Previously opening for bands such as The Byrds, YES, Bonnie Raitt, America, and Peter Frampton, the group recently set out to tour their old stomping grounds of Boston and California.As fate may have it, the band ran into Bob Weir at his club, Sweetwater Music Hall, in Mill Valley, CA on August 19th.
