Saturday night in Boston was smoking hot as Dead & Company wrapped up the east coast leg of their tour at Fenway Park. While Donna Godchaux was the special guest on stage inside the park all night, the after show across the street was just as incredible. Boston’s Bearly Dead performed at The House of Blues for a music hungry crowd that sold out the show in a matter of minutes. The show was in such demand that hundreds of people lined the street outside hoping to get in, even after every ticket was gone.
The members of Bearly Dead are Tyler Brooks and Brian Sayers on drums, David Becker on bass, James Owens on vocals, Milt Reder, Jeff Vetstein and Nick Swift on guitar, Andrew Johanson on keys, and Liz Ann Biggar on vocals. However, Saturday’s performance featured very special guest Steve Molitz, keyboardist for Particle. Needless to say, the stage was crammed with musicians as the venue was packed elbow to elbow with dancing fans ready to keep the party going.
Fans were treated to one giant super set that ran over two and a half hours, without a break. Molitz was relentless and pulled out all the stops during the set. The energy in the room was simply magical, as the music flowed seamlessly from one song to the next. The smoking hot set list blew the crowd out of the water. In a nutshell, fans that were lucky enough to get in the door were not disappointed and left with exhaustion from the nonstop vibes. When in Boston, make sure to catch this energy packed band, guaranteed to keep you dancing the night away.
