Dear friend Steve Harris passed away earlier today. He had fought a long fight against his cancer and stayed with us as long as he could. A couple weeks ago he stopped the chemo, and went home, with hospice care, and to be with those he loved. He was the drummer and vocalist with Cubensis, Southern California’s premiere Grateful Dead tribute band, and a much loved member of the Deadhead community,and he is already greatly missed.
Here is Steve on drums and vocals with his band, Cubensis.
The late Vince Welnick played a few shows with Cubensis over the years. This was Dec. 22 2002 at 14 Below in Santa Monica:
This was recorded by Ebb Eskew, and has not been seen before these uploads.
Vince played a short solo set, then played two full sets with the Cubensis.
This playlist is all of Vince’s performance (Watching The Wheels, Way To Go Home, Samba In The Rain, Crystal Ship) and a couple song’s he did with Cubensis (Standing on the Moon, Baba O’reily > Tomorrow Never Knows).
