About the Event
"We can emulate Orpheus and sing on in the face of horror, and not stop singing until the tide turns, and a better day begins."
Set the gearshift for the high gear of your soul!!!
There is nothing like a Grateful Dead concert. For fans of the jam-band genre, truer words have never been spoken. In the current era of tribute bands and exact recreations, TUB was conceived as something different. The idea was simple: share the experience of musical exploration and improvisation that inspired the Grateful Dead with the current generation – but don’t limit the set lists to one band. TUB primarily focuses on the music of the Grateful Dead, Phish, and WSP, but will also flavor their sets with a nod to the Band, Steely Dan and other musically engaging artists.
Per one writer: "Basically, they are the Southeast's DSO..., if DSO added Phish and WSP as a part of their sets."
TUB was formed in late Fall during 2010 when guitarist Brian Haynes reconnected with drummer Alan Eberhardt. Based on their shared love of the Grateful Dead, they were determined to build a band with set lists focused on improvisational music. Brian enlisted keyboardist Robert O’Neal, who then recommended Lee Amberson as vocalist for the “yet un-named” project. The line-up was solidified when Greg Staggs moved back to AL to become the band’s regular bassist in 2013. Although O'Neal left the band in the summer of 2019, the core four of TUB continue the journey with Matt Wiley in the keys chair.
At each TUB show, a choice selection of tunes is played with the same attitude as a jazz artist might approach a standard or a classical performer might interpret a composition: the spirit of the original piece is respected while also being rediscovered by the passion and interaction between the musicians and the audience.
Every show is unique in terms of the songs performed, the order they appear in, and the unlimited direction of the improvisations. This belief in the power of live music and the interplay between the energy of the fans and the band make each TUB show an unforgettable experience.
True Phans and even casual listeners throughout the South are spreading the word: TUB shows are not to be missed!!!!
