BOX OF RAIN is the classic six piece that pay's tribute to the most prolific and finest period of the GRATEFUL DEAD, 68-74. Featuring an all star linup with former members of Dark Star Orchestra, Living Earth and Splintered Sunlight, 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 and 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, Mike Kennedy ( Living Earth / Splintered Sunlight ) on guitar,Jerry Marks ( Living Earth ) on bass and Pig Pen vocals,Bud Burroughs ( Boris Garcia ) on keys and Tim Kelly ( Montana Wildaxe ) on drums and Jon Bernstein on harmonica
