Huntington, N.Y. (January 4, 2016) – The Paramount in Huntington, Long Island, New York announces our version of a tribute concert for the 50th Anniversary of legendary jam band – The Grateful Dead – on February 26th as we bring two of the best local Grateful Dead cover bands together on stage in one great show when The Paramount Tribute Series Presents “Grateful Overkill” A Tribute to the 50th Anniversary of The Grateful Dead – Featuring Reckoning & Half Step.

Half Step is a group of dedicated fans & students of the Grateful Dead, capturing the spirit, improvisation, sound & complexity of Grateful Dead music.  Established in 2004 on Long Island, Half Step has been mastering their craft while winning over crowds of veteran Deadheads, newcomers and non-Dead fans alike.  What makes Half Step stand out from the rest? Like the Grateful Dead themselves, the band is constantly pushing the envelope, growing together as musicians and performers.

Reckoning reflects the songs of the Grateful Dead by exploring new musical innovations. Each show is unique and performed with passion, joy, sadness and bliss. They express emotions through improvisation while breathing new life into timeless classics. Reckoning began in 1990 on Long Island, NY and has played over 2,000 shows at festivals, theatres and clubs in the Northeast area.
