When Bob Weir started Furthur with Phil Lesh he promised it wouldn’t be the end of RatDog – the outfit he assembled in 1995 that toured sporadically through the beginning of 2010. Weir made good on that promise with the announcement of a free webcast from Bobby’s TRI Studios on January 25.
Over the years RatDog has featured a number of different members, so for this month’s webcast Weir has put together a RatDog Revue of sorts, enlisting the last touring version of the band (Weir, Jeff Chimenti, Robin Sylvester, Kenny Brooks, Mark Karan and Jay Lane) as well as Steve Kimock and Rob Wasserman. Kimock filled in for Karan in RatDog when Mark was battling cancer, while Wasserman was a founding member of the ensemble. Showtime is set for 5PM PST on the 25th.
