      One of the longest running Grateful Dead tribute bands in the world, Shakedown Street, makes its home in and around the Rocky Mountain region of North America. Spawned from jam sessions at the Ancient Mariner bar in Manitou Springs, Colorado in 1987, Shakedown Street quickly grew in popularity, and garnered a legion of loyal fans who refer to themselves as "Shakeheads". In a few short years, throngs of "Shakeheads" could be found on the highways and byways of the Rocky Mountains, making their way to another Shakedown Street show.

      In the live music venues of the Rocky Mountains, there are only a few bands that are able to consistantly draw large audiences. Shakedown Street accomplishes this year after year by embodying the Grateful Dead ethos of improvisation and discovery, while maintaining an intimacy and open repoire with its audience. A whole new generation of "Shakeheads" has discovered the positive and collaborative energy found at a Shakedown Street concert. Longtime fans are thrilled to find the band sounding hotter than ever, and having the time of their lives!

      The band's personnel is comprised of some of the most creative musicians from some of the finest Colorado bands: Josh Rosen (Lead Guitar and Vocals) from Fort Collins; Smokey Joe Weisiger (Keyboards/Organ and Vocals) from Arvada; Edwin Hurwitz (Bass) from Boulder; Scott Swartz (Rhythm Guitar and Vocals) from Moffat; and Christian Teele (Drums and Percussion) from Boulder.

      Throughout the years, Shakedown Street has had the privilege of sharing the stage with many iconic musicians. Some of these include former Grateful Dead members Vince Welnick and Tom Constanten, as well as Melvin Seals of the Jerry Garcia Band, and Grateful Dead technician and keyboard wizard Bob Bralove. Others include Los Lobos' David Hidalgo, The JGB Band, Hot Tuna, The David Nelson Band, NRPS, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Merl Saunders, Mitch Ryder, Spirit, Jerry Jeff Walker, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and Big Brother and the Holding Company.
