Born Cross-Eyed has been providing a Grateful Dead experience and performing their own brand of sparkling original music throughout Eastern Pennsylvania and beyond since 1978.

Some of the venues where Born Cross-Eyed has been a headliner include the Lone Star Cafe, John & Peters, Godfrey Daniels, Buckwha River Festival, the Silo, Khyber Pass, and the Wetlands.
