Although the Dead & Company might be calling it quits after next summer — Grateful Dead co-founder Bob Weir shows no signs of slowing down. Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros. will launch a 24-date winter tour that kicks off on February 2nd at North Charleston, South Carolina's North Charleston Performing Arts Center and winds down on March 11th and 12th in Nashville, Tennessee at the legendary Ryman Auditorium.
Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros. features famed producer Don Was on bass, drummer Jay Lane, and Dead & Company keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.
Out now is Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros.' Live in Colorado: Vol 2. The set follows the band's first volume released last February.
Bob Weir explained to us how the musical shape and form of the Wolf Bros. finally came to him: “It became clear to me what the group could be. We could be a trio — 'have a lot of room to play guitar — but we could also add people, we could plug people in. The whole idea is that it should be flexible. We can just kick the whole idea around. The core of the group is the trio and then we have the other two guys for addition. And all these guys, y'know, (laughs) they can solo endlessly. Y'know, we, we can take anything for a little walk in the woods.”
