      EVENT DETAILS
      Bob Weir and Wolf Bros


      Bob Weir and Wolf Bros, featuring Weir, Don Was and Jay Lane, are returning to the road following a successful run of sold-out dates in Fall, 2018 that saw them performing the songs of Grateful Dead and more. This is more fun than a frog in a glass of milk, Weir says of touring with Wolf Bros, Don is all over his upright, and Jay needs to somehow be kept in line at times, but its all falling together nicely.Forbes praises the trio for their stunning recreations of classic Grateful Dead songs, saying Weir has never stopped looking for new ways in which to frame those familiar sounds, as did PopMatters who rave that finding new sonic territory to explore after more than 50 years on the Golden Road to unlimited musical devotion is a tall order, but Bob Weir is doing it again with his Wolf Bros. Relix goes on to describe Was and Lanes backing of Weir on the sold-out tour as spotless.One of the founding members of the legendary Grateful Dead, which received a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007, Weir has become one of rocks finest and most distinctive rhythm guitarists. In 2016, Weir released Blue Mountain on Columbia/Legacy, his first album of solo material in more than 10 years and his first album of entirely original material in more than 30 years. Weir is currently a member of Dead & Company which features Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann along with John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti.Don Was founded the 80s funk-rock band Was (Not Was), known for hits such as Walk The Dinosaur and Spy In The House Of Love. As an in-demand, highly acclaimed producer, Was has been honored with four Grammy Awards for his production work in each of the past three decades, including Best Album honors for work with the Rolling Stones and Bonnie Raitt. Production credits include the Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Gregg Allman, John Mayer and Neil Young.

As one of musics top bass players, Was has collaborated with countless musicians throughout his storied career, spanning a multitude of genres.San Francisco-based drummer Jay Lane played with Bob Weirs RatDog for more than 16 years.
