Stella Blue's Band, founded in 2009, recreates the experience of being at a Grateful Dead show. It features dynamic jams with lots of improvisation, capturing the magic of the Dead's 30 year run. 

SBB features dynamic jams with lots of improvisation fulfilling the musical magic that the Dead achieved. We play tunes from all stages of the Grateful Dead's 30-year run capturing the unique sound and adventurous spirit of the music. With love and reverence for the music, we create that special feeling and community unique to Grateful Dead Shows.

The band is Bill Bonacci (lead guitar, vocals), Steve Liesman (rhythm guitar, vocals), Greg Solomon (bass), Ken Aigen (keyboards), Ron Cohen (drums, vocals), and Amy Stahlin (vocals). They regularly perform with a small group of top-notch drummers sitting in with the band—such as Josh Kates (Reflections)—to provide the double-drummer magic that allows the band to find that higher gear, so essential to Grateful Dead jamming. Other players sitting in with the band have included Bill Carbone (drums, Max Creek), Kenny Brooks (sax, Ratdog).

The ability to reach that magic place in the music separates Stella from other Grateful Dead bands.  Like true Deadheads, all the band members are gear fanatics constantly in search of the best possible sound. Their attention to the details of sound and love of the music are apparent from the first note of a SBB show. Stella Blue's Band, a project born out of love for the music, and jamming for fun, has blossomed into one of the premier Grateful Dead tribute band in the country.
