FAMILY INSTRUMENT ALERT #2

2/12/2020

Phil Lesh’s historic bass ‘Mission Control’ joins us on stage at House of Blues San Diego Feb 21 & The Wiltern in LA on Feb 22! As one of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh’s most iconic instruments, ‘Mission Control’ was built at Alembic by luthier Rick Turner in 1973 not just for, but as part of, The Wall of Sound. Featured in The Grateful Dead Movie, this instrument was on stage with the Grateful Dead from 1974 until 1979. Shortly after Phil stopped playing her in 1980, she was gutted of her pickups and lost for 40 years, she has been found and restored and is ready to be heard again and will be played by DSO's very own Skip Vangelas at these tour-ending shows! Tickets available at https://www.darkstarorchestra.net/tour-dates/.
