Bob Weir and Wolf Bros featuring Bob Weir, Don Was and Jay Lane, who have been on tour performing songs of Grateful Dead and more made a stop in Portland, Oregon on October 22. The tour, which kicked off October 16 in Reno, Nevada, will run through November 18, hitting major markets across the US including New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, Nashville, Denver, and Washington D.C.
Weir says of the trio, “Wolf Bros is something that really took its roots back in the spring of 2015 when Don Was came up to TRI and helped us piece together Dead & Company. For a while now, I’ve been itchin’ to explore our songs in a trio setting. An upright bass, my acoustic or electric guitar and a drummer. We did some rehearsals this past spring and it was big fun—and that’s the whole idea. We were kickin’ around Dead songs as well as tunes from my back pages. I’m pretty sure we’re gonna have a big adventure with this…”
Weir, who is one of rock’s finest and most distinctive rhythm guitarists, is showcasing his skills as a lead-guitarist. Don Was, one of music’s top bass players, has collaborated with countless musicians throughout his storied career, spanning a multitude of genres. San Francisco-based drummer Jay Lane played with Bob Weir’s RatDog for more than 16 years. He was also one of the first drummers of Primus.
