On Friday, March 3rd, 2006 at 8PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present Jazz is Dead- Jazz Explorations into the Music of the Grateful Dead

JAZZ IS DEAD embarks from the compass point of GARCIA and Co.’s most complex and audacious material, culled from many periods of their storied history. From there, the musical heading is unknown… each performance promising inspired improvisation and new discovery, like the band whose work they celebrate. This performance will be the 30th Anniversary tour of Grateful Dead’s “Blues For Allah”. The music is crafted by an all-star line-up including JEFF SIPE, ROD MORGENSTEIN, T LAVITZ, DAVID LIVOLSI and JEFF PEVAR. Special guest star opening for the tour is TOM CONSTANTEN - the original Grateful Dead pianist!

Keyboardist T LAVITZ was a co-founder of the legendary, six-time Grammy nominated band, The Dixie Dregs and its successor, The Dregs. He’s also toured and recorded with Widespread Panic, Jefferson Starship, The Bluesbusters, Scott Henderson and Journey’s drummer Steve Smith, among others.

Guitarist JEFF PEVAR is one of the tops in his field, having played and toured with such distinguished artists like David Crosby, Graham Nash, Ray Charles and Phil Lesh and Friends.

Bassist DAVE LIVOLSI has performance with such musical greats as John Scofield and jazz/funk supergroup Tower of Power.

Drummer JEFF SIPE has rocked out with Phil Lesh & Friends and Aquarium Rescue Unit.

Drummer ROD MORGENSTEIN is a founding member of the ground-breaking progressive rock fusion group, the Dixie Dregs, whose six most recent recordings received Grammy Award nominations for ‘Best Rock Instrumental Performance’. He also performed in such groups as The Steve Morse Band and Winger.

The Grateful Dead’s entire landmark recording “Blues For Allah” will be explored along with other Garcia/Hunter compositions recorded by Jazz Is Dead on their three acclaimed releases.
