Box of Rain
November 23 @ 8:00 PM
Box of Rain is the classic six piece that pays tribute to the most prolific and formative period of the Grateful Dead, 1968-74. Featuring an all-star lineup with former members of Dark Star Orchestra, Living Earth, Boris Garcia, Zen Tricksters, and Dead On Live, Box of Rain channels the sound and magic that could only have emerged from that special time. And what a time it was! The Dead were at the height of both their songwriting and improvisational prowess. They feature an extended Pig Pen presence, one very swingin’ drummer, and the most coherent and visceral space and improvisations that capture the legendary 5-6 hour Grateful Dead performances.
Box of Rain is a true labor of love with Bob Stirner ( Living Earth / Boris Garcia ) on lead guitar, Dave Berg ( DSO, Dead On Live ) on guitar, Craig Privett ( Half Step ) on bass, Bud Burroughs ( Boris Garcia ) on keys, Tim Kelly ( Boris Garcia, Montana Wildaxe ) on drums and Jon Bernstein on harmonica.
