BOX OF RAIN is a classic six piece band that pays tribute to the most prolific and finest period of the GRATEFUL DEAD, 1968-1974. Featuring an 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 Grateful Dead performances were legendary and memorable for sure.
You’ll be sure to hear all the hits of this special era in the Dead history. Songs such as “Sugar Magnolia,” “Uncle John’s Band,” “Casey Jones,” “Truckin’,” “Cumberland Blues,” “Scarlet Begonias,” “Friend of The Devil,” and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
