DeadPhish Orchestra

The DeadPhish Orchestra is a Grateful Dead/ Phish tribute band that is just as much fun as it sounds.

The Deadphish Orchestra is a quartet of Colorado musicians who, above all, are close friends who have played together for many years.

They had played Grateful Dead songs together, and they had played Phish songs together.  But they got to wondering what would happen if they tried to merge the music of these two bands, the Granddaddies and Daddies of the jamband scene. Members include: Paul “Lefty” Murin, Ted Tilton, Brian Adams, and Chris Sheldon.

While these two bands have their surface similarities, most fans realize that their actual musical styles are quite different. The Grateful Dead are an earthy, folky, bluesy band where Phish is sharper around the edges–funky and more aggressive. But both bands have an improvisational approach to their live shows, and it is in that spontaneity where the magic really happens.

The guys in DPO have posed themselves a unique challenge in merging the two styles. Setlists end up with segues that look like Divided Sky > Morning Dew > Divided Sky, or Help > Slip > Frankenstein. Or how about Mike’s Song > Stella Blue > Weekapaug Groove. Or even stranger, like My Friend, My Friend of the Devil…or It Must Have Been The Roses Are Free. You can see that between the vast repertoires of the two bands, the possibilities are endless.

It’s just about as much fun as humans are allowed to have.
