Rainbow Full of Sound with Bob Weir at the Hard Rock in San Francisco

Rainbow Full of Sound light up benefit show at the Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco

January 7, 2016


It was just before 7p.m. on December 18, 2015 at the Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco when Rainbow Full of Sound, headed by keyboardist Waynard Scheller, readied themselves for soundcheck. The night was still young, but already stirring with anticipation as the Grateful Dead tribute band took the stage to test their equipment. Right behind them, a familiar, smoky-haired veteran of the San Francisco music scene followed suit. He got hold of his trusty guitar and led the band through "West L.A. Fadeaway” until everything connected. The man was none other than Bob Weir—core member and rhythm guitarist of the original Grateful Dead.

Ben Wright of Henhouse Prowlers

Interview with Ben Wright from the Henhouse Prowlers

It’s evident that Chicago-based band, The Henhouse Prowlers, do not take opportunities for granted. Not even when they can effortlessly vaunt their vast achievements over the course of an 11-year ride. So when 2015 came dawdling to a close, and the band was asked to step in as a supporting act for the remainder of Yonder Mountain String Band’s fall tour, the band quickly seized the chance, no questioned asked. Live Music News and Review was lucky enough to have time to chat with Prowler, Ben Wright (banjo), about the continuing success of the HHP, the tour and live collaborations with YMSB, as well as the perpetual evolution of the band, its members, and their interminable plans for 2016.
