A special ACOUSTIC evening with Dark Star Orchestra!
In existence for over a decade, Dark Star Orchestra’s determined commitment to ‘raising the Dead’ has drawn nationwide attention. Critics sing Dark Star Orchestra’s praises. "Quite possibly the most talented and accomplished tribute band out there... they've definitely mastered their inspiration's vagabond nature." – RollingStone.com.
Original members of the Grateful Dead have played alongside DSO: “A couple of times when I had my back to John onstage and he started to sing, I had this weird sense that it was Jerry.” – Bob Weir, Grateful Dead co-founder/vocalist/guitarist, frequent DSO guest
Offering an artistic outlet for the Grateful Dead’s music, the Dark Star Orchestra seeks out the unique style of each performance era of the Grateful Dead’s remarkable history. While the musicians offer their own interpretations and improvisations at each show, they use original set lists from the Grateful Dead’s tours. This way they create song for song reproductions of Grateful Dead concerts and provide an original experience.
Additionally the DSO designs the stage plot based on the year of Grateful Dead show to be performed, adapting phrasing, voice arrangements, and musical equipment to match. At the end of each performance, the band announces the date and venue where the original show took place.
DSO is made up of Jeff Mattson (Jerry Garcia), Lisa Mackey (Donna Jean Godchaux), Dino English (Bill Kreutzmann), Rob Koritz (Mickey Hart), Kevin Rosen (Phil Lesh), Rob Eaton (Bob Weir) and Rob Barraco (multiple keyboardists.
