Trey Anastasio will be performing with his band at Higher Ground in Winooski, VT on Wednesday, July 4. Although this suprise show sold out in less than an hour, the first set will be webcast via the Digital Club Network for all to enjoy in streaming audio and video starting at 10:30pm EST.
This show will feature the debut performance of Trey’s eight-piece band before they embark on a national coast-to-coast amphitheatre tour beginning July 11 in San Diego.
The gig at Higher Ground will kick off Anastasio’s third solo outing with the same rhythm section –- bassist Tony Markellis and drummer Russ Lawton. Originally a trio when Anastasio toured in the spring of 1999, Anastasio added Dave Grippo on saxophone, Jennifer Hartswick on trumpet and Andy Moroz on trombone for a three week tour this past February. The group of six will become eight this summer when Anastasio adds saxophonist Russell Remington and keyboardist Ray Paczkowski to the mix.
A portion of the proceeds of this concert will go to benefit local youth music education. The Seth Yacovone Band will open.
