What a long, strange trip it still is!
There's a band out on the highway -- For 32 years, and over 4000 performances, Cubensis has brought the sights and sounds of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead to Southern California and beyond! Join us for a family celebration of the music and culture that insures the Grateful Dead’s community and spirit prevails. Cubensis is recognized as the longest continuously-performing Dead tribute in the nation!
Cubensis has been acclaimed for giving new life to the Grateful Dead's material, bringing in new styles, new innovations, and new jam band enthusiasts, while at the same time remaining loyal to the original music and the original fans. The band is a study in ensemble playing, and its members feed off each other's energy, pushing one another into high gear with integrated parts that answer and complement each other.
Below you'll find a quick-access main calendar, plus a section with significant upcoming shows highlighted and detailed. Check back often for updates, and feel free to explore the rest of the site! As a fan once said, "There ain't no place I'd rather be!"
