About Us

SMRTRAVELED is a media hub for modern-day Deadheads. We document our travels following this band in a way that ties together the past, present, and future for an ever-evolving scene of music. Our passion lies in the music, our talents lie in photography, video, and writing. Through these mediums, we will weave together a story told through the eyes of the world.

 

We currently have produced a short film titled "I Need a Miracle", which followed us at the beginning of our strange trip to the "Fare Thee Well" shows in Chicago. We talked with the promoter, Peter Shapiro, as well as lifelong Grateful Dead biographer Dennis McNally. 

 

We also have been featured on Strangers Stopping Strangers Podcast Episode 67 discussing what brought the dead to us, where we see the music going, and promoting our helpful 2018 Summer Tour Guide.

Our website blog includes show reviews, historical analysis, and a limited supply of hand printed t-shirt, hoodies and other apparel.
