On December 4, 2016 Grateful Dead tribute act Joe Russo’s Almost Dead helped close out last year’s installment of Dominican Holidaze at Breathless & New Onyx Resorts in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Today’s Taper Tuesdays features an official recording of JRAD’s performance at the event which is a matrix of on-stage mics and the soundboard feed.

Drumer Joe Russo, guitarists Scott Metzger and Tom Hamilton, keyboardist Marco Benevento and bassist Dave Dreiwitz not only played two sets, but they also treated attendees to a public soundcheck on December 4. JRAD’s official Holidaze debut featured a number of inventive sequences such as fitting “Cassidy” between “Scarlet Begonias” and “Fire On The Mountain,” then working “Alligator” into “St. Stephen” and “Cumberland Blues” within “Throwing Stones.”
