The Denver Post's online entertainment magazine REVERB offers a fantastic review of the Fillmore Dec. 11 show where DSO recreated the epic Denver Coliseum show from 11/21/73. A highlight: "DSO represents something far beyond a tribute act. They are a living, breathing love letter to the music and spirit of the Grateful Dead, a band whose indelible legacy remains vibrant even as its surviving original members enter their twilight years."

Our friends at Jambands.com review the November 30 show from Crystal Bay Club near Lake Tahoe: "It’s always a treat to see these fine musicians perform, and Jeff Mattson is clearly an epic fit to the bands studied take on Grateful Dead music. Personally, because I wasn’t even alive for several years after this show was played, it’s super cool to get a little taste of what it would have been like to hear a Dead show go down in 1972."
