Boulder, Colorado’s own DeadPhish Orchestra has been taking the national tribute act scene by storm with their unique presentation of Grateful Dead and Phish songs performed seamlessly in ways never heard before. DeadPhish Orchestra (or DPO, as they are referred to by their fans and buyers alike) is a quartet of close friends and professional musicians having toured nationally with projects like PHIX and The Great American Taxi.
One day, these close friends got to wondering what would happen if they tried to merge the music of the two greatest jam bands, the Granddaddies and Daddies of the jam band scene.
Since that fateful day, DPO has continued to perfect their unique musical marriage and, in the process, have struck a meaningful chord with an eager fan base packing clubs and small theaters nationwide in a very short amount of time.
DPO does both kinds, Dead and Phish.
