Bob Weir & RatDog » The Grateful Dead is long gone, but Bob Weir & RatDog live on. Weir and Rob Wasserman, the Dead’s rhythm guitarist and bassist (respectively), started RatDog as a side project. Since the death of Jerry Garcia in 1995, RatDog has carried the torch — performing Grateful Dead’s hits (Weir wrote "Truckin’," "Sugar Magnolia" and "Cassidy," among others), as well as covers and original material. Weir has 50 years’ experience on the road, making music and entertaining audiences, so expect an enjoyable night.
