Further

Further was a musical project formed by former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh in 2009. The band emerged as a continuation of the musical journey that began with the Grateful Dead, carrying on the spirit of improvisation, exploration, and community that defined their iconic predecessor. Alongside Weir and Lesh, Further featured a talented lineup of musicians, including keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, drummer Joe Russo, guitarist John Kadlecik, and vocalist Sunshine Becker. Together, they created a dynamic and electrifying sound that paid homage to the Grateful Dead's rich musical legacy while exploring new avenues of creativity and expression. One of the defining features of Further was their commitment to reinventing and reinterpreting the Grateful Dead's extensive catalog of songs. Rather than simply recreating the Dead's music note for note, Further approached each performance with a sense of spontaneity and adventure, allowing the music to evolve and unfold in unexpected ways. Further's live performances were marked by extended jams, intricate interplay between band members, and a palpable sense of musical camaraderie. Each show was a unique and immersive experience, with the band pushing the boundaries of their creativity and inviting audiences to join them on a musical journey. In addition to performing classic Grateful Dead songs, Further also incorporated original compositions and covers into their repertoire, showcasing their versatility and musical range. This allowed the band to explore new musical territory and connect with fans on a deeper level, while still staying true to the improvisational spirit and communal ethos of the Grateful Dead. While Further was relatively short-lived, disbanding in 2013, their music continues to be celebrated by fans of the Grateful Dead and jam band music alike. With their passionate performances and unwavering commitment to the music, Further left an indelible mark on the world of music, carrying on the legacy of the Grateful Dead for new generations of music fans to enjoy.
