I love that they are playing smaller venues. I would say much better than The Dead. If you are a fan of the Grateful Dead, go. You will have a Grate time! I have always been partial to The Other Ones, but Furthur ranks right behind them. It looks like Phil & Bobby are having a blast. I caught the second Chicago show and picked up tix for Columbus. They keep adding dates, so maybe they are coming to a venue close to you. Oh yeah, at $42 bucks a ticket, a great value I would say.

I have not seen them live yet, but I am considering seeing them in Lowell this summer but I won't lose any sleep if I don't make it. Despite that, I thought I would share some thoughts from my friends and my opinions based on what recordings I've listened to.

My friends who have gone have all given good reviews. One of my buddies thinks they are the best "post Jerry" line up.

I've listened to some shows on the archive and the new guitarist/vocalist is very similar to Jerry (He should seeing as he was "fake Jerry" in DSO). He's good too. Bob and Phil are signing their songs and some of the Jerry tunes, but John is taking most of the Jerry vocal leads.

What I've listened to on the archive sounds like the Dead of the late 80's. I always thought of Phil & Friends having more of the early 70's Dead sound and these days that's been my preference.

I like what they are doing. I think they are a excellent cover band of themselves. I like Phil and friends and The Dead both with Warren, who put his own twist on the songs. John is good but after seeing 388 (give or take 25 either way) Dead shows, after Jerry that was it.
They are worth the ticket price.

Have all the SBD's from the last tour + saw them in Portland OR. Definitely worth the time/money/distance to go and see them.
Better than "The Dead" tour last year (no slight on Warren).
Energy levels are high - very little lagging.
Great setlists. I love the Ryan Adams covers ("Magnolia Mountain", "Peaceful Valley").
JK really digs deep without playing Jerry note-for-note - but the vibe is there.
Female back up singers help nail the high notes & harmonies, but that in no way means anyone else is singing badly.

So, yeah, they ROCK!

If you like The Dead, you should go. They are alot of fun. Maybe the best best Post Jerry, up there with The Other Ones 98' and Phil Lesh 00'-03'. Check out the St. Stephen from the Wallingford,CT show of 12-11-09 I think it was. It rocks! Listening to that sold me. Im going to as many Furthur shows as possible. Man I wish ABB were doing at least a token outdoor tour this summer.

I saw them back in Feb in Hampton and they were great. Been a fan for 20 years, but never saw an incarnation of the band, except Jerry back in '94. Given that, I was very pleased.

I might go if tickets landed in my lap but I'm not going out of my way to see them. The Dead Spring Tour show I caught last year was really lame and Bobby was so bad with the Bros at the Beacon, I really don't want to roll the dice on these guys again. I'd rather see Phil come back with Jackie Green and Larry Cambell or perhaps a reunion with Warren and Jimmy H. some day ?

Agreed. Check out the second Chicago show on archive. 3.3.10. Thick show, full of classics and always a few nugs each show. I'm a big Quintet phan.

When Garcia died, the Grateful Dead we all knew and loved went with him. I saw The Dead with Warren and I really liked them. I love drums/space, and to me that's a big missing part without the Billy/Mickey component. The best post Grateful Dead lineup for me was the Dead with Jimmy Herring and Joan Osbourne in I think 2003?
I may go to the Nokia and see one of those shows.

what LittleWing said.

If you want to go and have unlimited fun with warm friendly folk, and great feedback from the band then this is the tour. Ticket prices are very fair, you absolutely get your moneys worth. Much better than last years with Warren(love Warren - just not for this band)

However, if you're a critical purist, you won't get it or enjoy it.....

I had fun reliving songs and memories from shows I've been to since 71- my old mum says 'didnt you outgrow that old hippy band yet'???

I'm going to the castle in Herkimer & hopefully penns peak if i can find a ticket!

WOW look at this lineup for Furthur during the Furthurfest next weekend. Oh baby that looks good. from jambase.com

UNPRECEDENTED LIVE PRESENTATION OF CLASSIC ALBUMS IN THEIR ENTIRETY

Phil & Bob in Furthur by Susan J. Weiand
Furthur will perform six classic Grateful Dead albums at Furthur Fest, taking place May 28-30 at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds in Angels Camp, CA. The schedule is:

Saturday Set I - American Beauty
Saturday Set II - Workingman's Dead
Saturday Set III - Anthem of the Sun
Sunday Set I - Blues For Allah
Sunday Set II - Aoxomoxoa
Sunday Set III - Terrapin Station

In an ongoing series of videos discussing these Grateful Dead albums, the latest installment features Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, along with kindred spirit-turned-intrepid-interviewer Jackie Greene and longtime Grateful Dead road manager Rock Scully, talking about the creation of Workingman's Dead. The quality of the songs Jerry was bringing to the table, along with the influence of Crosby, Stills and Nash, are revealed as two of the biggest inspirations behind the 1970 classic. Check out the video and the earlier discussion of American Beauty here.

Furthur will do an "Open Aire Soundcheck" on Friday, May 28. The full Furthur Stage schedule for the weekend can be found here, and the schedule for the daytime Sunshine Stage is here. The schedule for the acoustic Dark Hollow Stage, curated by Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams has not been set, but the late night set for Friday will be an All-Star Jam Session and on Saturday night it's Galactic at what the fest has dubbed the "Frogtown Fillmore."

Hoping for the American Beauty and Workingman Dead sets I hope they have some of the people who sat in with Phil when he did it a few years ago. Should be a good time.

Like them? Yes, loved them. Great band, terrific sound. They nail the sound of the Grateful Dead better than any band since the Grateful Dead. Except for maybe the Other Ones.
How do they compare to Phil & Friends through the years? Depends. Better imo. I was not a huge fan of the noodling of Phil & Friends. WAY more direction with this band.
How's the guitar player they have? HUGE clone of Jerry. At times transcendent. Some times creepy he is so similar. As close to 70's Jerry since Jerry played guitar in the 70's
Is Bob singing? Yes. Most songs.
How's their sound live? EXACTLY like the Grateful Dead circa the 70s-80s.

any answers would be appreciated....


Sorry, answered questions directly after. Loved the show I saw.

Perhaps the best permutation of the Dead's music--since Jerry's passing-- I have seen to date.
