The Grateful Dead disbanded four months after the death of frontman Jerry Garcia, but members continued performing. The remaining members reunited in 2008 as "Deadheads for Obama" to play two shows in support of then-candidate Barack Obama's run for president of the United States.
The campaign performances helped members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh realize how much they enjoyed playing together. The two formed Furthur shortly thereafter, and have since toured the country with the project, playing Grateful Dead hits and covering artists like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Band, Pink Floyd and other rock icons. Furthur's shows include segments of improvisation, when Weir, Lesh and their orchestra find new ways to groove.
