Bob Weir at The Sherman

The Sherman Theatre* in Stroudsburg, PA presented Bob Weir (formally of The Grateful Dead) and RatDog on Tuesday April 1st. The festival atmosphere included a pre show party featuring the music of Natural Breakdown along with raffles and vendors sharing their wonderful wares. There were also numerous impromptu vendors and musician throughout the town of Stroudsburg in anticipation of the event which was attended by thousands of people. The show itself lived up to all expectations and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who were there. Numerous people were swaying and dancing in a state of consciousness reminiscent of Bob Weir’s previous band (The Grateful Dead). However, his new band (RatDog) proved to be an entity to itself through its originality and its own unique relationship with its audience. The shear number of the audience inhibits me from mentioning everyone I saw there, but I welcome any of you who read this to make yourselves known and share your reflection of the event. The next shows at The Sherman Theatre* will be The Stepcrew! featuring numerous dancing styles along with some fiddling on Thursday April 3rd at 8pm and the return of former American Idol Bo Bice on Saturday April 5th at 8pm.
