Fun topic I've been thinking about! If you were to see a Dead cover band playing at a bar or some type of venue, what songs would you be surprised to hear, which songs would you want to hear, and which songs do you know you'll hear.

I've been thinking about maybe starting a jam band that covers a few Dead tunes and thought this could be a fun dicussion!

Fun! Partly thinking from the perspective of what the cover band I’m in plays, and partly from my own thoughts:

Surprised to Hear
Caution (I really want to add this one to our repertoire)
Comes a Time
Sing Me Back Home
Pretty much any ballad

Want to Hear
Help on the Way
The Other One
He’s Gone

Going to Hear
