Dark Star Orchestra is returning to the Birmingham's Avondale Brewing Company on Sunday, April 8, 2018! Tickets go on sale this Friday, Dec. 15 at 10 am. Those who have had a chance to catch a DSO show will attest that this is a 'can't miss occasion' for any Dead fan. The perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite Grateful Dead fan! Tickets available at www.avondalebrewing.com.
Using entire shows from the Grateful Dead’s decades of touring as a launching pad, Dark Star Orchestra recreates song for song performances straight from historic set lists. Not merely mimicking the Dead, DSO instead seeks the individual style of each era and offers its own interpretations and improvisations for a group famed and loved for their interpretations and improvisations.
Having toured worldwide to the tune of over 2000 shows, Dark Star Orchestra’s determined commitment to ‘raising the Dead’ has drawn them much critical acclaim. Dark Star Orchestra isn’t a cover band. Its shows are not even meant as tributes. What Dark Star Orchestra achieves is a continuation of the spirit of what has now become over forty years of the Grateful Dead’s timeless music.
