"I strongly encourage folk to check out "Cubensis"...fine musicians, good people, and one of the best Dead tribute bands
on the scene. Jerry was a good friend of mine...he would be proud of these guys." - Pete Sears, Moonalice, Jefferson Starship
 
"When Jerry died, I stopped listening to music.
Cubensis brought me back, not from the Dead, but to the Dead."
 
"Come out and experience the band's forte, which lies in its faithful rendering of Grateful Dead material,
both originals and covers, and the Grateful Dead's trademark style of improvisation."
 
"Thank you so much for an AMAZING show last night! There were some really creative and super funky
new jams like I've never heard before. That Loose Lucy bordered on the surreal!  The energy, cohesiveness,
and exciting sense of musical adventure was just brimming over, and to me is what sets you apart from all the rest.”
 
"Saturday's Lighthouse show was amazing!! A killer show to the 10th power! Wow, a grate set list and the Boys were on Fire...
the riffs between Craig & Nate were electrifying! The place was packed to the gills.. I am almost surprised we didn't get
shut down..!! it was impossible to move in there...The nice part was all the wonderful people there made
it easy and comfortable to get along with no hassles... we are truly a blessed phamily!"
 
“I'll be honest with you: I have never been a Deadhead. I have never even considered being a Deadhead.
I never understood the Deadhead phenomenon. I can't imagine why anyone would still be a Deadhead
 years after the band stopped being a band. And yet, I enjoyed the scene at Cubensis.
The music was great and the crowd was mellow. People danced together,
and they danced alone...it didn't matter. All that mattered was the music.”
 
 
 
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 blues, country, jazz, electronic and rock and roll, all in the space of about three hours
on stage. No two shows are alike. As with all improvisational jambands, every Cubensis performance is an ongoing experiment.
All eras of the Dead are represented, plus selections from the Jerry Garcia Band. Truly, there is nothing like a Cubensis show!!

For "help on the way," Cubensis salutes our Deadicated and hardworking crew:
merch lady B.J. Kovach, soundman John Murchison, audio archivist Wayne Stielau,
videographer Tibor "Grunzy" Grunsfeld, road dog John Cripe  plus
countless crew/volunteers/friends over the years. Special thanks to our gifted graphic artist Darrin Brenner.
 
As always, ultimate props to all the members of the Grateful Dead.

Cubensis commentary: The band plays weekly shows that are sometimes only marginally profitable,
all because we believe in the "community" of Deadheads and getting together regularly.
Please support these shows with your faithful attendance whenever you can!
