About Hardly Deadly
Hardly Deadly is a central California based Grateful Dead tribute band, founded in 2013. The band has hosted numerous talented members and guests, seen thousands of road miles, packed clubs, played to crowds of hundreds, even thousands, and continues to deliver a completely different, solidly entertaining show, every time. Hardly Deadly’s extensive playlist spans many genres, with full setlists of blues, country, high energy rock, folk ballads, and even a few that could be called gospel, making the band versatile for all types of events. Hardly Deadly is known for giving Deadheads a well delivered rendition of the music they love. The average listener hears a show that uses the music as a vehicle for a great ride, and more than a few times they become Deadheads themselves.
