A night of live music cele
“Take A Step Back” performs the music of The Grateful Dead live at the Carriage Barn Arts Center. Led by Michael-Louis Smith on guitar, all the members of TASB realize of the important innovations, and contributions The Grateful Dead and their crew made to the world of music, touring, sound engineering, technology, and live recording. They’ll perform a repertoire featuring uplifting rhythms, unique song forms, organic harmonic progressions and the gorgeous and often cryptic storytelling in the lyrics that connects the listener to the inner fabric of the universe and the spiritual elements of humanity.

Michael-Louis Smith, widely known as a jazz instrumentalist and composer, got his start as a young teenager singing the songs of Robert Hunter and Bob Dylan in places such as Caffe Lena in upstate New York. Inspired by a live performance of the band on his 14th Birthday at Madison Square Garden In 1991, he credits Garcia and the Dead among his earliest and most potent inspirations to become a musician.
