Guitarist Craig Marshall from Cubensis stops by to talk about his journey into the world of the Grateful Dead and having the music play the band. Since 1987, Los Angeles-based band Cubensis has carried the torch in celebration of one of America’s most beloved touring bands, the Grateful Dead. Cubensis sets out to re-create the Grateful Dead experience by emulating the spirit of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, and the rest of the legendary San Francisco jam band. Cubensis plays complete shows covering all eras of the Grateful Dead, and no night is ever the same. Cubensis is far more than just your standard cover band as they bring the magic and sounds to those longing for the live vibe that only the Grateful Dead was able to deliver.
We talk about the magick of the music and its lasting resonance in the world, having the music choose you to be a part of the ride, tapping into the spiritual flow, and a tone more! This a a heartfelt, sweet, and revealing look at one of the founding members of one of the most celebrated Grateful Dead tribute bands. You’re gonna dig it!!!
