Founding Buffalo Springfield singer Richie Furay will take part in a benefit show paying tribute to his old band that’s scheduled for Saturday, February 17, at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, California. Furay will perform with The Wild Honey Orchestra, a rotating collective of Los Angeles-area musicians, at the concert along with as-yet-unannounced guests.
The show will raise funds for the Autism Think Tank, a non-profit organization that brings together top specialists via an online conference to work on solutions to issues faced by young people with autism. During the last few years, The Wild Honey Foundation has raised more than $100,000 for the Autism Think Tank through various charity events, including shows celebrating the music of The Beatles, Big Star and The Band.
Furay co-founded Buffalo Springfield in 1966 with Stephen Stills and Neil Young. After the band broke up in 1968, Richie formed Poco.
Besides the tribute concert, Furay has just one other U.S. show on his schedule — a March 3 solo performance at Stargazers Theatre in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
