While some cover bands choose to pay tribute to their rock heroes by playing faithful renditions of the hit songs, the Athens, Ga.-based group Cosmic Charlie determinedly dive deeper into things as they meander through the Grateful Dead’s vast catalog. Since forming in 1999, the six musicians of Cosmic Charlie have considered themselves “a Dead cover band for folks that are ambivalent about Dead cover bands.” Guitarist Michael Wegner says, “Rather than mimicking the Dead exactly, Cosmic Charlie chooses to tap into the Dead’s energy and style as a foundation on which to build. The result is a healthy balance of creativity and tradition. Both the band and its audience are taken to that familiar edge with the sense that music is actually being made here tonight.”
— T. Ballard Lesemann
