Marquee Theatre
February 23rd 2019
Set list was a Nov 73 Tempe show and it was rad! First time seeing them live and it wont be the last. Really great musicians, dressed to the nines with really an amazing sound radiating from the stage. The venue is hit&miss but this band was spot on that Thursday. Thank you

DSO is a fine concert for that Dead experience. The audience responded just like they would at any other Dead scene! The Warfield GA Area was packed and it was difficult to move; might consider reserved seats upstairs next time. The sound in the GA area about 2/3rds back from the stage was fantastic.

The band was an ‘11’, but the GA area of the Warfield was packed to the point where it was difficult to move. Maybe reserved seats is the way to go. Highly recommend DSO for a Dead experience

Incredible. They were so fluid and tuned in. There was so much energy and the execution was flawless.

Had a great time and met some real nice local and non local loving fellow Brothers and Sisters; you could feel the positive energy.
Half a star less than 5 only because whenever I opened my eyes Jerry, Bobby and boys weren’t actually there! This was my first DSO show and I had my premature doubts. I mean it’s basically a Dead cover band right? Not so as I was proven wrong. These guys are masters. To be able to play and capture live Grateful Dead as perfect as this band does is both amazing and a masterful accomplishment. The crowd certainly helped the experience as we all simply relived a Garcia-led Dead show because it’s just that close to those wonderful past experiences. The music, collaboration and chemistry was perfect and each musician reminds you of the original cast. Their individual, integral unique contributions reflect the playing mannerisms of the legendary musicians. Last night I spent quite a bit of time closing my eyes and wandering into the past with nothing short of an ear to ear grin. It’s probably unnecessary to say but it will not be my last DSO. Ps. They played the 11/5/1979 Philly Spectrum show (to the tee unless the Bobby flub wasn’t a reacted flub).
