This isn't a black tie affair, so throw on your tie-dyes and experience the most authentic Grateful Dead Tribute band to grace the stage! As you listen to Dark Star Orchestra, close your eyes and step back in time because when you hit up a Dark Star Orchestra Concert you'll swear you were walkin' through "Shakedown Street" yourself! These doppalgangars began their run in Chicago in 1997 as a brainstorm between two friends- John Kadlecik and the late Scott Larned. They quickly jumped from house band status to legends in 2004 when they played their 1000th show. Dark Star Orchestra consists of John Kadlecik taking the role of Jerry Garcia, Dino English taking the role of percussionist Bill Kreutzzmann, Rob Koritz beating a mean drumset and taking the role of Mickey Hart, Kevin Rosen playing bass and taking the role of Phil Lesh, Rob Eaton playing guitar and taking the role of Bob Weir and Rob Barraco on keyboards. If you were lucky enough to see a Grateful Dead Concert then grab yourself some Dark Star Orchestra tickets- you won't be able to tell the difference! These guys are so faithful to The Dead, they even tailor their shows to match original setlists at each venue. Those who have been to a Dark Star Orchestra show can tell you that DSO also arranges their music equipment according to the Greatful Dead era they're playing. Original members of the Grateful Dead, including Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Vince Welnuck, Tom Constante and vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux have accompanied DSO during many of their shows too! So if "the real deal" finds DSO noteworthy, you will too- peel yourself off your couch and click away, Dark Star Orchestra tickets are as priceless as a "China Cat Sunflower"! In addition, all tickets are guaranteed, and are typically 10 to 20 percent cheaper than the competition.
