Moonalice 8/24/18 Golden Sails Hotel, Long Beach, CA
August 24, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - August 25, 2018 @ 12:00 am
Moonalice is a psychedelic, roots-rock band of seasoned musicians mixing a variety of genres with extended musical improvisations. Everyone is a part of the experience. Moonalice was the brainchild of the great producer, T Bone Burnett in 2007 because he wanted to create a band with a San Francisco 60’s sound. Moonalice plays mostly original material mixed with some covers, and during their extended freeform jams the band moves as one, drawing from many musical genres honed from years of experience playing with various major acts. Every show features an original art poster, created by a well-known artist, and with its own unique Moonalice “legend”. A copy of the poster will be given free to all attendees. All Moonalice concerts are broadcast live in HD on the Moonalice Couch Tour and available shortly after their set.
Moonalice’s hit single “It’s 4:20 Somewhere” has been downloaded over 4.6 million times.

CUBENSIS brings the Grateful Dead concert experience back to life! Drawing from all eras of the Dead, the band performs two sets of Grateful Dead and JGB classics that retain all the spontaneous exploratory jamming for which the bands were renowned. However, the music produced is uniquely Cubensis.
The group has been acclaimed for giving new life to the Grateful Dead’s material, bringing in new styles, new innovations, and new jam band enthusiasts, while at the same time remaining loyal to the original music and the original fans.
Cubensis has been pleased to find their most enthusiastic supporters are those who never got a chance to see the Grateful Dead in person, and wonder what they missed. Seasoned “Deadheads” come out to relive the great shows gone by, and as a result, the band is in great demand.
Cubensis was given specific permission by Jerry Garcia to perform the Dead’s music. Garcia’s only request was, “Do a good job of it.” Ever since, CUBENSIS has promised authenticity with reverance, and delivers pure Grateful Dead-inspired music like it was meant to be heard…re-creating the magic, one show at a time.
