If you are a lover of blues music and folk rock you will love RatDog. After the Grateful Dead's passing in 1995, Bob Weir started his own project with a group of fine musicians called RatDog. Tickets to their concerts sell fast all over the country as they are an exceptional jam-band ensemble. Other members of this band include Jay Lane, Jeff Chimenti, Mark Karan, Kenny Brooks and Robin Sylvester.
RatDog's song list includes many Grateful Dead titles as well as a host of RatDog originals. They also play covers of Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix and more. The band even hosts a contest called Fantasy Ratdog for their fans to guess what songs they will be playing at each shows. If you get tickets to one RatDog show, you will surely get the bug to travel and see them in other cities just to experience what they are going to do next.
All of their shows are different. Artists like Joan Baez, John Popper and Les Claypool have been guests of RatDog on stage. The group's funky style of traveling blues fills the audience with rhythm and a need to dance. They segue between songs without stopping and keep the beat going long after the lyrics have run out. As the quintessential jam-band, RatDog records all of their live shows and sells those recordings at the shows. So if you buy tickets to RatDog you will not only hear great music but you will have the opportunity to take it all home with you.
Note that on the Internet you'll see this band's name spelled 'Rat Dog,' 'Ratdog,' 'Rat-dog' and 'RatDog' - perhaps even on the same web page. But don't worry -- you're already at the site you need to get the tickets you want!
