Bob Weir Offers Delivery

The music former Grateful Dead and now Furthur guitarist Bob Weir plays is still elemental and earthy.  But he and his former band were always on the cutting edge when it came to technology, so we were not surprised when we got word that Weir has build a studio with the added capability of streaming live studio performances directly to fans - in HD no less. 
calls his new studio '...the ultimate playpen for a musician.'  Using microphones embedded in the ceiling of the studio, an engineer can alter the acoustic atmosphere of the space, creating the sonic environment of anything from an intimate club to a massive cathedral, using an iPad.  Sammy Hagar, himself a tech-savvy guy, was on-hand as Weir provided a demonstration for KGO-TV.  What he saw and heard impressed the Red Rocker enough that he could offer nothing to improve what Weir has done.
Available pay-for-view concerts involving Weir and other musicians will be listed on the TRI Studios web site.
