The Kanbar Center at the Osher Marin JCC brings the multicultural flavors, movement, live music and fun of Summer Festivals indoors to shake up those Winter Nights. On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Bay Area’s own WAKE THE DEAD brings their mash of Celtic tradition and Summer of Love rock for an evening of fun, food, dancing, and music.

Wake the Dead offers a Celtic /Rock jam fusion

An eminently listenable stroll through new pastures that should please both Deadheads and trad music fans who’ve never touched tie-dye. - Brad Kava, San Jose Mercury News

Come celebrate the influences of Irish music as this acoustic sextet re-imagines the classic songs of the Grateful Dead and more for a rollicking sonic excursion that has delighted audiences for over 18 years. WAKE THE DEAD is a romp that flows seamlessly from rock grooves to hot Irish reels, and from haunting airs to achingly beautiful melodies familiar to Deadheads everywhere with vocal harmonies that float like clouds. The music takes off and the band follows, grinning all the way. These aren’t worlds colliding; they’re worlds meshing, coalescing, and creating a whole new world of possibility that is true to the spirits of the Grateful Dead and the eternally hopeful Celts.

There will be a pre-concert dance demonstration and concessions will offer cocktails, State Room Brewery brews on tap, Hafner Wines and light dinners available from Epicurean Group’s own on-site pop-up restaurant.

Come shake off the winter blues with a joyful night of rollicking live music, dancing and fun!
