Drummer STEVE HARRIS continues his battle with cancer and will be joining
the band whenever his health allows. Please hold
him up in love, prayer and positive thoughts.

"Cubensis plays with the same laid-back mastery as the Real McCoy" - LA WEEKLY.
Cubensis celebrates the Grateful Dead concert experience.
Like the Dead, the band plays a wondrous amalgam of
