The Grateful String Band

Chicago, Illinois

Welcome to The Grateful String Band's official website; thanks for stopping by! Here you can find all the latest info on upcoming Grateful String Band shows, download live Grateful String Band recordings, and drop the band a line if you feel so inclined.


The Grateful String Band dedicates its bluegrass prowess to anything dead related. Any music the Grateful Dead 

performed is what TGSB explores and we perform it with our unique bluegrass spin. But The Grateful Dead is simply a starting point for what this band is capable of. With so many more options from the Pigpen days as well as spinoff projects like Old & In The Way and Jerry Garcia Band, TGSB is your one stop shop for your Deadgrass fix! If what you crave is middle ground between Grateful Dead and bluegrass, you've come to the right place.

We're really excited for our Fall dates that are coming up quick and would love to see you at both of these concerts. Please check out our Fall '19 Tour dates on our Shows page.
