Before Dead & Company embark on their 2019 summer tour, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros – the Grateful Dead guitarist’s outfit with bassist Don Was and Ratdog drummer Jay Lane – will hit the road for a spring jaunt.

The trio launched their maiden trek in 2018 with a setlist stocked with Grateful Dead songs. “This is more fun than a frog in a glass of milk,” Weir said of touring with Wolf Bros in a statement. “Don is all over his upright, and Jay needs to somehow be kept in line at times, but it’s all falling together nicely.”

The spring tour begins February 28th at Ithaca, New York’s State Theatre and runs through March 30th in Charleston, South Carolina. The trio has also booked a May 3rd slot at Redondo Beach, California’s Beachlife Festival.

“For a while now I’ve been itchin’ to explore our songs in a trio setting. An upright bass, my acoustic or electric guitar and a drummer,” Weir said of the outfit in August 2018. “We did some rehearsals this past spring and it was big fun—and that’s the whole idea. We were kickin’ around Dead songs as well as tunes from my back pages. I’m pretty sure we’re gonna have a big adventure with this.”
