Dudes perform Dead and Garcia tunes in May


The Morning Dudes will perform four concerts around the state this month, including a set in Middlebury and in Brandon. The Morning Dudes play songs from the wide and varied repertoire of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead, including folk, blues, country, bluegrass and improvisatory rock. Jake Geppert (Weston) brings musical mastery on acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, ukulele and Tom Van Sant (Lincoln) holds down the rhythm on acoustic guitar. Both ‘dudes’ sing with passion and love of the material, borne out of their lifelong fandom and attendance at hundreds of Dead and Garcia concerts. It’s always a hoot!

Upcoming performances:

Friday, May 20: Third Place Pizza, Castleton, 6-9 p.m.

Wednesday, May 24: 51 Main, Middlebury, 7-9 p.m.

Saturday, May 27: Red CLover Ale, Brandon, 3-6 p.m.

Sunday, May 28: Shelburne Vineyard, Shelburne, 6-9 p.m.
