Following a successful fall tour and much lauded four-night sold out run with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center earlier this fall, Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros—consisting of Bobby Weir, Don Was, Jay Lane and Jeff Chimenti—announce three nights alongside the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra at the Atlanta Symphony Hall on February 17, 18 and 19.
“Like all of what we do, this is a work in progress,” says Weir. “We’re working up more songs, and many sections will be rendered differently. Basically, this is what we were imagining when we were playin’ these back when—and yet, there’s still room for imagination—and that’s where we’ll go next with it...”
The band will once again be joined by The Wolfpack, a string and brass quintet which brings a thrilling orchestral element to the music and features Alex Kelly, Brian Switzer, Adam Theis, Mads Tolling and Sheldon Brown along with Barry Sless on pedal steel. Each night a completely unique set featuring hits from the expansive Grateful Dead catalogue, Bobby’s solo albums, and more will be performed. Original orchestration will be provided by Stanford professor Dr. Giancarlo Aquilanti.
