Possibly one of the finest tribute bands on tour, Dark Star Orchestra is scheduled to perform at the Boulder Theater for two nights starting Friday, March 28. For over 16 years Dark Star Orchestra, also known to their fans as DSO, has been touring coast to coast paying homage to the music of the Grateful Dead. In fact the band is set to surpass the total number of concerts the Grateful Dead played, 2,318. DSO plans to hold their 2,318th concert in San Francisco on this very tour.
From a recent press release: “For over 16 years, Dark Star Orchestra has embodied the Grateful Dead’s live experience for fans both old and too young to have ever seen their own Grateful Dead show.”
“Numerous guest musicians have sat in with Dark Star Orchestra, including Phish’s Mike Gordon and Jon Fishman, Steve Kimock, Peter Rowan, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Keller Williams, Gov’t Mule’s Warren Haynes and every living member of the original Grateful Dead.”
Former Grateful Dead vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux said of DSO, “Playing with Dark Star Orchestra feels just exactly like it felt when I was playing with the Grateful Dead.”
If you are looking for some cool music in Boulder tonight, look no further. The Los Lonely Boys are performing at the Boulder Theater, doors are at 7:30 pm. Check out this Los Lonley Boys video from 2009 and enjoy the show.
Once again there is just so many great options for entertainment this New Year’s Eve that it can leave a jam band fan not knowing which way to turn. First to kick off was Yonder Mountain String Band at the Boulder Theater. They started their new year’s run on Friday with performances at the theater through New Year’s Eve. It should be noted that their performance at the Theater on Dec. 30th is a benefit for the Colorado Flood victims, good luck getting a ticket, the show has been sold out for weeks.
Here is a video of Kyle Hollingsworth prepping for the Broomfield shows:

The Disco Biscuits came to Colorado last week in support of the the first ever Feed The Rocks Earth Day Celebration at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Biscuits kicked off the three day set of shows at the Boulder Theater on Thursday April 25. The band sold three day passes and the Boulder Theater shows sold out far in advance. Biscuits fans traveled from far and wide to see the only US shows on the books for the rest of this year other than their July Camp Bisco festival in Patersonville, NY.
The Boulder Theater shows were packed full of dancing and smiling fans. GratefulWeb.com did a great review here. This set list is courtesy of GW.
