About Us

BOKOMARU is a band from Montreal that plays the music of the Grateful Dead. Bokomaru is not simply a “clone band” because its members bring their own interpretations to the Dead songs they perform. At the same time, the peculiar sound and feel of the Grateful Dead is not lost as Bokomaru retains the “spirit” of spontaneity and improvisation inherent in the Dead’s music. The band has been performing since 1986 and it is the only band of its kind in Quebec. So far, Bokomaru plays a repertoire of more than 70 Dead songs and it has a loyal following of fans.
