Greensky Bluegrass Plays Grateful Dead Set On Casual Wednesday In Winston-Salem

Jam fans love to say “Never Miss A Sunday Show,” but for Greensky Bluegrass followers (aka “Campers”) Wednesdays are the can’t miss shows. A few years back the band unveiled an original titled “Casual Wednesday” and have used the tune to introduce such wild affairs as all-cover sets, tag team performances with Fruition and more. The latest “Casual Wednesday” took place last night at The Millennium Center in Winston-Salem, where GSBG unveiled a rare Grateful Dead set as part of their performance.

Wednesday’s show started innocently enough with a set chock full of heavy rotation fan-favorites including “Windshield,” “Living Over,” “Just To Lie” and “Kerosense.” Greensky Bluegrass returned to the stage for the closing stanza at which point Anders Beck gave a speech as his mates played “Casual Wednesday” behind him. Beck talked about how Wednesdays are underrated and that “we here at Greensky Bluegrass we celebrate Wednesdays.” The band then worked “Casual Wednesday” into “Eyes Of The World,” one of 10 Grateful Dead covers that would end the show. Among the highlights was a wild “Cassidy” > “Cryptical Envelopment” > “The Other One” > “Cassidy” sequence, a gorgeous “Black Muddy River” and a euphoric “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider.”

Greensky Bluegrass had one more Grateful Dead cover in store for the encore. The five-piece jamgrass act ended the evening with “Shakedown Street.” Just another “Casual Wednesday” for a band that sure loves Hump Day. Listen to the second set and encore:
