Bruce Hornsby And Bob Weir To Perform At Benefit

Grateful Dead / Furthur guitarist Bob Weir and keyboardist Bruce Hornsby will be among those performing at Stars to the Rescue XXIII on January 4. The event, which will be held at Lesher Center For The Arts in Walnut Creek, CA, is a benefit to raise money for Tony LaRussa’s Animal Rescue Foundation.

No word yet on whether the former Grateful Dead band mates will share the stage at the benefit, but we sure hope so. Comedian Allan Havey, singer Michael Cavanaugh and pop group By The Way are among the other acts on the bill. Tickets for the show will go on sale in December. Look for an announcement soon on the Stars to the Rescue XXIII event page.
