The Trey Anastasio
Band featuring Phish front man Trey Anastasio hit the road on Friday for the first of
two shows in Ohio leading up to the group's Summer Camp Music Festival two-set performance
on Sunday night. TAB visited the House Of Blues in Cleveland on Friday night, where their
return to the road included two debuts. Anastasio also confirmed the band is currently
recording a new album.
Trey and his band presented a pair of tunes they debuted earlier this year - "Bounce" and
"Sometime After Sunset" as well as a number of TAB staples such as "Cayman Review,"
"Burlap Sack and Pumps," "Money Love and Change," "Gotta Jibboo," "Night Speaks To A
Woman," "Plasma," "Sand" and "Push On Till The Day" in Cleveland. The second set featured
the group's version of "Clint Eastwood," the evening's lone cover. Five songs into the
first set, TAB
unveiled "Flying Machines," a ballad penned by Trey. "Flying Machines" was originally
performed earlier this year with different lyrics and a bit of a different arrangement
under the moniker "Pulsing Days." The guitarist mentioned
TAB had recently recorded the
new version. "The Song," which was written by
Anastasio and longtime
writing partner Steve "Dude Of Life" Pollak, was performed in the second set.
