The Deadphish Orchestra is a quartet of Colorado musicians who, above all, are close friends and have played together for many years. They had played Grateful Dead and Phish songs together before merging the two bands together. These are the real granddaddies and daddies of the jamband scene!
The Grateful Dead are an earthy, folky, bluesy band where Phish is sharper around the edges: funky and more aggressive.
While these two bands have their surface similarities, most fans realize that their actual musical styles are quite different. Both bands do have an improvisational approach to their live shows, and it is in that spontaneity where the magic really happens.
The guys in Deadphish Orchestra have given themselves a unique challenge in merging the two styles.
Setlists end up with segues that are compelling and draw the audience in. 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.
