Grateful Dead

Christopher-Sabec-Grateful-Dead-compressorChristopher Sabec’s first encounter with Grateful Dead was arranging a meeting with them and George Bush Senior to support the president’s environmental stance. Christopher kept in contact with the band since then and eventually was hired as a consultant for the band on two different projects in 2000. Christopher eventually represented Jerry Garcia.

In 1965, The Grateful Dead was formed in Palo Alto, California. The band was known for their eclectic mix of various music styles and long improvisational sets. They were pioneers in this realm, being known as “the Godfathers of jam bands.” In 1994, they were inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

Grateful Dead consisted of Jerry Garcia on the guitar and vocals; Bob Weir on the guitar and vocals; Ron “Pigpen” McKernan on the keys, harmonica, and vocals; Phil Lesh on the bass and vocals; and Bill Kreutzmann on the drums. Mckernan unfortunately passed away in 1973, but the rest of the band mostly stayed together for their very successful 30 year career. Other notable members throughout the bands illustrious career were Mickey Heart on the drums, Keith Godchaux on the keyboards, Donna Godchaux on the vocals, Brent Mydland on the keyboard and vocals, and Vince Welnick on the keyboards.
