The Englert is proud to present Iowa City’s own Grateful Dead tribute Winterland live in concert for Best of Europe ’72 on Saturday, December 16 at 8 p.m.
The classic live triple album was recorded during a 22-date tour of Western Europe in early 1972, becoming one of the first certified gold triple-record rock albums. Europe ’72 features definitive versions of classic Dead songs including “Brown Eyed Women,” “Jack Straw,” and the pairing of “China Cat Sunflower/I Know You Rider.”
Musicians from several different bands active in the Midwest region’s vibrant original music scene come together to explore, emulate, and enjoy the music of The Dead’s classic ’69-’78 period. These players come from bands playing in nearly every musical genre- jazz, funk, country, prog-rock, blues, bluegrass, folk and rock n roll. When they take the stage together their influences, as disparate as they may seem, meld together beautifully to make music that can only be labeled as Grateful Dead music.
