Legendary Grateful Dead guitar player Bob Weir brought his band, Ratdog, to the Santa Barbara Bowl on Thursday night.

The night was filled with collaboration and improvisation.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood opened the show in the afternoon heat. Robinson joined Ratdog in the first set for two songs, "Sugaree" and Deal."

Central Coast fiddle player Phil Salazar joined in for the second set jam session. The second set featured many classics, including "Dark Star," "The Other One," "Standing on the Moon."

The encore, "Liberty," was a fitting tribute to send the fans off for the Independence Day weekend.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
