Celebrating The Music and Community of the Grateful Dead

April 8-11, 2021

Ventura County, CA

Keller Williams Grateful Grass

Definition: "Loose interpretations of Grateful Dead songs done in a bluegrass style. Take my fascination with Grateful Dead songs and mix it together with my love of psychedelic improvisational bluegrass music and out burps this project.

WARNING: If you like your Grateful Dead songs performed in their original way, or if you prefer traditional bluegrass, this is not the project for you. If you like singing along to Dead songs in that song's normal tempo but dancing double time to the music, this is definitely your jam. A lot of people seem to dig it and I dig them for that."

Keller's Grateful Grass delivers anything-but-traditional bluegrass versions of Grateful Dead favorites. Grateful Grass often times has a rotating lineup and so far, has included collaborations with The Keels, Keith Moseley (SCI), Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band), Michael Kang (SCI), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green, Mark Benevento Trio) Bill Nershi (SCI), Allie Kral, Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon), Sam Grisman and The Infamous Stringdusters.

In 2008, the original Grateful Grass members (Keller, Jeff Austin and Keith Moseley) recorded a live performance at The Fillmore in Denver, CO. 100% of the proceeds from REX (Live at the Fillmore) went to benefit The Rex Foundation, the charitable non-profit started by the Grateful Dead. Visit the Rex Foundation website or purchase a digital download and donate to the REX Foundation. Streaming is also available for REX here.

In 2010 Grateful Grass took the stage at Delfest for the first live appearance since 2008. In 2013, Grateful Grass ft. Keller, Jeff Austin, Keith Moseley and Michael Kang reunited to benefit the Rex Foundation once again at The Fillmore in San Francisco for the event, Nightfall of Diamonds. Once again this performance was recorded and DOS was released in 2014. All proceeds continue to benefit the Rex Foundation.

"Different collaborations of Grateful Grass will pop up from time to time as playing this music this way is such a blast that it probably should be illegal." - Keller Williams

SKULL & ROSES IV is OFFICIALLY RESCHEDULED for APRIL 8–11, 2021

Mark your calendars, we’re officially rescheduled to approximately the same time next year. We felt it best to take a full year off to allow the virus to run its course, rather than trying to force an earlier date that may also be negatively affected. ***If you plan to join us, you don’t need to do anything. Your ticket will be honored even if ticket prices increase in the future.***
