tribute album, 'Grateful Deadication', again finds the Saxophonist reimagining the songs of the Grateful Dead with his gritty and soulful Detroit sound. Dave has worked with BB King, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Iggy Pop, Bonnie Raitt, Patti Smith, Bootsy Collins, Herbie Hancock, Bob James, Kem and many more. "McMurray has seized on that opportunity to again thrill fans in that magical spot where Deadheads, jam band fanatics, and inquisitive jazz fans can meet with his sequel, Grateful Deadication 2," raves GLIDE MAGAZINE (2023 Album Review of 'Grateful Deadication 2'). "The spirit behind this Deadication is one of love and soul, and this particular dressing provides plenty to enjoy," states ALL ABOUT JAZZ (2023 Album Review of 'Grateful Deadication 2').
"Dave McMurray has a driving, propulsive groove behind his tenor saxophone...a jazz musician rooted in the beat...steeped in the groove. It's that spot-on bounce that's made McMurray a go-to sideman for the likes of B.B. King, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan...as well as Herbie Hancock, Geri Allen and Bob James in jazz," states DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE.
