Grass For That Ass ft. Dead Phish Orchestra and She Said String Band

Dead Phish Orchestra

The Deadphish Orchestra is a quartet of Colorado musicians who, above all, are close friends who have played together for many years. They had played Grateful Dead songs together, and they had played Phish songs together. But they got to wondering what would happen if they tried to merge the music of these two bands, the Granddaddies and Daddies of the jamband scene.

While these two bands have their surface similarities, most fans realize that their actual musical styles are quite different. The Grateful Dead are an earthy, folky, bluesy band where Phish is sharper around the edges–funky and more aggressive. But both bands have an improvisational approach to their live shows, and it is in that spontaneity where the magic really happens.

The guys in DPO have posed themselves a unique challenge in merging the two styles. Setlists end up with segues that look like Divided Sky > Morning Dew > Divided Sky, or Help > Slip > Frankenstein. Or how about Mike’s Song > Stella Blue > Weekapaug Groove. Or even stranger, like My Friend, My Friend of the Devil…or It Must Have Been The Roses Are Free. You can see that between the vast repertoires of the two bands, the possibilities are endless.

It’s just about as much fun as humans are allowed to have.

She Said String Band

The bass player is from the worst part of Flint, Michigan that you could ever imagine. She can bump it and thump it right down to her camouflage pantyhose. Her name is Ink, we call her Mink for short.

And on the guitar (we think her trainer is around and she's had her medications) is Pitbull. Our Pitbull has more tatoos and chains than any one chick can handle in one chick band. Bigfoot don't get close!

You're gonna think the dance floor is made of syrup. Because that mandolin thing will nail your feet to the floor and then she will sign her autograph with nail pullers right after the show. That's Sugarcube.

And on the banjo, she looks more like Lady Gaga than Benny Galloway. She puts the gumdrop in gumdrop, ladies and gentlemen, Thumbdrop.
