A Weekend with Weir, Warren and Widespread
As previously reported, on Thursday Bob Weir & RatDog welcomed a number of guests to the stage at New Yorks Beacon Theater, including Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, Steve Molitz, drummer Tom Pope and vocalist Dana Fuchs. Herring was actually in town for a pair of performances with Widespread Panic at the United Palace Theater and brought Haynes out Friday for an extended segment that included Surprise Valley, Protein Drink and Sewing Machine. Meanwhile, the collaborations continued at the Beacon, as Weir welcomed Fuchs back for runs through The Weight, The River Song and Dear Prudence. A number of other area players also took the stage with RatDog, including The Fringe saxophonist George Garzone, saxophonist Doug Yates, keyboardist Dred Scott and vocalists Chris Burger and Zacariah Mose, both of whom frequently collaborate with RatDog drummer Jay Lane.
RatDog will sing the National Anthem at Baltimore, MDs Camden Yards before the Orioles/Mariners game at 3 PM this afternoon. The group will then perform at Baltimores Rams Head Live tomorrow.
