Show Info

A very special 4-20 show with Cubensis and guests Grampas Grass plus the Barrel Fever Trio. Doors open at 7pm for an evening of dancing and merriment. Is it just a coincidence that the names of the bands seem refer to shrooms, weed and whiskey? CUBENSIS brings the Grateful Dead concert experience back to life. Drawing from all eras of the Dead, the band performs a three-hour set of Grateful Dead classics that retain all the spontaneous exploratory jamming for which the Dead were renown. However, the music produced is uniquely Cubensis. You won't find the band wearing wigs and fake beards to re-create the Dead experience, unlike Beatlemania. "We don't strive to play Dead tunes note-for-note," explains Cubensis guitarist Craig Marshall. "We use the music as a skeleton, and then we flesh it out with our own improvisations. The Dead did that every time they played, and we find it to be a perfect model for our shows. The fans agree. They love hearing Cubensis-flavored Dead." Cubensis has been pleased to find their most enthusiastic supporters are those who never got a chance to see the Grateful Dead in person, and wonder what they missed. Seasoned Deadheads come out to relive the great shows gone by, and as a result, the band is in great demand, performing EVERY FRIDAY at the Golden Sails Hotel and many other Southern California venues.
