Even though Gov’t Mule was the last set of the evening, Bob Weir’s set was probably the most anticipated of the evening. And it did not disappoint.
Bobby started off with a few acoustic tunes as he did every stop of his campfire tour this fall and then brought some friends out for some Dead tunes. The highlight of the set was this beautiful “Eyes of the World.” The addition of Holly Bowling on keys and Branford Marsalis pushed it to a whole new level.
Holly was all over the place on Saturday night. She played her own set, sat in with Bobby and played interludes in between sets. Known for her Phish piano covers, Holly’s latest project has her exploring the music of the Grateful Dead. Look for her to be a part of many other Dead collaborations in the future.
Thanks to rohbear1 for the excellent footage. He also snagged an incredible “Dreams > Mountain Jam > Drums > Mountain Jam” to close out the evening that is required viewing.
