ROCHESTER - Deadheads will be able to pay tribute to the great Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead at the Rochester Opera House on Saturday, August 29 at 8 p.m., when Half Step lights up the stage with a jammin' night of Dead music.

With attention to detail the band uses similar instruments, amplifiers and effects to closely authenticate the sound of the Grateful Dead, the "pioneering godfathers of the jam band world." To enhance the experience, the band plays sets in the sequence fans might have heard at a Grateful Dead concert years ago.

Based in Long Island, N.Y., Half Step is a group of dedicated fans and students of the Grateful Dead that capture the spirit, improvisation, sound and complexity of the Dead's music. With dedication and passion, the band accurately represents the superb body of work of the Grateful Dead and says, "It's a privilege to share our music with you."
