Bill Kreutzmann has added yet another stop to his impending fall appearances. The signature backbeat behind the Grateful Dead shared that at the end of the month, he will host Grateful Mantra, two nights of music slated to take place at The Porter Pavilion in Kilauea, Kaua’i. Joining the drummer are members of ALO, Circles Around the Sun, Stephen Inglis Project, and more.
Supporting Kreutzmann during his forthcoming stand is a complementary arrangement of musicians, including Reed Mathis, from Kreutzmann’s own Billy & The Kids project. They will also welcome Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz, Adam McDougall and Stephen Inglis. In addition to the already-mentioned players, Kanekoa will deliver their infusion of ukulele-powered Hawaiian jams.
The Kaua’i shows have been billed as a benefit, as described in the event announcement: “A fundraiser for community member’s medical needs expect these evenings to be dance celebrations while this one-time-only all-star band explores the Grateful Dead songbook.”
The newly added Hawaii dates are the latest in a string of fresh appearances for the beloved percussionist. Previously, he announced the transition from pier to port, following up with shows slated for Port Chester, N.Y.’s Capitol Theatre on Oct 20 and 21. Kreutzmann also shared that his Billy & The Kids unit will pop over to California for follow-ups. The aforementioned dates have been billed as Daze of The Dead.
