There will be no seating at this location.

Formed by conductor Tim Sullivan in 2015, The Maine Dead Project offers a broad repertoire of Grateful Dead Classics through energetic musical performances and a unique interpretation. Each member brings their own musical background to the group and, as a collective, MDP puts its own imprint based on improvisation on the timeless music of the “Dead”.

The band members shared the stage with Cyril Neville (Neville Brothers), Warren Haynes, John Popper (Blues Traveler), Chris Barron (Spin Doctors), Tom Constantin (Grateful Dead), Mean Willie Green (Neville Brothers), Jeff Watkins (James Brown Band), The New Orleans Suspects, members of Strangefolk, members of the Trey Anastasio Band, and more. MDP is known for covering all of Grateful Dead’s historic shows from start to finish.

In the event of inclement weather only, this concert will be moved to the third floor of the Johnson Hall theater (entrance on Mechanic Street).

Only in the event of an indoor show, Johnson Hall management will require all members of the public and staff to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test from the past 48 hours, as well as a corresponding photo ID, in order to enter the room.

Proof of vaccination can be your physical vaccination card or a photo of your card, and children under 12 are exempt from the policy. If you do not wish to enter the building, your ticket will be refunded.
