Honoring the legacy of the Grateful Dead, the Fowler Blast Furnace Room welcomes The Englishtown Project, Sept. 27, 8:30 p.m. On Sept. 3, 1977, the Grateful Dead headlined one of the largest and most musically successful concerts of all time at Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J. In addition to the Dead, which had just completed its legendary 1977 tour featuring a batch of new material from Terrapin Station, the show also included New Riders of the Purple Sage and the good-time, southern rock Marshall Tucker Band. Featuring Rob Wolfson of Dead Sage, Michael Falzarano of Hot Tuna, Klyph Black of Zen Tricksters, Scott Guberman of Phil and Friends, Dave Diamond of Assembly of Dust, Tom Circosta of Dead On Live and Joanne Lediger of Stir Fried, this tribute extravaganza features healthy “doses” of selections from each band’s sets that day with a relaxed, festival style program. Tickets for this show are $15 advance and $20 day of show.

On Nov. 4, 7 p.m., the Musikfest Café presents The Wood Brothers. A roots music trio featuring brothers Chris (upright bass, vocals) and Oliver Wood (guitars, vocals) along with multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix, The Wood Brothers bring a distinctive flair to their union of folk, blues, gospel and jazz. Growing up in Boulder, Colo., Chris and Oliver were exposed to American roots music at a young age by their parents and eventually started their own individual music careers, with Chris finding widespread success in the ’90s as one-third of the adventurous jazz trio Medeski, Martin, & Wood and Oliver fronting the Atlanta-based funky roots combo King Johnson. In the mid-2000s, the two brothers’ musical paths intertwined, and they formed the Wood Brothers with Rix, signing to Blue Note Records and releasing their 2006 debut, Ways Not to Lose. In 2015, the album Paradise hit number one on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, followed by the group’s sixth recording, One Drop of Truth, released earlier this year. Tickets for the show are $30-$35.
