    Not to be too nitpicky…but Kingfish was not a GD tribute band…they were a band that GD member Bob Weir made an album with as a side project from the Dead back in the 70’s…some of those songs ended up in the Dead’s repertoire.

    Sorta have to agree with David here , If you want GD tribute bands you look at Phish , or Darkstar Orchestra, and others ……Darkstar is as close as anyone could get ……… They are the Tribute band .
