Oh He Dead Acoustic Concert


 
There's a little bit of magic and a whole lot of love in the rock 'n soul band Oh He Dead.   Founded in 2014 by Andy Valenti and C.J. Johnson, the now five-piece group creates an "infectious and soulful sound."
 
The way in which C.J. "...maneuvers her powerful voice — a combination of Stevie Nicks and Tracy Chapman" (NPR), in conjunction with the deft guitaring of Alex Salser and the arresting harmonies of Andy Valenti, is quickly garnering national attention.  Mixing in healthy doses of classic R&B vibes, funk, and folk, it is no wonder that when attending a show, one can't help but "... bop and sing along with band members to this infectiously groovy tunes" (All Songs Considered).
