Don Was Joins Bob Weir and Wolf Bros For Fall Tour

Bob Weir and Wolf Bros

Grateful Dead fans will want to check out the new tour from Bob Weir and Wolf Bros, a new trio featuring the Dead guitarist alongside former Primus drummer Jay Lane and bassist Don Was of Was (Not Was). Was, who is also a prolific music producer and the current president of Blue Note Records, helped to kick-start the project.

“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,” Weir explained in a press release. “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…”

The trio will be “exploring songs of the Grateful Dead and more in a trio setting” along a 19-stop tour this fall following the final Dead & Company performances at Lockn’ Festival. They’ll start October 16th at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada, and head to the West Coast, eventually heading east to wind up in New York City on November 18th.
