Since 1987, Los Angeles-based band Cubensis has carried the torch in celebration of one of America’s most beloved touring bands, the Grateful Dead. Cubensis sets out to re-create the Grateful Dead experience by emulating the sounds of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, and the rest of the legendary San Francisco jam band. Cubensis plays completly spontaneous shows covering all eras of the Grateful Dead, and no night is ever the same. Cubensis is far more than just your standard cover band as they bring the magic and sounds to those longing for the live vibe that only the Grateful Dead was able to deliver. "This is not imitation," cautions lead guitarist Craig Marshall, "This is the real deal. We're satisfying our musical curiosities like they did, by exploring improvisational frontiers. When you take a musical leap of faith, sometimes you land on the rocks, but sometimes you fly."
