Joe Russo's Almost Dead Release All Three Soundboards from this Weekend's Masterpiece.

Joe Russo's Almost Dead Release All Three Soundboards from this Weekend's Masterpiece. Listen Here! 



 


       There is no denying the magic that JRAD posseses. They have transcended what I thought a cover band could accomplish. I think Tom Hamilton's addition in Bobby and Billy's new band is just more validation, but to the band's growing fanbase the verdict has been in for some time. This past weekend at the Brooklyn Bowl for "Fall Ball 2"they pulled off a three night masterpiece. From John Mayer sitting in for a complete set to the near perfect 27 minute acoustic Terrapin Station Suite, this weekend had it all. Thanks to JRAD and Live For Live Music we have the soundboards from all three nights. I know what I will be listening to on my way to work this week.
