Joe Marcinek Assembles Stunning Array of Talent for Dead and Company Chicago After-Parties

Dead and Company roll into Wrigley Field for two nights smack dab in the middle of their summer/fall tour on September 17 & 18. With that in mind, Joe Marcinek has lined up the HVAC Pub for after-parties both nights. He just revealed part of the lineup for the Friday night show, and it is, well, ridiculous. Marcinek has a gift for rounding up some of the greatest musicians on the scene for shows from coast to coast, but these two nights should be epic as he assembles the next edition of The Dead Funk Summit.

For September 17: Joe Marcinek, guitar; Robert Walter (20th Congress), keyboards; Freekbass, bass; Jason Hann (SCI), drums, percussion; Justin-Lee Schultz, keyboards; Ola Timothy, bass; Ron Haynes (Game Changer Horns), trumpet; Johnny Showtime, trombone; Rick King, drums, percussion; and Skinnie Williams.

Joe adds:

Poster Coming in early for the group! Sept 17/18 I’m going for it! Dead and Co After Parties at the HVAC Pub will be insane. This is just the Friday night and there are other artists coming out not on this poster. Tickets will go on sale next week!

But… if you wanna support me directly and not pay any fees…

I’ve got less than 40 two night passes available. Message me if interested. $60 gets you in both nights plus a poster! You’ll be on my VIP Guest List! 

Really excited for these two shows! The Dead Funk Summit will be the Blueprint for things to come! A huge collection of talent from different worlds combining into a musical event that is unlike any other night. 

Plus Justin Lee Schultz y’all! Cannot wait for you to experience this! 

Please help us spread the word! Thank you so much!

Don’t know Justin-Lee Schultz yet? Check out this clip from a private show in Vegas with the Joe Marcinek Band during Joe’s tune “George Washington” with Ola Timothy on bass and Nikki Glaspie on drums:
