Waynard Scheller and Rainbow Full of Sound have become one of the East Coast’s premiere bands playing Grateful Dead songs, thanks to talent and a lot of practice – 300 shows’ worth. But this fall’s tour will come with a very special twist: for the second time, they will recreate the Dead’s legendary 1972 tour of Europe, tracing the path of twenty-one shows from England to Denmark to Germany to France to the Netherlands and back to England. Waynard has played with Weir himself in a San Francisco Bay area benefit for the Jerry Garcia Foundation called “Imagine There’s No Hunger,” and after they hit it off, on several other shows. Working with the Foundation brought him into contact with Hot Tuna’s Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, then another event connected him with Jason Crosby and Grahame Lesh of the Lesh Family Band…and the road goes on.
