American Beauty ...(the band), pays tribute to the Grateful Dead and the Jerry Garcia Band. We are inspired fans of the music whose lives have been intertwined with theirs for such a long, long time.  Born of the idea that Jerry and the Dead’s musical legacy lives on through us, we hope to move you to our rhythms and beats; a passionate outpouring of uplifting and classic favorite melodies that are sure to keep you coming ‘round for more.






“Once in a while you can get shown the light, in the strangest of places of places if you look at it right.”
