The four members of 19-Twenty stand on a stage with a packed audience behind them. The crowed is cheering and excited.


Hailing from the western suburbs of Melbourne/ Naarm. Deadnecks take the iconic music of The Grateful Dead and use it as a vehicle for their expansive jams rooted in psychedelic rock, blues, country and jazz. Known for their explosive live shows, inventive song transitions and a growing following of die hard deadheads in tow. Deadnecks are the only band in town that can get close to the long strange trip of The Grateful Dead’s songbook.

The band are playing Port Fairy Folk Festival off the back of their hugely successful “Jerry Day ’23” celebration show, which saw the biggest congregation of deadheads ever in Australia, where they recreated the Dead’s classic Bickershaw 72′ performance plus a bonus set of disco Dead. A 5 hour marathon show in the true spirit of the dead.
