Richie Furay Concert Database

last modified: December 31, 2012

1974

Richie Furay joins with Chris Hillman and J.D. Souther in a new band called the Souther-Hillman-Furay Band or SHF for short. They put together a backing band that includes ex-Manassas members Al Perkins, Paul Harris and ex-Domino Jim Gordon. This short-lived supergroup was a major disappointment to Richie, who ends his tenure with them after his two-album commitment to David Geffen ends.

1976

After taking a year off for the first time in his professional career, Furay assembles a band after he declines Al Perkins' offer to join Mason Proffit. Jay Truax (b), John Mehler (d) and Tom Stipe (k) of Love Song join him to form the Richie Furay Band. They record Furay's first solo album for Asylum Records. When it is time to promote it on the road, Furay assembles a touring band of Truax, Stipe, Mehler, Virgil Beckham (g), and Alan MacDougal (perc). It's back to opening act status and the band struggles. Furay finally takes them off the road to re-tool them.

Furay himself has apparently decided to sing in his unsteady upper register these days and his voice cracked and broke unmercilfully on material old and new."

1982

Furay continues his music ministry with selected venues throughout the country. The San Francisco booking is a bit strange since he does not really vary his approach of evangalizing from the stage to an audience that expected a rock and roll show.
