About This Event

CUBENSIS, the band that plays Dead, had its beginnings in 1987 when a group of Deadhead musicians became frustrated with the Deads all-too-infrequent visits to Southern California. To fill the gap, guitarist Craig Marshall assembled a group and began to perform at backyard parties and local bars, initially appearing as Sugar Cubensis until being repeatedly mistaken for Bjorks band the Sugar Cubes. For clarity the name was pared down to just Cubensis.Soon, word got around about this outfit, who used the Deads music as a skeletal framework for their own improvisational explorations. To this day, you would have a difficult time calling CUBENSIS a Dead Cover Band without admitting they have tapped into the same inspirational wellspring as the Masters themselves. As the LA WEEKLY observes, Cubensis plays with the same laid-back mastery as the Real McCoy. Big Brother Skateboard magazine crowned Cubensis as the nations premiere Dead tribute in their January, 2002 issue.The Los Angeles-based group has carried the torch in celebration of one of Americas most beloved touring bands. CUBENSIS brings the original, organic Grateful Dead concert experience back to life. Drawing from all eras of the Dead, the band performs improvised sets of Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band classics that retain all the spontaneous exploratory jamming for which the bands were renown. However, the music produced is uniquely Cubensis. Accordingly, the group has been acclaimed for giving new life to the Grateful Deads material, bringing in new styles, new innovations, and new jam band enthusiasts, while at the same time remaining loyal to the original music and the original fans.Now celebrating their 30th anniversary, CUBENSIS has been privileged to be joined onstage by numerous rock superstars, including Chris Robinson and Marc Ford (Black Crowes), Warren Haynes (Phil s major venues, including an amazing 50+ performances the House of Blues in Hollywood, Anaheim and Las Vegas.
