Pro-Shot: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Shares Acoustic ‘Terrapin Suite’ Video

As reported, on Friday Joe Russo’s Almost Dead played the second of three nights at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City during which John Mayer sat-in with the Grateful Dead Tribute act. Like Thursday’s opening show of the Fall Ball II run, JRAD also set up on a small stage for a mini-acoustic set, and the band has shared a lengthy video highlight of Friday’s “unplugged” segment.

Drummer Joe Russo, guitarists Scott Metzger and Tom Hamilton, (upright) bassist Dave Dreiwitz and keyboardist/accordionist Marco Benevento offered a three-song acoustic performance on the separate stage built on the venue’s bowling lanes. After takes on “Jack-A-Roe” and “Dark Hollow” the ensemble tackled the expansive “Terrapin Suite” from the Grateful Dead’s 1977 album Terrapin Station.

Watch the 27-minute rendition in the officially released video below:
