Wild Honey Orchestra - Buffalo Springfield - Autism Benefit

Alex Theatre, 216. North Brand Blvd., Glendale, CA

On the heels of our sold-out, acclaimed 2017's celebration of THE BAND (featuring Garth Hudson, Jackson Browne, Carlene Carter, & The Continental Drifters), The Wild Honey Orchestra and Friends with special guest RICHIE FURAY, Buffalo Springfield founder and songwriter, will explore the earth-shaking folk/country/psychedelic rock of Buffalo Springfield, a heavily influential band that also featured Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Bruce Palmer, Dewey Martin, and later Jim Messina. The show will once again be hosted by acclaimed Los Angeles author and music journalist Chris Morris, Wild Honey Orchestra will deliver yet another once-in-a-lifetime musical experience with numerous legendary guests.   The event will benefit the Autism Think Tank (autismthinktanknj.com), a non-profit that brings together a team of top autism specialists, via an internet medical conference, to tackle the painful medical/psychological issues faced by kids like Wild Honey co-founder Paul Rock's thirteen-year-old son Jake, a non-verbal autistic boy with extreme digestive distress and self-injury issues. The Wild Honey Foundation has raised over $100,000 for the ATT over the past four years.   Led by acclaimed musical director Rob Laufer (George Martin's Hollywood Bowl tribute to Sgt. Pepper) Wild Honey Orchestra and Friends will play songs from all three Buffalo Springfield LPS, along with bonus songs from the 2001 box set retrospective release. No musical detail will be spared as The Wild Honey Orchestra and an array of All-Star guest singers and players dig deep into 25-30 amazing songs by the seminal Los Angeles band that existed with its core members for a mere 18 months from 1966-1968. After performing at the 2015 Wild Honey "White Album" show, Chris Collingwood of Fountains of Wayne declared the Wild Honey Orchestra to be "just about the most cracking backup band I’ve ever heard. I told my friends that playing with that many amazing musicians behind me felt like piloting a 747." The acclaimed Wild Honey Orchestra, filled with life-long fans of the Buffalo Springfield, is super-excited to join yet another incredibly talented array of guest performers for this landmark show.The Autism Think Tank (autismthinktanknj.com), is a non-profit that brings together a team of top autism specialists, via an internet medical conference, to tackle the painful medical/psychological issues faced by kids like Wild Honey co-founder Paul Rock's thirteen-year-old son Jake, a non-verbal autistic boy with extreme digestive distress and self-injury issues.
