Steal Your Sunday: feat. The Mini Wall of Sound!
Run Time: 260 min.
Don’t miss this special edition of Steal Your Sunday, featuring Anthony Coscia’s 1/4 scale Wall of Sound! Proceeds from this show will go towards the completion of a 1/2 scale Wall of Sound, which will be a permanent installation at a venue to be determined in the near future.
Approximately 8 months ago, Connecticut-based luthier and Deadhead, Anthony Coscia, built a fully-functional 1/6 scale replica of the Grateful Dead’s infamous Wall of Sound (pictured below, as as featured in the Wall Street Journal).
The progress was documented and shared via social media, and the interest in the project grew rapidly, with over 750,000 people having seen content from the original projects. In the spring of 2021, it was featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Various publications and radio shows have done interviews about the project. Those include Fretboard Journal, Liveforlivemusic.com, Tales From the Golden Road, Dean Delray, and others. Anthony harnessed this momentum into a 1/4 scale version of the Wall, which stands approximately 10′ tall and 14′ wide. Now, Anthony has his sights set on a 1/2 scale replica.
What started as a side project to gauge interest in rebuilding The Wall of Sound has quickly evolved into a full-fledged plan to accomplish the project in stages. Unfortunately, each larger scale increases in size and cost, exponentially, and it is no longer feasible for Anthony to finance these projects alone. Anthony is currently raising money to fund the completion of a 1/2 scale Wall of Sound, which will ultimately live as a permanent installation at a venue to be determined.
Join us on January 30, 2022, to witness Anthony’s 1/4 scale Wall of Sound in action, featuring Zoetropolis’ own resident Dead band, W.W.J.D? playing through it. Learn more about this project on Instagram, Facebook, and follow Anthony’s GoFundMe Here.
