As 2017 began, drummer Bill Kreutzmann held a party in Hawaii where he teamed with guitarist Eric Krasno, bassist Reed Mathis and keyboardist Todd Stoops to provide entertainment for the attendees of the private affair. Kreutzmann dubbed the project the “Rooster Conspiracy.” Krasno, Mathis and Stoops will join with RatDog/Electric Beethoven/Primus drummer Jay Lane under the “Rooster Conspiracy” banner to play a Dead tribute set at Brooklyn Comes Alive.
The 2017 installment of Brooklyn Comes Alive will be held at three venues in Brooklyn that are within walking distance of each other: Brooklyn Bowl, The Hall At MP and Music Hall Of Williamsburg. Brooklyn Comes Alive will feature over 100 musicians joining forces in various lineups to play sets spanning from brunch performances to late night affairs between September 23 – 24.
BCA organizers have been rolling out the band formations at a steady clip. The Rooster Conspiracy funky Dead set joins previously detailed tributes to Green Day, The Allman Brothers Band and Jamiroquai as well as an Eric Krasno & Friends performance and a set from George Porter Jr., Henry Butler and Johnny Vidacovich. Stay tuned for additional Brooklyn Comes Alive announcements.
