#1 Tribute Band Agency on the Planet

CRYPTICAL  a tribute to  
Band Bio


CRYPTICAL is comprised of five musicians with a collective resume that reads like a Who's Who of rock, blues, R&B, funk and jazz. The band members all grew up with Grateful Dead music in their souls, and their improvisatory yet highly danceable grooves pay original tribute to timeless Grateful Dead originals.

Featuring the incredible Stu Allen (JGB, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Ghosts of Electricity) channeling the guitar and voice of Jerry Garcia, CRYPTICAL bends all minds and bodies in its performance of -- and expansions on -- classic Grateful Dead songs. Performing at Bay Area venues of all sizes, from the intimate 100-seat Connecticut Yankee in San Francisco to 40,000 fans at AT&T Park (for the SF Giants Jerry Garcia Tribute Night), the members of CRYPTICAL create as faithful a glimpse as possible into the spirit of the live Grateful Dead experience.

Come on down, dance, share the music, share the love, and help us make each CRYPTICAL performance the next best thing to a Dead show!
