They’re not just a Grateful Dead tribute band; they’re the Grateful Dead tribute band. Formed right here in Chicago, Dark Star Orchestra has been faithfully performing the jam band’s most loved songs and little known gems for 20 years, and from time to time, Dead members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir have even joined them on stage. As if sounding like the Grateful Dead wasn’t enough, DSO even goes so far as to recreate the Dead’s original set lists in some instances, and other times, they create their own from the Dead’s massive catalog of songs. If you were born too late to experience the Grateful Dead in their prime or want to relive that long, strange trip, Dark Star Orchestra will bring back many incredible memories and create plenty of new ones.

FOOD VENDORS ON-SITE: Genoa Italian Concessions, Leland Legends and Mimi’s Humble Pie
