Joe Russo’s Pretty much Dead wrapped up their three-evening run at Westville Audio Bowl in New Haven Connecticut on Sunday. The Grateful Useless tribute act welcomed regular collaborator Stuart Bogie on saxophone and flute for the whole show.
Joe Russo’s Pretty much Dead —- guitarists Tom Hamilton and Scott Metzger, drummer Joe Russo, keyboardist Marco Benevento and bassist Dave Dreiwitz —- obtained the present going with an atmospheric beginning to “Eyes Of The World” with Bogie’s sax adding to the vibey intro. Hamilton then led the band via the typically well-jammed number with the New Haven rendition stretching to over 20 minutes. The band would touch on a brief tease of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ “Breakdown” ahead of Metzger sang lead on “Estimated Prophet.”
A “Friend Of The Devil” jam emerged from “Estimated,” which featured some delicious flute touches from Bogie. The “FOTD” jam then dropped properly into “Cassidy,” with Russo’s constant shuffle offering way to “Going Down The Highway Feeling Lousy.” Hamilton then led the band on “Candyman” which headed into “The Eleven.” Subsequent, JRAD returned to “Slipknot,” the band sent “Help On The Way” and “Slipknot” on Friday and this time JRAD done the basic trifecta with “Franklin’s Tower” to shut out the initial frame.
A further basic Dead juxtaposition in “Scarlet Begonias” and “Fire On The Mountain” kicked off the 2nd established. A fast “Scarlet” reprise led the band into a spirited “Beat It On Down The Line.” JRAD then cooled items off a bit with the poignant “He’s Gone” which led into a “Playing In The Band” excursion. Future, Russo pounded on the toms signaling “Samson and Delilah.” The song bounced together at a great clip with Metzger foremost the way on vocals. JRAD introduced the music to a crescendo punctuated by Russo’s tom fills to close out the 2nd established. Finally, the band fittingly shut out their to start with operate of 2021 with their stellar rendition of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born To Run” for the encore.
