Featuring: Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Joe Russo and Jeff Chimenti
Phil Lesh is entering his 15th year of playing with a rotating mix of Friends, both old and new. Phil began playing under the moniker Phil Lesh and Friends in 1998, after he’d returned to performing following the death of his friend and band mate Jerry Garcia in 1995. With a varied mixture of some of the best performing musicians in the live music universe, Phil has kept his musical journey fresh by consistently putting together bands featuring dynamic, exciting musicians and singers working together to keep the music of the Grateful Dead moving forward.
Musicians who have joined Phil Lesh and Friends over the years include a who’s who of performers: Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell of Phish, Jorma Kaukonen, David Nelson, John Molo, John Scofield, Greg Osby, Ryan Adams, Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, Joan Osborne, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Bill Payne and Paul Barrere of Little Feat, Chris Robinson, John Medeski, Jackie Greene… and the list goes on and on.
In March 2012, Phil opened Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA. Not just a music venue and restaurant, Terrapin Crossroads has also become a community gathering place with seminars, art exhibits, outdoor music and many other reasons to visit.
Phil performs there often with a roving cast of hugely talented musicians. In addition to the main ballroom, the Grate Room, where the music is mostly played, Phil is dedicated to providing fantastic food at Terrapin Crossroads that brings the same standards of quality to the Dining Room that the music brings to the Grate Room.
2013 marks the return of Phil Lesh & Friends to Mountain Jam.
