Top 3 Grateful Dead songs


Tampa Bay’s Grateful Dead tribute band, Uncle John’s Band, headlined the Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary concert in 2015 and played its 1,000th show at Tampa’s Skipper’s Smokehouse last year.

Uncle John’s Band bassist and vocalist Rich Whiteley picked his three favorites songs:

– “’Box of Rain’ has dream-like lyrics reflecting life and grief with a haunting melody sung by Phil Lesh.”

– “’Birdsong’ has an unusual riff and improvisational interplay during the jam section like a chorus of joyous songbirds.”

– “’Terrapin Station’ is the perfect marriage of an epic tale by Robert Hunter told with symphonic grandeur by Jerry Garcia.”
