Never a group to stay in one place for long, Bob Weir's Ratdog--currently taking a winter break--has lined up a series of February tour dates.
The group, led by former Grateful Dead singer/guitarist Bob Weir, is currently set to play seven club dates in the West.
Also on Ratdog's itinerary is a three-night stand at New York's Beacon Theater in March, and an appearance at Minnesota's 10,000 Lakes Festival. Details are in the itinerary below.
Weir formed Ratdog--originally known as RatDog Revue--in 1995 with bassist Rob Wasserman, who is no longer involved with the group. The band unexpectedly became Weir's primary musical vehicle following the death of Grateful Dead co-founder Jerry Garcia in 1995.
Though Ratdog has always been a strong draw on the concert circuit, the group's only studio album is "Evening Moods," released by Arista Records in 2000.
Joining Weir in Ratdog's current lineup are drummer Jay Layne, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, guitarist Mark Karan, saxophonist Kenny Brooks and bassist Robin Sylvester.
