Loose With The Truth

Loose With The Truth – is a San Francisco Bay Area band playing the music of The Grateful Dead. All of us have been on the bus for several decades, and have deep connections with the music and the scene.  “LWTT” presents an authentic depiction of the San Francisco Sound over the years, with attention paid to the evolution of this style of music.  There is an emphasis on improvisation, creating fresh energy around the Grateful Dead songbook.  The Band started as part of Michael LaMacchia’s Crossroads Musical community in Mill Valley, CA and has received hands-on musical and spiritual coaching from Mark Karan from RatDog and LiveDead ’69. Featuring strong vocal harmonies, the band shares it’s collective magic with hypnotic jams and bone shaking dance grooves!

On behalf of the Placerville Earth Day Celebration Committee I would like to thank Loose With the Truth for your wonderful performance on Earth Day. Over the years we have had several Grateful Dead bands but you guys were the best and were a perfect finish for a perfect day. We had many compliments and it was nice to have met you all.

Hope to see you all again. If any of you are passing through feel free to drop by. Our 125 year old house is a great pit stop on the way to the Tahoe area!
