It's difficult to tell that Furthur is fairly new with founding members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead leading the band. Furthur was founded in 2009 by Phil Lesh and Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead who recruited John Kadlecik of Dark Star Orchestra, Jeff Chimenti of RatDog, Joe Russo of the Benevento/Russo Duo and Jay Lane, who has since left to rejoin Primus. The lineup may be one of the reason why Furthur tickets sell like mad but the sound is the real attraction! With a mixture of jammy guitars, funky beats and resonating vocals, Furthur tickets are passes to some of the most authentic jam music around.
The band formed when Phil Lesh and Bob Weir decided to reunite for a select set of dates in 2008 with The Dead. Afterward the band announced the formation of Further with their current lineup (including Jay Lane) with a select set of dates. The band was so popular that Furthur tickets sold out almost instantly! Furthur performed two sold out New Years Eve Furthur dates that year, an event that has since become a tradition. With a handful of music festival tickets under their belts, Futhur has become one of the best-selling jam band tickets of the decade with Furthur tickets joining the ranks of the Phish reunion and Primus reunion.
The 2017 Further tour schedule is available now. Further still sounds like the Dead but are keen on keeping things fresh by regularly adding new material and playing Beatles, Stones, Dylan, Floyd and Clash covers in their unique style in addition to Grateful Dead rarities. Fan site otherones.net tallied Furthur setlists and determined that 63% of the songs played were written by the Grateful Dead with the remainder of their setlists being a mix of originals and covers by band members other artists.
