2007 was another amazing year for Dark Star Orchestra so let's take a second to look back at the band's top 10 highlights of the year:

-Adding Rob Barraco to DSO full-time on keyboards and vocals

-Raising over $22,000 for the Rex Foundation during the DSO Rex Caravan Tour of the West Coast

-Celebrating our 10-year anniversary since forming on a cold November 1997 night in Chicago: what a long strange trip it's been!

-Performing with Bob Weir at the Fillmore during the Black Tie Dye Ball to benefit the Rex Foundation

-Playing the 30th anniversary of 5/8/77, releasing the recordings as the 3-CD Ithaca: 30 Years Later

-Performing our first European dates at Amsterdam's Jam in the Dam festival alongside Yonder Mountain, Keller Williams and Galactic

-Finishing the year by selling out all four mid-Atlantic shows leading up to and including New Year's Eve

-Raising nearly $3000 for Rett Syndrome research at the 5th Annual GratefulFest Benefit Song Raffle, bringing the 5 year total to nearly $15,000 raised for Rett research!

-Launching the all new DarkStarOrchestra.net website

-Having the privilege of performing the Grateful Dead's timeless music to over 125,000 of the best fans nationwide

Dark Star Orchestra returning to Jam in the Dam

The jam is far from over and for those of you who missed out on Jam Cruise (or for those of you still left wanting more!) the Jam in the Dam festival is only a few short months away. DSO is playing a special show Saturday, March 15 at the Melkweg performing an entire 2 set show. Come out and join DSO, Umphrey's McGee, The Disco Biscuits, Perpetual Groove, Tea Leaf Green & Lotus for four nights of great music in Amsterdam, March 16-19.
