Box of Rain: a Fierce and Accurate Tribute to '68-'74 Era Grateful Dead

Complete with Pig Pen vocals, extended improv, feedback and love!

Box of Rain is the classic six piece that pays tribute to the finest and most prolific period of the Grateful Dead, ’68-’74.

Based in Philadelphia, PA.

An all star lineup with former members of Dark Star Orchestra, Living Earth, Zen Tricksters, Dead On Live, and current members of Boris Garcia, 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 a legendary trip for sure.


Box of Rain is a true labor of love featuring:

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

Jon Bernstein on Harmonica
