Bob Weir & RatDog
Bob Weir & RatDog
There may never have been a band that has evolved more dramatically than RatDog. It began as a laid-back blues ensemble in 1995, but now has become a snarling rock band that has a fabulous jazz trio at its heart. Of course, all those forms are simply different facets of Bob Weir's unruly musical personality. RatDog's music covers the majority of the Grateful Dead songbook, as well as Weir's complete solo repertoire, and the psychedelic stylings of his Grateful Dead classics like "Sugar Magnolia."
Eric Krasno (Lettuce, SOULIVE)
Eric Krasno (Lettuce, SOULIVE)
Founding member and guitarist of beloved bands Soulive and Lettuce, Eric Krasno is taking his fifteen plus year career in a new direction with his first solo record, Reminisce (Royal Family Records).

Recorded in Brooklyn, NY and at Soulive drummer Alan Evan's PlayOnBrother studios in Western Massachusetts, the album features longtime collaborators Adam Deitch (drums) and Nigel Hall (bass, keys and vocals), as well as Royal Family artists Neal Evans, Ryan Zoidis and Alan Evans.

Since forming Soulive in 1999, Krasno, organist Neal Evans, and drummer Alan Evans have toured the globe spanning small rock clubs to major festivals, in Africa, Japan, Russia, Brazil, and more. With ### releases on Velour Recordings, Blue Note, Stax and their own Royal Family Records, and a resume that includes opening spots for the Rolling Stones and Dave Matthews Band, it's little wonder the group has developed a reputation as one of the most celebrated instrumental soul-funk trios in the world.

Known throughout jazz, funk, and hip-hop circles, Krasno has the opportunity to work with jazz icons Joshua Redman, Dr. Lonnie Smith and Chaka Khan as well as hip-hop visionaries 50-Cent, GZA and Talib Kweli. Now in his eleventh year performing with Soulive, the studio and record label owner, and sought after producer (Ledisi, Matisyahu, 50-Cent), has distilled years of musical experience and influence into a reverent homage to the greats: "Reminisce is a collection of tunes I recorded over the last few years," says Krasno. "I called it Reminisce because I felt like the record represented many different eras and styles of music and guitar playing that influenced me growing up. From covers like "Manic Depression" to originals like "76", the record is a nod to those greats that came before me while adding our flavor to the music"

Krasno will take the music of Reminisce on the road with his new band, Chapter 2, featuring Krasno on guitar and vocals, Nigel Hall on vocals and keys, Adam Deitch on drums, and Louis Cato on bass and vocals. With guest appearances from luminaries such as Derek Trucks, Questlove, Warren Haynes and George Porter Jr. of the Meters, Chapter 2 is a band to be seen and heard.
