Dead & Company was formed in 2015 when the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir joined forces with singer/guitarist John Mayer, Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge, and Fare Thee Well and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. The band has completed six tours, playing to more than 2 million fans.
In between tours, Dead & Company hosts its annual “Playing in the Sand” Caribbean concert vacation in Mexico. The next Playing in the Sand destination event – January 16-19, 2020 – features three nights of Dead & Company playing on an intimate beach at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancún.
