The St. Augustine Amphitheatre welcomes the Dark Star Orchestra on Saturday, December 9, 2023, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Doors open at 5:00 p.m.
This tribute band covers the Grateful Dead's extensive catalog. Rolling Stone praises the band for their attention to detail (in the shows), stating that it is "fanatical."
Dark Star Orchestra's dedication to "raising the dead" takes them throughout the globe to perform thousands of shows. This band performs Grateful Dead classics in much the same way that an orchestra interprets music. The composer's spirit is derived and channeled as the band members capture the excitement and innovation of the original performances and compositions.
Dark Star Orchestra revisits Grateful Dead performances and introduces their music to younger, newer fans.
