Try Phish. It's the closest that I can think of.

Bob Weir, Mickey Hart , and Phil Lesh all have their own bands. They often tour together too.

About 12 years ago I worked part-time concert security in Denver and I worked backstage at a Grateful Dead concert. In all the concerts I worked, we were never briefed like we were for the Dead.

The Dead Heads were the most organized fan base of any band touring. They would actually send out scouts and have the check out the different entrances to the venue, then they'd report back and decide which gate to try and get into. Once that was decided, they slowly start milling around the target gate and on a predetermined signal, they'd rush that gate and get past the overwhelmed security guards and go into the concert.

They didn't make it that night in Denver.

I've also heard that most of the GD followers moved on to Phish. They have a pretty strong following as well. They trashed Red Rocks. The local cops brought in horseback officers and the next reports on the radio were about horses running loose throughout the venue.

Good luck in your quest to be a... Phishhead..

this the Band Spirit, kinda big in the 60's and 70's I was a fan in the late 80's and 90's. My opinion they were better than the Dead. Dont know if they are still around. Last I heard was in 97 Randy california died in a surfing accident. Back in the days of vinyl and tape walkmans I would wear out tapes of them in 6 months.

Asking for a band simular to the dead opens up a can of worms.(they were original) There are many, drug induced, incoherent bands from the 60's/70's. Don't get me switched up, I seen them in San Diego and Lost Wages, it was fun. (Marshmallow fight, who'd ever heard of such an occasion?Spin dancers were mind boggling to a farm fresh kid.) They never, ever played the same song the same way it was done before. Phish actually has members of the dead if my mind serves me right. Check out the Doors, Captain BeefHeart, FRANK ZAPPA, wishbone ash, CANNED HEAT, how can I forget canned heat?, nice ,rock'n'blues.

Are you looking for bands with a similar music style or bands that loosely travel around the country and play at small venues? The Grateful Dead were actually a precursor to the "grunge" bands of Seattle. The sound may not be the same but the general attitude is there. Even though the Rolling Stones are much bigger, I personally view them in the same light as I do the Grateful Dead though their musical style is unique as well. Your question is really a tough one. It's like looking at a work of art. Everyone sees it in a slightly different way.
