What we're about

Hello London Grateful Dead Fans and 70's Jam band lovers!

The purpose of this group is to offer musicians the opportunity to play Grateful Dead songs with others in a relaxed group situation. This meetup has been running now for several months with great results. Musicians connecting, working on improvisational chops and getting to know the rich catalogue of songs the Grateful Dead played.

Any kind of musician or singer who shares an interest in playing live Improvisational Rock and Blues songs inspired by originals and covers of the Grateful Dead is welcome. This includes all covers they played on tour, as well as songs in all the versions the band played over the years including their solo projects.

All sessions are recorded, and we share good takes to the attendees on Sound Cloud.


We host alternating Tuesday (Live Jam Experience) and Thursday (Acoustic Session) meetups in supportive and friendly venues.

Our acoustic jams tend to be laid back affairs with diverse tunes played. This gives great opportunities to share tips and enjoy playing the music together. Bring your acoustic instruments , your voice or simply come listen. Although we welcome all levels, musicians should be able to follow standard chord charts. (or just know the songs!) An Ipad with the OnSong App is very handy. You can also follow posted links for references. We run throught entire songs, working the "built-in" jams designed by the Grateful Dead. Song sheets and a set list are always available and printed for the jam.

The Tuesday night "Live Jam Experience" is played on stage in front of the public as well as "live streamed" to the Instagram followers: @typicaldaydream_uk. Being prepared and able to read through basic song sheets helps create good results.


Any style of instrument such as guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, ukulele, bass and percussions (or speaker/keyboards).
