Dark Star Orchestra Plays Drive-In Show In New York


Dark Star Orchestra performed a drive-in style show on Friday at Roseland Waterpark in Canandaigua, New York. The Grateful Dead tribute band delivered two sets of Dead classics and a four-song encore for the socially distanced crowd.

DSO got the show underway with “Cold Rain And Snow” followed by “Cassidy” and “Dire Wolf.” “Minglewood Blues” and “Jack-A-Roe” came ahead of Bob Dylan’s “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues.” Dark Star then delivered the latter day Dead tune, “Blow Away.” “Looks Like Rain” and “Bird Song” came next before set closer “The Music Never Stopped.”


DSO kicked off the second set with the classic trifecta of “Help On The Way” > “Slipknot!” > “Franklin’s Tower.” “Man Smart, Woman Smarter” followed by “Mission In The Rain” led the group into “Drums” and “Space.” DSO would emerge with “Throwing Stones” and “Morning Dew.” The band closed out the set with The Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”

Dark Star Orchestra came back out with “Sunrise,” a song GD only played between 1977 and ‘78, as per The Setlist Program. DSO continued on with “New Speedway Boogie” and “Nobody’s Fault But Mine.” The band would bring the evening to a close with the Chuck Berry classic “Johnny B. Goode.”
