If there one thing I have learned since starting Jam Buzz, there is always a party happening at Terrapin Crossroads and the same band never plays twice. It seems as if Phil Lesh is always dropping in on an ever evolving cast of talented musicians.
Last night, Phil Lesh joined Scott Law and Friends which included Grahame Lesh, Dave Zirbel, Brian Rashap & Jeremy Hoenig. The gig was landed on the night before the winter solstice and kicked off with the appropriate Dead cover of “Cold Rain and Snow.”
The gig was played in the bar and had a very easy feel to it. Long pauses in between songs to discuss the next one the band would play and Phil chatting up people in the crowd punctuated the set. Some criticize Lesh for not going on the road, but looking at him playing with friends in his bar, in his hometown, can you really blame him for not wanting to go on the road?
