Warren Haynes Visits Weir Here | New JerryGarcia.com Coming

Grateful Dead / Furthur guitarist Bob Weir welcomed Warren Haynes to TRI Studios’ talk show Weir Here for the first time last night on the eve of Jerry Garcia’s birthday. Haynes had a night off from his duties with the Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration and brought along the drummer (Jeff Sipe) and vocalists (Alecia Chakour and Jasmine Muhammad) from his Symphonic Celebration backing band for performances of Grateful Dead live repertoire classics.

Warren not only performed on three segments of the show, but he also sat for an interview with Weir along with Jerry Garcia offspring Trixie Garcia during Bobby’s first visit to his desk. Outside of Haynes, Weir, Sipe, Chakour and Muhammad, Gary Lambert held down bass duties and Jeff Chimenti sat in on keys for the majority of the performances. Haynes used Garcia’s famed Wolf guitar and showed it off in one segment of last night’s Weir Here.

The other big news to come out of last night’s Weir Here is that a completely redesigned JerryGarcia.com website is on its way. Mountain Girl and two of Garcia’s daughters discussed what fans can expect from the new version of the site including the ability to track all the Garcia shows you’ve seen in a colorful way and an incredibly detailed timeline of Jerry’s career. It seems like the geeky Deadhead’s dream come true. The Weir/Haynes episode of Weir Here featured a teaser clip showing off the new website that Trixie Garcia revealed is “coming soon.”
