The Grateful Decedents, playing rock, reggae rock, blues rock, funk rock, classic rock, and ragnarok, feature 3Ls Greg Daly on vocals and Mina Khalil on electric guitar and vocals. The five musicians from the Louisville area started a band just to play Lawlapalooza this year.
Once onstage, the virtuosity of each member – the vocal prowess of Greg Daly, the face-melting techniques of guitarists Mina Khalil and Carl Koontz, the hard-hitting basslines of Darren Beckham, and the earthquaking kicks 'n snares courtesy of Jordan Daly – will fuse into a single entity and fill your ears with the truth. You will surely doubt whether you have ever truly used your ears before that moment.
And then, once their set is over, each member will slowly fade into transparency like Marty McFly and disappear into the ether forever, never to be seen again.
