Come out and see Dark Star Orchestra Perform Grateful Dead’s Music Live in Concert as they recreate Historic Shows this December 30th and 31st at the Electric Factory!
Presenting its critically acclaimed live show to Deadheads both young and old, Dark Star Orchestra will perform for a two-night, New Years Eve special event. Singer, songwriter and guitarist, Keller Williams will open that Friday night with the entire band playing Saturday.
Dark Star Orchestra is made up of Jeff Mattson (Jerry Garcia), Lisa Mackey (Donna Jean Godchaux), Dino English (Bill Kreutzmann), Rob Koritz (Mickey Hart), Skip Vangelas (Phil Lesh), Rob Eaton (Bob Weir) and Rob Barraco (multiple keyboardists). Dark Star Orchestra does not try to match Grateful Dead live songs note for note. Anything so formulaic would quickly dispel the free spirit embodied in the music.
Doors open at 7:30PM, Show Starts at 8:00PM!
