Ratdog Bring The Music To The Deadheads

Published: 2005-10-19
Former Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir will be keeping Deadheads happy this fall by taking his band Ratdog out on the road for a series of North American dates. Included in the itinerary will be a Halloween night stop in Toronto, though if you're in the area and can't get tickets for that show, the band will perform two nights earlier just down the QEW in Buffalo.

Weir formed Ratdog in 1995, although the band has to date released only one album, 2000's Evening Moods. To satiate fans, however, Ratdog began issuing a series of live CDs in 2003 for sale and download through the online music store MunckMusic.

Weir's original Ratdog partner, bassist Rob Wasserman, is now no longer involved with the group - the lineup now consists of Weir, bassist Robin Sylvester, guitarist Mark Karan, saxophone player Kenny Brooks, drummer Jay Layne and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.

Ratdog's upcoming tour will begin October 25 in Milwaukee and wrap up December 2 in Denver. As mentioned above, one Canadian stop will be included.
