Company Description

The Latin Dead is a musical enterprise fusing the music of the Grateful Dead with Latin Jazz, thereby inaugurating a novel musical marriage.  For the first time ever, a band is selling equity to the public so just as an executive producer contributes and retains ownership, the fans would be co-owners of the band.  These potential patrons are presented with a groundbreaking opportunity, open to anyone, to share in all forms of income received by the band whether it be live performance, merch sales, recording royalties or other new creative revenue streams.  

Management Team / Advisory Board Bios

Brenden D. Tacon began his musical career in New York, circa 2005, playing percussion both locally and touring nationally with various groups and genres including Latin Jazz, Salsa, Reggae and Indie-Electro. He has studied with several master percussionists, highlighted by a tenure under Arturo O’Farrill at the Purchase Music Conservatory. Having had the opportunity to accompany many of the established NY Latin musicians and bandleaders, he gained the necessary experience to launch a venture as ambitious as The Latin Dead. He has published a book of poetry and earned a Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree from Purchase College. Brenden currently holds a position at Digital Capital Management in La Jolla, CA where he resides with his wife.

Christopher Markisz, also known as Dub Sonata, is a music producer from New York City.

His compositions have appeared in campaigns for Victoria’s Secret, Time, Inc., and most recently on HBO’s Emmy-nominated series Insecure. He is one half of the electronic duo Evening Elevator.
