Bob Weir & Wolf Bros Spring Tour in Full Swing

Bob Weir & Wolf Bros winded though the Southeast with a dip into the Midwest this past week with stops in Nashville, Columbus, Asheville, Chattanooga, and Durham. Accompanied by a string a brass quintet, the band has expanded its musical scope with hat-tricks of sound that take most for a smooth ride with curves and hills.

In Asheville, on a warm, March 24, evening, the city relented and let kids set up Shakedown for a good few hours before the show. Most made it in for the opener where Bobby performed solo acoustic with Dark Star and Bird Song. The Dark Star opener was a completion of the opener from Columbus a few nights earlier.

Jay Lane, Don Was, Jeff Chimenti, and Barry Sless joined Bob Weir along with quintet members Alex Kelly, Brian Switzer, Adam Theis, Mads Tolling and Sheldon Brown for a El Paso > Mexicali Blues that was snappy as tight mariachi brass band, with a pronounced pedal steel mastery by Barry Sless leaving it not hard to imagine there were swinging saloon doors at the entrance to the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.

First set continued with Bob Weir original, Black-Throated Wind, with Casey Jones then lifting the show back before set break leaving many with energetic anticipation for what the second set had in store.

Bob Weir and Wolf Brothers with the Wolf Pack at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA on July 24, 2021

Going back to the Greek in Berkeley after so many years (actually decades) was a remarkable treat. The flashback floodgate was wide open from the first moment on the sidewalk out front waiting for the doors to open. Running into old friends, as well as making new ones, brought back one particular memory from the 80s of being “miracled” by some super cool passerby without even asking to a very sold-out Dead show at that exact same place on the sidewalk. Then there was that time when asked by UCB campus police what was in the brownies I was selling on the sidewalk. They still declined purchasing any even after telling them only chocolate, sugar, and love.
