Dark Star Orchestra Summer Tour 2019, presented by The Couri Family
Described by The Washington Post as "The hottest Grateful Dead tribute act. A cover band for people who don't like cover bands," Dark Star Orchestra passionately channels the free spirit of The Grateful Dead rather than simply performing their hits note by note. The band performs each show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead's 30 years of extensive touring or use their catalog to program a unique set list for the show. This allows fans both young and old to share in the experience. By recreating set lists from the past, and by developing their own sets of Dead songs, Dark Star Orchestra offers a continually evolving artistic outlet within this musical canon. Honoring both the band and the fans, Dark Star Orchestra's members seek out the unique style and sound of each era while simultaneously offering their own informed improvisations.
