Dark Star Orchestra
Of all the bands paid tribute to, the Greatful Dead are among the most mirroredalongside, say, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and Led Zeppelin. Formed in Chicago more than a decade ago, Dark Star Orchestra have made a name for themselves playing the Deads tunestheyve even managed to obtain a curious following of Deadhead-replica groupies. The cover bands performances faithfully respect the original, right down to the last detail: songs are played exactly in order as the concert being portrayed (the original Greatful Dead concert date and venue is announced at the end of the show). Even though Jerry Garcia passed away just two years before Dark Star Orchestra formed, were sure hed totally dig their tie-die-hard devotion.
