Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will be joined by saxophonist Branford Marsalis at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver this spring. The collaboration will go down at the scenic Morrison, Colorado venue on Saturday, June 1.

Branford Marsalis and Joe Russo's Almost Dead first teamed up at the 2023 Newport Jazz Festival. The Grateful Dead tribute act was originally supposed to team with saxophonist Kamasi Washington at last year’s Newport Jezz. However, Washington canceled just days before the set with Marsalis stepping up to fill his shoes.
