Bob Weir and Phil Lesh, two of the most prominent remaining founding of the Grateful Dead will share the stage from time to time these days, but it’s a rare occasion. Bob has been busy with his Campfire Band and Dead and Company while Phil has been busy grooming his Terrapin Family Band to bring the music to generations to come.
After Bob’s sit-in with Phil at LOCKN’ this year, Weir teamed up with his old bandmate just a few weeks later at Sound Summit. The annual celebration of and fundraiser for Mount Tamalpais State Park has become one of the musical highlights of the fall. In addition to Phil Lesh and Friends featuring Bob Weir, Jim James from My Morning Jacket was also on the bill among other acts.
To kick off the set, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh launched into the ever-illusive acoustic “Dark Star.” Bobby lead Dead and Company in an acoustic “Dark Star” this summer and I guess Phil wanted a part of that action.
As “Dark Star” continued, some more of Phil’s friends took the stage including Ross James and Holly Bowling came out to join the fun. After “Dark Star,” the band launched into a lengthy “Playin’ in the Band.”
About in hour into the set, Jim James came out to sit-in with Phil, Bobby and the rest of the band for “Tennessee Jed.”
The band closed the set with a rockin’ “One More Saturday Night” before taking their bow.
