While Dead and Company are touring from the west coast, to the east coast and everywhere in between, Phil Lesh has been staying local and kicking out the jams at Terrapin Crossroads. Before Phish had their run in San Francisco, Mike Gordon joined Phil Lesh and friends at Terrapin Crossroads for a show dubbed “Big Bass Bash.”
In addition to Mike Gordon, Phil was joined by John Molo, Jackie Greene, Jason Crosby, Barry Sless, Nikki Bluhm, Andy Hall and Andy Falco.
It’s not uncommon for two guitarists to share a stage, but it’s rare to have two legendary bassists share a stage for an entire show. And what a show it was. Phil & Phriends played a ton of Dead and mixed in a couple of classic Phish tunes like Funky Bitch and Yarmouth Road.
I shared the great “Shakedown Street” opener a couple of days ago, but the sound on this recording really showcases the two-bass guitar attack.
Thanks to Jay Blakesburg for the awesome photograph and to Quinfolk for the stream!
