Dark Star Orchestra
The band’s popularity continued to soar, and they have developed a dedicated following. Sound familiar? The Grateful Dead “cover band” not only replicates the sound and the music of the Dead, but they do so in full and exact set lists from any of the previous (nearly) 2500 shows and from different eras of the Dead’s thirty year history, portraying each band member and each song precisely from that particular show. Former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Vince Welnick, Tom Constanten, Donna Godchaux and Phil Lesh have all made guest appearances at DSO shows, over 2200 and counting.
