Hailing from the vibrant music scene of Denver, Colorado, Steely Dead is a national touring band that has satisfied the curiosity of music lovers with their unique blend of Grateful Dead and Steely Dan. Comprising four exceptionally talented musicians – Dave Abear on guitar, Matt Abear on bass, Chris Sheldon on drums, and Dylan Teifer on keys – Steely Dead has gained a dedicated following with their electrifying performances and soulful interpretations of classic tunes.

Steely Dead’s repertoire is a carefully crafted fusion of Grateful Dead and Steely Dan songs, between the arrangement and precision studio recordings of rock legends Steely Dan, cross-pollinated with the Grateful Dead’s free-flowing, melodic improvisation and masterful song segues. Steely Dead merges these major concepts together infusing the influence into each band, all the while creating an original jam element with the song segues. Steely Dead’s performances are a musical journey that takes audiences on a nostalgic trip through the golden era of rock and roll.

As a national touring band, Steely Dead has built a loyal fan base that eagerly anticipates their shows and follows them from city to city. Their performances are not just concerts, but communal gatherings where fans come together to celebrate the music they love, dance, and create lasting memories.

Steely Dead’s performances are a testament to the power of live music, bringing people together and creating an unforgettable experience that resonates long after the last note fades.

Steely Dead is not just a band; it’s a musical experience that captures the hearts and souls of music lovers everywhere

    Sounds fun!

  3. Reuben S on April 16, 2024 at 1:58 pm

    This sounds utterly bonkers and totally unnecessary and I’d love to go. As children of the 80s, it’s kind of a perfect mash-up for me and my bearded Deadhead friend Greg.

    I love both bands and I’m intrigued by the concept. It’s not a melding I ever considered.

    Precision Jam band. Oxymoron? I don’t care I want in pretty please!

  28. Brad on May 5, 2024 at 4:44 pm

    I LOVE Steely Dan and The Grateful Dead like most people love their dogs or children. This would be amazing and I promise (with every ounce of my dancing soul) that I would shake shake shake my tail feathers and come home with some stories to tell 😉

  29. Fulya on May 5, 2024 at 4:45 pm

    I just started getting into the Grateful Dead since I moved to the U.S. I’m from Turkey and we don’t really listen to them but since I moved to Portland and started making new friends I realized just how much I’ve been missing out. I love the scene and that feeling of uninhibitedness that comes with their culture and I can’t wait to keep experiencing new things like this in this wonderful city I now call home
