Rock & Rye
Tribute BandsBlues/Classic Rock/Folk/Jam Band
Rock & Rye is a Grateful Dead tribute band from Chicago that has played and headlined festivals and venues in and around Chicagoland since 2014. The group pulls influence from the Grateful Dead’s vast catalogue of originals and covers, including from Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, and The Beatles. They can play everything from acoustic to high energy electric sets. Rock & Rye tries to recreate the Grateful Dead's diverse repertoire of music while upholding the fun and free-spirited mindset from which it was initially created.
Set lists are never the same from show to show. And we occasionally recreate exact set lists from certain historical Grateful Dead shows. Below is an example set list we performed at Martyrs’ in Chicago, IL.
