About Dead Sky

A one-off night of Grateful Dead music at the Filling Station in Bozeman, Montana unexpectedly inspired the creation of dedicated tribute project Dead Sky, featuring three-part harmonies, an ever-expanding repertoire, and a passion for the music and the culture of the Dead.

Since January 2019, Dead Sky has made it their mission to spread the good vibe and camaraderie of the Grateful Dead to old and new Deadheads alike. As veterans of the Montana jam band scene, the members of Dead Sky continue to bring their musicality, energy, and gift for improvisation to an ever growing fan base that is quickly reaching outside the borders of Montana. 

Formed by guitarist Joe Knapp, this six-piece band features Kelly Nicholson (vocals), Luke Flansburg (vocals/lead guitar), Jess Atkins (vocals/lead guitar), Joe Kirchner (keys), Rich Robiscoe (bass), and Joe Sheehan (drums). You may recognize these musicians from other Bozeman bands such as Pinky and the Floyd, MOTH, Tsunami Funk, Hooligans, Cure for the Common, Dusty Pockets, and Kelly Nicholson Band. 

Dead Sky has played venues such as The Elm (Bozeman, MT), The State Room (Salt Lake City, UT), Top Hat (Missoula, MT), and Bozeman’s annual Sweet Pea Festival. For booking inquiries, email
