Grateful Dead tribute ‘Box Of Rain’ at the Milton Theatre May 11

May 9, 2018

Box Of Rain is the classic six-piece that pays tribute to the most prolific and finest period of the Grateful Dead, 68-74. 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. This is one experience that is not to be missed, playing at the historic Milton Theatre Friday, May 11, at 8 p.m.

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 five-to-six-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, Dave Berg (DSO, Dead On Live) on guitar, Jerry Marks (Living Earth) on bass and Pig Pen vocals, Bud Burroughs (Boris Garcia) on keys, Tim Kelly (Boris Garcia, Montana Wildaxe) on drums, and Jon Bernstein on harmonica.

Tickets are sold at $15-$20 and available for at MiltonTheatre.com, call 302-684-3038, or at the event itself.

The Milton Theatre is located in downtown historic Milton on Union Street along the Broadkill River. 110 Union St.
