Phil Lesh and a special line-up of friends took over Coney Island last night for the first of two shows. The cast of friends included some familiar faces like Jackie Greene and Eric Krasno. Karl Denson, who has jammed with Phil recently on the west coast, also joined in on the fun last night. The rhythm brothers from Soulive, Neal and Alan Evans and Jason Crosby rounded out the line-up.
Denson’s contribution on the saxophone and flute give the music a whole new dimension. Jackie Greene and Eric Krasno on dueling guitars make for a great night of Dead music on a beautiful night down on the boardwalk.
