Bob Weir & Wolf Bros Debut With Help From John Mayer & Mickey Hart In San Francisco

On Saturday night August Hall in San Francisco hosted at a benefit for Save the Redwoods League Education and Parks Support Programs. As reported the night was set to feature a performance billed as “Bob Weir, Mickey Hart And Friends With Special Guest John Mayer.” In a bit of a twist the evening instead saw the debut of Bob Weir and Wolf Bros with Mayer and Hart joining for just a portion of the seven-song set.

The former Grateful Dead rhythm guitarist’s latest project features him teaming up with bassist Don Was and drummer Jay Lane. Weir and his new bandmates, who will hit the road in earnest starting on Tuesday night in Reno, got things going with Bob Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece.” From there, the three-piece looked to Weir’s collection of cowboy songs Blue Mountain for “Only A River.” The trio then dove into the Grateful Dead catalog for takes on “Friend Of The Devil” and “Loose Lucy.” Mayer emerged next singing lead on “Althea” with his Dead & Company bandmate Hart joining the fold for “Easy Answers.” The quintet brought things to a close with Buddy Holly’s “Not Fade Away.”
