As one of the Grateful Dead's lyricists from 1971 to 1995, he penned lyrics to some 30 songs. His Dead connection began way before the band did, actually, as he met Bob Weir in prep school in 1962. Nearly ten years later, he was capturing the essence of one of the first jam bands and putting it to paper. Among others, he wrote lyrics for Weir's 1972 effort, Ace, including the tunes "Black-Throated Wind," "Looks Like Rain," and "Mexicali Blues." He was married to Elaine Parker Barlow for 17 years before they divorced; they had three daughters, Leah Justine, Anna Winter, and Amelia. John Perry Barlow died at his home in San Francisco in February 2018; he was 70 years old.

Cubensis - Live Grateful Dead Music
Cubensis - Live Grateful Dead Music
CUBENSIS brings the Grateful Dead concert experience back to life! Drawing from all eras of the Dead, the band performs two sets of Grateful Dead and JGB classics that retain all the spontaneous exploratory jamming for which the bands were renowned. However, the music produced is uniquely Cubensis.

The group has been acclaimed for giving new life to the Grateful Dead’s material, bringing in new styles, new innovations, and new jam band enthusiasts, while at the same time remaining loyal to the original music and the original fans.

Cubensis has been pleased to find their most enthusiastic supporters are those who never got a chance to see the Grateful Dead in person, and wonder what they missed. Seasoned “Deadheads” come out to relive the great shows gone by, and as a result, the band is in great demand.

Cubensis was given specific permission by Jerry Garcia to perform the Dead's music. Garcia's only request was, "Do a good job of it." Ever since, CUBENSIS has promised authenticity with reverance, and delivers pure Grateful Dead-inspired music like it was meant to be the magic, one show at a time.
