About Bob Weir and Ratdog

Beginning as a side project for Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead and Rob Wasserman, Bob Weir and Ratdog is a rock band that began playing around 1995. After the death of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir and Ratdog started playing full time together, with Grateful Dead songs, some covers, and original material covering the bulk of their work. The lineup has since changed, but the band's original lineup included Bob Weir playing rhythm guitar, Bob Wasserman on upright bass, Jay Lane on drums, and Matthew Kelly playing lead guitar. They were later joined by a number of other musicians, including Dave Ellis on saxophone and Jeff Chimenti on keyboard. Bob Weir and Ratdog have also welcomed a number of guest musicians into their band, including Bruce Hornsby, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, Donna Jean Godchaux, Derek Trucks, Joan Baez, Susan James, Les Claypool, and more.

Bob Weir and Ratdog released a studio album in 2000, called "Evening Moods," which featured a guest appearance by Mickey Hart, who had previously played as a drummer for the Grateful Dead. The album included many new songs created by Ratdog, which were all well-received by longtime fans. The album managed to stay true to the jam band sound of the Grateful Dead, while still giving it their own unique twist with a more raw feeling. The bluesy record allowed fans to indulge in a record that was nostalgic for the old Grateful Dead sound, but it also offered just enough style of its own to keep listeners coming back for more.

A year later, Bob Weir and Ratdog released another album, this time a live album titled "Live at Roseland." The album included a number of live Grateful Dead cover songs that the band had performed at the Roseland Theater in Portland. "Live at Roseland" was likewise a hit with Deadheads, who enjoyed the unique spin that Ratdog put on various Grateful Dead songs.

In addition to their studio albums, Bob Weir and Ratdog continue to tour, bringing their bluesy jam band music to fans all over. Fans can expect to see all of their favorite Grateful Dead songs performed, in addition to plenty of Ratdog's original material.
