Deadheads: Who are you? Where are you?
Sign up and let's stay in touch!
Jerry died, I stopped listening to music. Cubensis brought me back, not
from the Dead, but to the Dead."“"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.”
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
“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 has contracted
additional cancer and will be leaving the band for
now to concentrate on his health. 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
shows are alike. As with all improvisational jambands, every Cubensis performance is an ongoing experiment.
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 dogs John Cripe & Alex Jordan plus
countless crew/volunteers/friends over the years.
to our gifted 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!
