Grateful Dead Tribute Band the China Cats
Grateful Dead Tribute Band the China Cats
"The China Cats aren’t a cover band," says Nicholas Meriwether, archivist of the Grateful Dead collection at UC Santa Cruz. "They approach the Dead’s work with same kind of reverence and sophistication that the Dead themselves showed in their own forays into American roots music."

"When you listen the Cats," Meriweather adds, "old favorites take on new lives, revealing facets that will delight and amaze even jaded listeners. These guys aren’t copycats — their sets demonstrate how the Dead’s music now is a part of the great American songbook, alongside the giants who first inspired the Dead."


"I had a fine time and enjoyed the music very much."
— Rock Scully, former manager, Grateful Dead

"A spot-on, outstanding Grateful Dead Tribute band"
— Tom Miller, booking agent, Don Quixote's, Felton, CA

"If you noticed a couple of ol' greyhairs threading through the dancers in front of the stage just before your closing song, by dancing themselves, that was me and my friend :) Loved your rendition of the music of the GD. Keep on keepin'"
— Alan Trist, Ice Nine Publishing
