Rolling Thunder Revival is celebrating a decade of interpreting the incredible songs of Bob Dylan. Filtered through the lens of long time New England jam musicians, including members of Max Creek, Rolling Thunder brings a fresh, but somehow familiar take to this classic material. In 2011, as the web of social media widened, guitarist Jeff Martinson saw that longtime Dylan bassist, backup vocalist, and musical director Rob Stoner had a new profile. Martinson did would any self-respecting Dylan fan might--he sent him a direct message saying essentially, "please tell me everything, and, do you wanna jam?" Stoner obliged. Tributes are ubiquitous. But Rolling Thunder Revival is unpredictable--delivering high energy sets of both well-known and deep cut Dylan with the energy and passion of the original multi-ring Rolling Thunder circus. You'll be invited to sing along, dance, and, as always, marvel at the wonder of one of the greatest songwriters ever to grace planet Earth.
At Dead of Summer, Rolling Thunder Revival features: Scott Murawski (Max Creek, Mike Gordon Band, Billy Kreutzmann Trio), Bill Carbone, Kate Hubbard, Jeff Martinson, Jeff Bowen and rotating special guests.

Dead Man’s Waltz (formerly Steal Your Peach) is a six piece group that explores and celebrates the music of The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers Band and The Band. With two powerhouse drummers DMW echoes the line-ups while effortlessly interweaving the grooves and jams of all three iconic bands creating a unique musical experience. Dead Man’s Waltz is an all star collective comprised of seasoned, like minded professional musicians. The DMW lineup includes members of The Rev Tor Band, Entrain, Arukah, Raisinhead, Soul Sky and The Stone Revival Band. Members of DMW have shared the stage with members of The Grateful Dead, Dead and Co., The Allman Brothers Band, Phish and MOE. Dead Man’s Waltz is dedicated to presenting the music of The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band and The Band with genuine respect to the original while not being afraid to interject a little bit of their own in to the mix. This is the free spirited approach the music demands and allows them the freedom to perform a unique and new set list at every show.
In those rare instances that a band reaches its fifth decade, it’s usually a result of stardom In 50 years Max Creek has been small, big, regionally-huge, medium, and any other size one can think of; they’ve never graced the cover of Rolling Stone, but you’d be hard pressed to find a music fan in the Northeast that hadn’t heard of them. Creek is also much more engaging than the average band, sculpting lengthy shows on-the-fly from their 200+ song catalog with rockers, ballads, deep jams and crowd sing-alongs all tucked into their perfect places. Creek itself is multigenerational. Though the“front line” of guitarist Scott Murawski, keyboardist Mark Mercier and bassist John Rider has remained intact since the mid-70s, the current drums and percussion team of Bill Carbone and Jamemurrell Stanley weren’t even born when Max Creek was founded.
