Webcast Tonight: Bob Weir, Sammy Hagar, Jonathan Wilson, Jeff Chimenti and The Mooncusers at Sweetwater Music Hall
Earlier this week we mentioned a wounded veterans benefit happening tonight at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, Calif. that caught our attention. CNBC senior economics reporter Steve Liesman and his band The Mooncusers are set to perform this evening aided by a cast of special guests that include Grateful Dead / Furthur guitarist Bob Weir, psych-folkie Jonathan Wilson, rocker Sammy Hagar and Furthur keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. Well we just found out that the show will be webcast live via Yahoo! Music and TRI Studios starting at 9PM PT / 12AM ET.

Bobby and Steve Liesman met years ago backstage at a Dead show and renewed their friendship after the reporter profiled the guitarists for a pair of CNBC profiles. Hagar and Weir are longtime friends and neighbors who have jammed plenty of times over the year, while Wilson entered the Dead extended family thanks to a spotlight-stealing turn at the Move Me Brightly webcast this past August and impressive sit-ins with Furthur earlier this month. Don’t forget the show is a benefit and that all proceeds benefit the Coming Home Project.
