Cosmic Charlie was born in the musical Mecca of Athens, Georgia. From summer 1999 inception, the band has been swiftly cementing its reputation as a band putting unique and personal twists on the Grateful Dead catalogue, and for folks that are ambivalent about Dead cover bands. Rather than mimicking the Dead exactly, Cosmic Charlie chooses to tap into the Dead’s energy and style as a foundation on which to build.
If you’re looking for a band to play Grateful Dead material and breath some life into it, Cosmic Charlie will rise to the task with breath of fire. Those precious moments during Dead jams when the synchronicity is there and all is right with the world, these are moments that Cosmic Charlie relishes and feverishly welcomes with open arms.
