On the heels of Wild Honey’s 2016’s acclaimed, all-star Beach Boys’ 1967-77 Autism Benefit show(featuring Al Jardine & Micky Dolenz) at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, the Wild Honey Orchestra, led by Rob Laufer & Willie Aron and Friends will tackle The Band’s deeply influential and unforgettable first two records with the same level of love, passion, and stunning musicianship brought to all the ensemble’s previous shows.
No musical detail will be spared as Wild Honey cuts to the heart of these iconic songs with soulful guest vocalists, both famous and not, and incredible instrumental backing provided by the Wild Honey Orchestra. 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 show 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 twelve-year-old son Jake, a non-verbal autistic boy with extreme digestive distress and self-injury issues
The Wild Honey Foundation, a 501©(3) non-profit organization, seeks to support various charitable causes while passing on the passion, creativity, and idealism found in rock, rhythm & blues, folk & pop music to future generations.
