Who is Bob Bralove?

Bob Bralove is an auxiliary keyboard–synthesizer player who worked as a sound technician with Grateful Dead starting in 1986 through the 1990s. He was influential on their integration of MIDI technology, first working with drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzman, keyboardist Brent Mydland, and later guitarist Bob Weir and synthesizer/piano player Vince Welnick. He also co-wrote and contributed to such songs as "Picasso Moon", "Way to Go Home", "Easy Answers". Perhaps his biggest project with the band was assembling segments of Dead jams on the 1991 Infrared Roses compilation album. "Parallelogram", "Little Nemo in Nightland" are some of his most notable "compositions" from this release.

In addition to his songwriting, producing, and MIDI programming activities for the Grateful Dead, Bralove is known for his performing and designing with the Grateful Dead and the avant-garde "Drums and Space" segments of their live shows with the Rhythm Devils.

Bralove was also a member and producer of the Psychedelic Keyboard Trio, along with former Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten and the late Vince Welnick, former keyboardist for the Grateful Dead and The Tubes.
