“Wisely eschewing the tendency to step into character the Cosmic Charlies let the music do the talking: they’re a tribute band in the true sense of the word, not a doppelganger outfit. That means you don’t get note perfect renditions of songs like Scarlet Begonias, Sugaree or Terrapin Station, but you do get a splendid approximation of a Dead-like musical journey complete with spacey improvisations that, eyes closed, are amazingly convincing.” – Record Collector.
The Cosmic Charlies are Europe’s premier Grateful Dead tribute band. We have been playing together in a multitude of different lineups since 1988 and continue to do so, stronger than ever before. We do not claim to perfectly recreate a Dead concert, but we do promise to harness some of the musical energy and spirit that made the Dead so unique.
