The music of The Grateful Dead and Phish
merged into one unique concert experience,
featuring some of your favorite songs from Bertha to Harry Hood


Unlike any jam band you’ve seen before, the DeadPhish Orchestra masterfully merge the music of The Grateful Dead and Phish into one unique concert experience. Through carefully crafted segues, the DeadPhish Orchestra take on the folksy, bluesy sounds of the Grateful Dead and the aggressive funkiness of Phish and create a sound all their own. This season at The Lyric Theatre, the Colorado quartet will play some of your favorite songs from Bertha to Harry Hood and more.

What began as a group of friends playing some of their favorite Phish songs together in Colorado developed into one of the most unique tribute bands active today. The DeadPhish Orchestra has toured across the country, from Redwood City, California to Boca Raton. The talented quartet has welcomed a number of guest musicians to perform with them, including members of the String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain String Band, and the Heavy Pets. Their cleverly designed performances and palpable passion for music allow audiences to experience all the best of jam music in one show.

Featuring Paul Murin on guitar, Ted Tilton on keyboards, Brian Adams on bass, and Chris Sheldon on drums, the DeadPhish Orchestra will perform some of the greatest hits from the Grateful Dead and Phish on The Lyric stage this season. With set lists that transition seamlessly between artists, such as Divided Sky > Morning Dew > Divided Sky, the DeadPhish Orchestra celebrate the spontaneity and improvisation that makes jam music so memorable.
