Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann has been doing a lot of sit-ins recently, from bucket drumming on the streets of San Francisco to joining an unsuspecting band for a cover of the Dead’s classic tune, “Scarlet Begonias.” Perhaps it’s no surprise that Kreutzmann continued his sit-in streak.
The “Fantastic Four” concert, featuring an all-star lineup of Oteil Burbridge, Eric Krasno, Adam Deitch and Robert Walter featuring Cheme Gastelum (Dap Kings/Antibalas) at the Blue Nile in New Orleans, were in for a surprise, as Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann joined in the festivities.
During the show Kreutzmann exclaimed to his manager Benjy Eisen, “Do you see this? Do you see this!”, as he gushed over Deitch’s playing. After his sit-in Bill Kreutzmann was quoted by L4LM saying, “Adam Deitch is my current favorite drummer!”
Adam Deitch currently plays in Lettuce, Break Science, and Pretty Lights Live Band.
It is no surprise where Adam’s talent comes from, as both of his parents are remarkable musicians. His father, Bobby Deitch, is playing a Live For Live Music show with Adam Deitch in New York on May 19th at Webster Hall! His mother, Denise Deitch, recently sat in with Marco Benvento, Robert Walter, Skerik, and more in New Orleans!
