After forming in 1992, Splintered Sunlight quickly became the most popular Grateful Dead tribute band in the Philadelphia area, gaining praise from Dead Heads and non Dead Heads alike. Since that time, the group has become a permanent music fixture in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The band plays a repertoire of well over 200 songs spanning the 30-year career of the Grateful Dead, skillfully crafting each show's set list so as to not repeat songs - let alone set lists - in the same or even nearby venues. Splintered Sunlight and its members have performed with Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead, as well as former Grateful Dead members Donna Jean Godchaux and pianist Tom Constanten. They have also performed with longtime Grateful Dead collaborator Merle Saunders and Jimmy Herring, guitarist for the "The Dead."
