Dark Star Orchestras shows are built off the extensive catalog of the Grateful Dead. On any given night the band will perform a show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead’s 30 years of extensive touring or use the catalog of original songs and often played covers to create a unique set list for the show. This allows music fans both young and old to share in the experience. Dark Star Orchestra presents its critically acclaimed live show at esteemed venues from coast to coast and internationally. Grateful Dead classics are performed in the same way that an orchestra interprets music of classical composers. The composer spirit is derived and channeled as the players capture the excitement and innovation of the original performances and compositions.

“Fanatical attention to detail.” Rolling Stone
“Dark Star Orchestra takes its act to a level of detail that befits a rock band famous for its fanatical following.” Associated Press
“The hottest Grateful Dead tribute act. A cover band for people who don’t like cover bands.” The Washington Post
NiteFall is one of the hottest, rock/dance bands on the Wasatch front. They take pride in recreating the big, “Arena-Rock” sound of such classic bands as Journey, Styx, Boston and many others. Throw in some standard dance and funk tunes, and these guys can bring the house down wherever they play!
NiteFall’s high energy stage performance, coupled with killer vocal harmonies are reminiscent of the big rock bands from the seventies and eighties.
These talented guys take their sound very seriously. NiteFall’s blistering vocals, hard-edged guitars and dead-on keyboards will keep you coming back for more. This is one band you don’t want to miss!
The Peppermill Concert Hall presents the Marshall Tucker Band Saturday March 26, 2011 at 7pm.
The Marshall Tucker Band is an American Southern rock band originally from Spartanburg, South Carolina. The band’s blend of rock, rhythm and blues, jazz, country, and gospel helped establish the Southern rock genre in the early 1970s. While the band had reached the height of its commercial success by the end of the decade, the band has recorded and performed continuously under various lineups for nearly 40 years.
The original lineup of the Marshall Tucker Band, formed in 1972, included lead guitarist, vocalist, and primary songwriter Toy Caldwell (1947–1993), keyboard player and vocalist Doug Gray (b. 1948), flutist Jerry Eubanks (b. 1950), rhythm guitarist George McCorkle (1946–2007), drummer Paul Riddle (b. 1953), and bassist Tommy Caldwell (1949–1980). They signed with Capricorn Records and in 1973 released their first LP, The Marshall Tucker Band. After Tommy Caldwell was killed in an automobile accident in 1980, he was replaced by bassist Franklin Wilkie. Most of the original band members had left by the mid-1980s to pursue other projects. The band’s lineup as of 2009 consists of Gray on vocals, guitarist Stuart Swanlund, keyboard player and flutist Marcus James Henderson, guitarist Rick Willis, bassist Pat Elwood, and drummer B.B. Borden.
