The inaugural Los Muertos con Queso went down last month at the Barcelo Maya in Riviera Maya, Mexico to close out January in style. The beach-side event hosted The String Cheese Incident, Jackie Greene, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and the debut of a new project with Grateful Dead originals Bob Weir and Bill Kreutzmann, Dead & Company keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead guitarist Tom Hamilton, and Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools.
The debut of this Dead-inspired super group was indeed a main focus, playing six sets throughout the weekend. It was unfortunate when Bob Weir had to miss two of the six due to a bad case of food poisoning, but the show went on. Thanks to YouTube user G. Couris, you can enjoy full sets from January 26 and January 28 in the videos below.
