Box of Rain – '68-74 Era Grateful Dead Tribute
BOX OF RAIN is the classic six piece that pays tribute to the most prolific and finest period of the GRATEFUL DEAD, 68-74. Featuring a revolving, all star lineup with former members of Dark Star Orchestra, Living Earth, Zen Tricksters and Dead On Live, BOX OF RAIN channels the sound and magic that could have only happened at that special time.
And what a time it was..the Dead were at the height of both their songwriting and improvisational prowess! Featuring an extended Pig Pen presence, one very swingin’ drummer and the most coherent and visceral space/improvisations, the typical 5-6 hour GD performances were legendary and a trip for sure.
“BOX OF RAIN is a true labor of love with Bob Stirner (Living Earth/Boris Garcia) on lead guitar, Craig Privett (Half Step, Jam Stampede) on bass, Mike Kennedy (Living Earth) on guitar, Bud Burroughs (Boris Garcia) on keys, Jon Bernstein (Bears Choice) on harp and Pig Pen vocals and Tim Kelley (Boris Garcia) on drums.”
