It's crazy that a former Grateful Dead drummer was instrumental in assembling one of the coolest New Orleans bands currently touring. Bill Kreutzman has joined forces with NOLA products George Porter Jr. (The Meters, Runnin' Pardners), Papa Mali and Matt Hubbard to form 7 Walkers - a band in which all members distinct personalities are right up front and on display. Yes, its a departure from Grateful Dead, but Bill and friends are clearly inspired and are having a great time executing on a shared vision.
Silver Wrapper brings 7 Walkers to the cozy Lincoln Hall on August 16, 2012. Tickets are $26 in advance, $28 at the door. After getting down on the festival circuit for most of the year, this will be a great opportunity to catch the band in a club setting.
“I can’t believe how much fun I’m having playing with these guys! We’re making art together and having the best time.” - Bill Kreutzman
