Sharrard will also welcome super-talented percussionist Nate Werth (Snarky Puppy, Ghost Note), and Gregg Allman Band bassist Brett Bass to create a high-flying tribute to the Allman Brothers Band that won’t be soon forgotten.

He recruited his Billy & the Kids bandmate Reed Mathis, Mathis’ Electric Beethoven bandmate Todd Stoops, and guitarist Eric Krasno to perform songs plucked mostly from the Grateful Dead catalog. They performed the songs in a funky style that showcased Kreutzmann’s signature shuffle, which locked in perfectly with Krasno’s jazz-club funk, Mathis’ constant drive for creation, and Stoops’ kinetic approach to the keyboards.
