Dark Star Orchestra
Continuing the Grateful Dead Concert Experience

The “gold standard” of cover bands, the Dark Star Orchestra recreates historic Grateful Dead set lists with compelling and uncanny accuracy. Each night, this Chicago-based band decides on performing one show from the over 2,500 that the Dead performed during their 30-year tenure as the fathers of improvisational rock.




“Quite possibly the most talented and accomplished tribute band out there... they've definitely mastered their inspiration's vagabond nature.” – Rolling Stone

“...recreates the Dead concert experience with uncanny verisimilitude. In fact, Dark Star Orchestra often sounds more like the Dead than the Dead sometimes did...” – Chicago Tribune/Andy Argyrakis
