Box of Rain is the classic six-piece that pays tribute to the most prolific and finest period of the Grateful Dead: 1968-1974. Featuring an all-star lineup with 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, Skip Vangeles ( Dark Star Orchestra / Border Legion ) on bass, Mike Kennedy ( Living Earth / Splintered Sunlight ) on guitar, Sean Kelly ( Living Earth / Whirled Blue ) on harp and Pig Pen vocals, Mike Borowski ( Living Earth / Splintered Sunlight / Dirk Quinn Band) on keys and Jim Monia ( Border Legion ) on drums.
