Ticket levels




As most Deadheads will recall, this was a legendary tour, during a directional change in the GD musical format….still psychedelic and jazzy, with a fuller, orchestral sound, as a result of the addition of Keith Godchaux on keyboards and vocals, and his wife, Donna Jean Godchaux, on vocals. Nothing came close to that grand piano for an overall coloring on top of the GD palette of sounds.

Quite remarkably, Grateful Dead music has become its own genre, drawing crowds based on the music itself. Waynard Scheller and Rainbow Full of Sound (RFoS) 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 2022 is a special year, the fiftieth anniversary of 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.

Appropriately, RFoS began as a one-off experiment in 2012 when a gang of Deadheads decided to play the entire 1980 Radio City Music Hall run. It was so much fun that it took on a life of its own, with a rotating cast that keeps it fresh.

The one consistent link is Waynard, and it makes sense — his commitment to music goes back to a ragtime-piano-playing grandfather, hippie babysitters who brought guitars with them, and then a mom who taught him classics like “Heart and Soul.”

By the age of 10, he was playing guitar, and after lessons in voice and theory but almost none in piano, he became so consumed by the Grateful Dead’s Terrapin Station album that for close to a year he’d listen to it before going to school.

Things were never quite the same afterward. Soon he switched to keyboards and joined his first Dead-oriented band, Changing Planes. As a pianist, he was able to get solo work in restaurants, where he amused himself by jamming from American songbook standards like “Over the Rainbow” into, say, “Dark Star.” He took a hiatus from Dead music and spent a decade playing R&B and Motown at corporate gigs and private events with his vocalist sister, Sudie, but eventually he happily returned to the jam band world.

He fell in with one of the oldest Dead-oriented bands, the former Zen Tricksters of Long Island, and they toured for some time as Jam Stampede. He met John Kadlecik, formerly of Dark Star Orchestra and then Furthur and now JGB with Melvin Seals, and worked on three tours with him.

One day he got a call to play a show in a crypt at the Church of the Intercession in Trinity Cemetery, NYC, in the process meeting Zach Nugent (then with Melvin Seals and JGB) and Kenny Brooks (formerly with Bob Weir in RatDog).

His name spread around GD circles, and he played with Weir himself in an SF 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.

Bruce Hornsby once remarked that Grateful Dead songs had become “hymns” – in fact, they really are the new canon of traditional American music. Their appeal, Waynard says, is two-fold; there’s the sheer eclectic gumbo of bluegrass, jazz, blues, R&B and you-name-it that is fused into what they did, what the songs represent. “But best of all is the improvisational nature of the music, the opportunity to explore the unknown, to have no earthly idea what will come next, which is the most inspiring part of it.” It’s a musical adventure, and Waynard and RFOS are the ideal boat to take on the ride.
