On the Bus
DC's Premier Grateful Dead Tribute Band since 2002
CELEBRATING 20 YEARS!
On the Bus is the OG premier Grateful Dead tribute band in the Washington DC area, known for its faithful recreation of the music, vibe and experience of a Dead show. On The Bus is a tribute not just to the Dead, but to the entire community that spawned a multi-generational genre that artfully blends the essential elements of rock, blues, jazz, funk, country, bluegrass, and gospel.
Founded in 2002, On The Bus has performed with John Kadlecik, Tom Constanten, Vince Welnick, David Gans, Ron Holloway, Jefferson Starship, New Riders, Moonalice, Cornmeal, Ekoostic Hookah, and many other talented musicians and bands.
REX MUSICAL CARAVAN
On the Bus is proud to be a part of the Rex Musical Caravan, and will contribute a portion of each ticket sold at desgnated events to the Rex Foundation.
The Rex Foundation was established in 1983 by members of the Grateful Dead and friends as a non-profit charitable organization to further their tradition of generosity and compassion.
