They’ll kick off the Roam The West mini-outing February 9 and 10 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, moving on to Portland, Ore., and finishing up with three shows on Lesh’s home turf at the Maritime Hall in San Francisco February 15 – 18.

The former Grateful Dead bassist will be joined by Rob Barraco, Jimmy Herring, John Molo, and Gov’t Mule guitarist Warren Haynes.

After wrapping up in San Francisco, the band will take a month off before heading back out on the road for the Here Comes Sunshine tour beginning April 13 and 14 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

They’ll play mainly theatres and large clubs in the eastern half of the country, including stops in Atlanta; Washington, D.C.; Pittsburgh; and Philadelphia before winding down in New York City.

Lesh, who underwent a liver transplant in 1998, will sponsor and appear at several blood drives along the way, including February 10 in Denver.

The blood drives have become part of Lesh’s growing public service activities, in addition to his Unbroken Chain Foundation philanthropy.
