Grateful Dead tribute act Dark Star Orchestra returns to Grass Valley with a concert at Veterans Memorial Auditorium Friday presented by The Center for the Arts.

For 15 years, Dark Star Orchestra has toured the nation clocking in over 2,200 shows.

The band’s determined commitment to “raise the Dead” has drawn national media attention. Dark Star Orchestra’s critically acclaimed shows are based on a set list of Grateful Dead songs, a 30-year catalogue from extensive touring.



Music fans both young and old follow shows from coast to coast and internationally. The band performs Grateful Dead classics in the same way that an orchestra interprets music of classical composers. Players capture the excitement and innovation of the original performances and compositions.

A Dark Star Orchestra show is like stepping back in time. The band adapts their stage positioning, vocal arrangements, specific musical equipment and instruments to fit the era of the show they are performing. Five original members of the Grateful Dead have played alongside Dark Star Orchestra.




“Playing with Dark Star Orchestra is something that feels just exactly like it felt when I was playing with the Grateful Dead,” said Donna Jean Godchaux-McKay, Grateful Dead vocalist.
