Jon Trafton, Reid Genauer, Erik Glockler and Luke Smith welcomed a pair of old friends to the stage during their set at Vibes '13. Grateful Dead historian, radio host and performer David Gans sat in with Strangefolk for a cover of "Shakedown Street," while God Street Wine / Phil Lesh Friend / Assembly of Dust multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby guested on "Westerly" and "Speculator." Guitarist Jon Trafton also tipped his hat towards jam giants Phish by teasing "Bathtub Gin." "Roads," "Reuben's Place" and "Alaska" were among the other songs Strangefolk performed at Vibes.
