Biography

For 35 years, a musical troupe called the Grateful Dead toured the nation, delighting thousands with their eclectic brand of American rock n’ roll. Now, CUBENSIS brings the Grateful Dead concert experience back to life, performing a three-hour show that retains all the spontaneous exploratory jamming for which the Dead were renowned.

The band doesn't reproduce the songs note for note---though it would be hard for most listeners to tell. The music is highly improvisational, with rock, country and jazz influences. Cubensis members say there's room for interpretation while remaining authentic.

Cubensis has been acclaimed for giving new life to the Grateful Dead’s material, bringing in new styles, new innovations, and new jam band fans, while remaining loyal to the original music and the original fans. You won’t find the band wearing wigs and fake beards to re-create the Dead experience. They prefer to use the Dead's music and their own instrumental prowess to create a memorable, magical evening for audiences around the country.
