Bob Weir and Wolf Bros at Humphrey’s in San Diego, CA on 9/18/19 ~ Live performance Images Journal

The Music By no means Stops

There is a band out on the freeway 

They’re excessive steppin’ into city 

It is a rainbow filled with sound 

It is fireworks, calliopes and clowns 

All people’s dancin’…

Bob Weir and Wolf Bros performed in San Diego at Humphreys Concert events by the Bay on September 18, 2019 in a wonderful marina setting; fairly a tropical view with palm bushes and the shortly altering orange, pink and pink sundown colours earlier than the present began. If you’re going to this venue, attempt to have dinner on the restaurant earlier than the present, particularly if there’s a live performance dinner bundle. The chief chef Jason Gethin ready an incredible dinner, which included luxurious appetizer, predominant course and dessert decisions. The decadent pink velvet marquise cake was a foodie deal with from heaven.

Bob Weir, an authentic member of the Grateful Lifeless together with dreadhead drummer Jay Lane and the ever smiley bassist Don Was didn’t disappoint, as they performed largely Grateful Lifeless tunes, with a pair Bob Dylan songs. The trio’s large sound makes you neglect there are solely 3 band members; how do they do it?

San Diego people had been dressed of their greatest, posh tie dye outfits for the present, standing, dancing, ingesting and posing within the aisles to flee the seating plan, which was not as detrimental to standing up and dancing as initially thought. The gang was a talkative one and there have been some becoming Shut Up and Dance stickers going round. The primary set began with the suitable “The Music By no means Stopped” and continued with “Straightforward Solutions”, “Standing on Shaky Floor” after which the soulful Dylan tune, “After I Paint My Masterpiece.” Weir then performed one among his personal songs, the danceable “Gonesville.” However nonetheless, nobody yelled out, “I like you, BOBBY!” throughout this present. I could have accomplished that a few times earlier than. “Deep Elem Blues”, “Tennessee Jed”, “Unfastened Lucy”, “Misplaced Sailor” adopted by a “Saint of Circumstance” first set nearer.

The second set began with The Beatles’ “Blackbird”, main into “Cassidy” and “Truckin’.” “Fever”, “Scarlet Begonias”, “I Want a Miracle” had been subsequent. Bob Weir singing Bob Dylan is at all times a deal with and he didn’t disappoint within the second set with one other Dylan basic “A Laborious Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.” Weir enunciated the phrases so you can hear each syllable and virtually each single letter. After which we had been “Going Down The Highway Feeling Dangerous.”

The prime quality sound got here from Weir’s Diamond Collection ELA M 251E Telefunken microphone; retail worth between $10-$12,000.00, American {dollars}, which converts to about 3 Million Canadian Loonies. Jason Scheuner of Telefunken stated, “It’s probably the most wanted studio microphone in historical past. Absolutely the holy grail of microphones.” The stage was stripped naked of monitor audio system and cords, leaving solely the musicians and their devices. The drum equipment which regarded like a daily drum equipment was really an digital set with digital cymbals that despatched indicators to the soundboard and PA system. This microphone may be very delicate and was used in order that the band may hear themselves play; the noise degree on stage was decreased, creating a snug and private surroundings and removed the deafening impact. We would like Weir’s ears to remain wholesome!
The present ended completely with the timeless “Ripple” encore, penned by Jerry and the beloved Robert Hunter, the boys whose literary lyrics are important in our each days.

RIP Robert Hunter 23 June 1941- 23 September 2019

Bob Weir and Wolf Bros… “They seem to be a band past description.”

*Thanks to Jason Scheuner for the knowledge on Bobby’s ELA M 251E Telefunken microphone.
