The premier Grateful Dead tribute band returns to Detroit's Majestic Theater. Known for recreating Dead shows, song for song, Dark Star Orchestra is perhaps the next best thing to a time machine for transporting Dead heads back in time. Although the band does also create its own set lists and original tunes, there will undoubtedly be hundreds of folks on hand to sing along with whatever favorite tunes are played.
Performing to critical acclaim worldwide for nearly 15 years and over 2000 shows, Dark Star Orchestra continues the Grateful Dead concert experience. Their shows are built off the Dead’s extensive catalog and the talent of these 7 fine musicians. On any given night the band will perform a show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead's 30 years of extensive touring or use their catalog to program a unique set list for the show. This allows fans both young and old to share in the experience. By recreating set lists from the past, and by developing their own sets of Dead songs, Dark Star Orchestra offers a continually evolving artistic outlet within this musical canon. Honoring both the band and the fans, Dark Star Orchestra’s members seek out the unique style and sound of each era while simultaneously offering their own informed improvisations.
