Sept. 06--Grateful Dead co-founder Bob Weir of Mill Valley has been awarded the IROCKE Sound+Vision Award for his innovative live webcasts from his TRI Studios in San Rafael.
The award was presented to Weir during his live streamed "Weir Here" webcast Wednesday by IROCKE CEO Karl Rogers, co-founder of the Live Digital Music Association, a trade group for digital music professionals.
"My company has been tracking every live streaming performance in the past two years," Rogers said, "and you're the best."
IROCKE is an online source for live streaming concerts worldwide.
After Rogers said TRI "represents the future of live music," Weir, who still tours regularly with Furthur and his band Ratdog, responded, saying live streaming represents "a future of live music."
"Weir Here," streamed live on Wednesday evenings when Weir is in town, has featured such guests as his Grateful Dead bandmate Phil Lesh, John Doe, Keller Williams, Lukas Nelson, Jackie Greene and many up and coming young musicians. He calls TRI and its uber high-tech Constellation system studio, "the ultimate playpen for musicians."
