Dark Star Orchestra and All Good Presents announced today that the Dark Star Jubilee will be returning on Memorial Day Weekend, May 24-26, to Legend Valley in Thornville, OH, just 30 minutes east of Columbus.

On a mild January Friday night in Boulder, my photographer, Harvdog and I decided to skip the usual CU ragefest and check out Rocky Mountain Grateful Dead Revue performing the "Best Of Winterland" at our local Boulder Theater.

Dark Star Orchestra is beckoning to the spring with Spring Tour West 2013 starting in Colorado on March 28 with a rousing 4/20 conclusion set for Seattle. Along the way we'll include shows in Denver, San Diego and almost a full week around the Bay Area, while visiting some of our favorite venues as well as new ones, including Club Nokia in L.A.

Dark Star Orchestra is happy to announce the 2nd annual Dark Star Jubilee.  They could not wait until Labor Day so DSO is moving the Jubilee to Memorial Day Weekend. The festivities will take place on May 24-26, 2013 at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio (30 minutes East of Columbus).The Dark Star Jubilee will operate with the same philosophy as last year where the fans, bands, and crew co-exist as one.

Get out of the cold later on this winter and join us for the Jam in the Sand. This retreat to Jamaica is the perfect getaway gift for yourself and your favorite someone.We are really fired up for the Jam in the Sand.

Dark Star Orchestra, widely known as one of today's premier improvisational rock bands, will perform their show "Dark Star Orchestra: Recreating the Grateful Dead Experience" at The Egg Center for the Performing Arts in Albany, New York on Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 at 9:00pm. Jeff Chimenti (Furthur, Phil and Friends, Ratdog) will be filling in for Rob Barracco on keys.

Fans of the Grateful Dead have yet another reason to rejoice as the Dark Star Orchestra team has released a soundboard recording of the first set of their October 13, 2012 performance at The Fillmore in San Francisco.

In a move that excited many DSO and Furthur fans across the country, Phil and Friends have pulled off a trade for Rob Barraco, keyboardist for Dark Star Orchestra, sending keyboardist Jeff Chimenti to the chilly east coast to play four DSO dates in New York, Maine, and Massachusetts and Connecticut.
