Furthur

Furthur’s Red Rocks Weekend

Furthur announced late last weekend they're playing 2 nights at Red Rocks Amphitheater, just outside of Morrison, Colorado.  Furthur also announced a series of other shows, including a headliner at this year's Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco.  Other dates include stops in Eugene, Oregon, Santa Monica, California, Redmond, Washington and Las Vegas, Nevada.  This comes on the heels of their east coast tour, which features their headliner show at the Neteva Festival as well as the All Good Festival in West Virginia.

Post Furthur NYC show with Licorice

Licorice will be playing a post-Furthur show at the Sullivan Hall in New York City on February 23rd.  Their first set will start at 1AM and go into the night.   If you're looking for a fun post-Furthur show, here's your chance. Go check them out.

about Licorice:

On the heels of the release of their first studio EP, the critically acclaimed A Million Grains of Sand, Licorice's current momentum is exponential. They perform as a dynamic live force with David Lott (guitar, vocals), Matt Epstein (bass) and Josh Bloom (drums, vocals) at the core. The Brooklyn based rock outfit has displayed their musical chops on the world famous stages of The Blue Note, Knitting Factory, Brooklyn Academy of Music and other festivals and settings. They've shared the stage with legends and contemporaries, including: Larry Coryell, Roy Hargrove, Mike Dillon, and DJ Logic. Their songwriting, an amalgam of Americana, Blues, Jazz, and Rock, is the key vehicle to their original sound as a group, as they prove there are no musical boundaries. Together, they conquer complex originals, covers, jazz standards, and fusion 'episodes', on top of barn-burning rockers, anthems, and ballads - all with power, pocket and ease, with a cohesive and delicate touch. While they plan their next studio venture check them out live or online!

Furthur: From Blindness to Light | NYC

For the entire first set of Furthur at the horribly oversold Hammerstein Ballroom on Wednesday night December 9th, I could not see the band at all. Lucky me.

Furthur: Live at The Fox Theater | 9/20/09

One of the most anticipated shows of the Fall was Bob Weir and Phil Lesh’s new side project together called Furthur. The lineup also consists Dead keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Dark Star Orchestra lead guitarist and vocalist John Kadlecik. Dark Star Orchestra is considered the best Grateful Dead cover band in the country because of Kadlecik’s ability to sing in a very similar mellifluous voice like Jerry Garcia is part of his attraction to longtime Dead Heads.

Furthur: Weir, Lesh, Chimenti & Kadlecik

FURTHUR!

John Kadlecik, our lead guitarist and founding member of DS0, has been invited to join Furthur for a few dates in September. John has graciously accepted this invitation and is honored and thrilled to perform with Phil Lesh, Bob Weir and others. We wish him the best of luck with this project and cannot wait to see and hear John play with our heroes...for Furthur info click HERE.

johnAnnouncing More Tour Dates...

After some mountain air and pacific sun on the Rex Caravan Tour the band will take a few weeks off before returning to East Coast for an extensive tour. We are excited to revisit some of our favorite east coast haunts this fall. Check out DSO at the tour kick-off at the Palace Theatre in Albany, feel the brotherly love in Philly, celebrate DSO's 12th Anniversary in Hagerstown, wave that flag in DC, return to the scene of the crime in Ithaca or hit the big apple for two nights at the Nokia Theatre. The bus will be laying rubber all over the east coast and we hope you can come along for the ride!

Check out the full tour schedule HERE.
