WINTERLAND Returns to the Depot Sept 8th
Saturday, Sept 8th 8:30pm, Iowa City’s WINTERLAND, who’ve been billed as the Ultimate Grateful Dead Tribute, will be appearing at the Depot Brewery.
Specializing in the Grateful Dead music circa late 60s through late 70s, Winterland pulls you back in time to a place where rhythm’n’blues, folk and country roots were deeply embedded in the band’s musical approach even as they explored the wild and experimental outer reaches of psychedelic rock. Winterland channels the Grateful Dead with an uncanny fidelity to the Dead’s musicianship, tonality and emotional relationship with the audience.
Winterland consists of drummer/vocalist Joshua Weiner, a biology professor at the University of Iowa; vocalist and guitarist Marc Janssen; and three members of The Mayflies, guitarist/vocalist Stacy Webster, bassist David Lumberg and drummer James Robinson who play in nearly every musical genre–jazz, funk, country, prog-rock, blues, bluegrass, folk and rock n roll–and as disparate as that may seem, meld together beautifully to make music that can only be labeled as Grateful Dead music.
