Dark Star Orchestra

“Continuing the Grateful Dead Experience”

Dark Star Orchestras shows are built off the extensive

catalog of the

Grateful Dead. On any given night the band will perform a show based on a

set list from the Grateful Dead’s 30 years of extensive touring or use the

catalog of original songs and often played covers to create a unique set

list for the show. This allows music fans both young and old to share in the

experience. Dark Star Orchestra presents its critically acclaimed live show

at esteemed venues from coast to coast and internationally. Grateful Dead

classics are performed in the same way that an orchestra interprets music of

classical composers. The composer spirit is derived and channeled as the

players capture the excitement and innovation of the original performances

and compositions.

Touring nationwide for eleven years to the tune of over 1800 shows since

forming, the band’s determined commitment to “raising the Dead” has drawn

national media attention.

“Fanatical attention to detail.” Rolling Stone

“Dark Star Orchestra takes its act to a level of detail that befits a rock

band famous for its fanatical following.” Associated Press

Critics aren’t the only ones singing Dark Star Orchestra’s praises. Five

original members of the Grateful Dead have played alongside DSO and have had

this to say:

“Playing with Dark Star Orchestra is something that feels just exactly like

it felt when I was playing with the Grateful Dead.” Donna Jean

Godchaux-McKay, Grateful Dead vocalist, frequent DSO guest.

This is an ALL AGES show
