Seventeen years ago in September, the iconic American rock band the Grateful Dead announced a well-thought but difficult decision. Without their fallen band mate Jerry Garcia, who had passed that August, they would not be able to continue touring as the band Grateful Dead. It was a tough choice to make as certain band members were divided about what should become of their future tours or even the possibility of continuing without Jerry.
Furthur has announced another Winter Tour on the front range of the Colorado Rockies, including their first gig the Ogden Theater in Denver and their 7th, 8th and 9th shows @ the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado (between Denver and Boulder).
This marks the 4th year in a row either Furthur or Phil and Friends (last Feb) will play the newly renovated venue.
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.
On December 6 - 9 Dark Star Orchestra's Rob Barraco will join Phil Lesh, Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring and John Molo for a return of Phil Lesh and Friends: The Q. This reunited all-star cast will perform four rare and intimate shows taking place at Phil's concert venue, Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA. With December 5-8 being the last four nights of DSO's Fall Tour, the Phil Lesh camp is sending their keyboardist, Jeff Chimenti of Furthur, to fill in for Rob Barraco.
