Wibby Brewing Presents:
Deadphish Orchestra
with very special guests Natalie Cressman & Ian Faquini
Doors 3PM | Show 4PM

DeadPhish Orchestra's song repertoire is not necessarily limited to The Grateful Dead & Phish for this experience. With this ensemble you can always expect an eclectic musical journey with some tricks & treats along the way.

Meet the artists

Paul Murin: Guitar, Vocals

Paul, a.k.a. “Lefty,” was a founding member of Phix, a Phish tribute band that toured extensively in the 2000’s. Prior to that, he spent much of the 1990’s playing original music with the Chicago-based band Ralph’s Kind. He currently resides in the mountains of Boulder, CO, and spends much of his weekday time teaching guitar lessons. He also operates highcountryguitar.com, an instructional website for guitarists (especially those who love the Dead & Phish!).

Brian Adams Bass, Vocals
Brian Adams…yes, THE Brian Adams…began his touring career with the Missouri-based band Barefoot Revolution. He joined Phix, with Chris and Paul, in 2003. Brian can also frequently be found onstage with Americana band Great American Taxi, and most recently has been playing bass with the High Hawks (featuring Vince Herman and Tim Carbone). He also does a damned fine Les Claypool impersonation–go ahead…ask him about it. Photos courtesy of Chad Zellmer, Cervantes Other Side, 12/30/16

Ted Tilton Keyboards, Vocals
Ted’s experience and skills on the keyboards and as a vocalist date back to the 1990’s, when he played with Iowa City-based Funk Farm, and in the early 2000’s with Colorado-based Purple Buddha. He currently lives in the Denver area, has two sons (Ethan and Dylan), and spends much of his time traveling for his work in the cannabis industry.

Natalie Cressman & Ian Faquini

Describing the musical partnership of Natalie Cressman and Ian Faquini as a duo is accurate, but their collaboration contains multitudes. She’s a trombonist, vocalist and songwriter from San Francisco. He’s a composer, guitarist, and singer from Brasilia. Together they’ve honed a singularly expansive creative communion encompassing their love of the Brazilian songbook, jazz, Impressionism and sophisticated pop songcraft.

Their original material features lyrics in Portuguese, French and English set to music drawing from a vast stylistic spectrum. With sumptuous two-part vocal harmonies hugging Brazilian-accented Portuguese accompanied by trombone and acoustic guitar, Cressman and Faquini’s richly orchestrated sound seems to emanate from a much larger ensemble.

Slated for release on GroundUP Music April 12, 2024, their third album, Guinga, is a tribute to the legendary Brazilian composer, guitarist and vocalist, who has mentored Faquini for more than a decade. Guinga himself performs on five tracks (joining the duo on three songs and Cressman alone on two). Focusing on his lesser known tunes, the project also includes three newer songs featuring Guinga’s lyrics set to music by Faquini. The album is dedicated to Cressman’s dear friend and horn section mate in the Trey Anastasio Band, saxophonist James Casey, who died on the first day of the Guinga recording, “and inevitably all the feelings of grief and loss poured into session,” Cressman says.

The duo’s first two albums together have fueled the rapidly growing recognition of their gorgeous sound, including a finalist nomination for “Duo of The Year” by the Jazz Journalists Association in 2023. Both 2019’s Setting Rays of Summer and 2022’s Auburn Whisper received critical praise and topped many “best of” lists in their respective years. Together Cressman and Faquini have played their music across the US in venues ranging from intimate house concerts to performing arts halls and jazz festival stages such as the Monterey Jazz Festival and the Jazz Aspen Snowmass. They’ve also toured internationally in Brazil, Japan, Portugal, Spain, and Italy.
