Bob Weir & Phil Lesh Share Stage With Midnight North

Last night Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir shared the stage at the intimate confines of SOB’s in New York City, where both men sat-in with Midnight North. Phil was an expected guest, but Bobby was a surprise. Lesh is in the Big Apple between weekend runs at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, while Weir had an off day in Manhattan before Dead & Company tour picks back up tonight.

The action at SOB’s started with a Cosmic Twang set. Phil, Grahame Lesh and Alex Koford sat-in with the Ross James-led band on “Big Railroad Blues.” Midnight North’s first guest was Weir, who had led the band through a brief set at a benefit last month. Bobby fronted the band on both “West L.A. Fadeaway” and “Looks Like Rain.” Then, the unlikely reunion happened when Phil emerged to join his old bandmate and son’s band on “Mr. Charlie” and “Playing In The Band.” Bobby left after that point, but the elder Lesh also contributed to “Cumberland Blues,” “Bird Song,” “Wind And Roses” and “Unbroken Chain.”

Midnight North continues a rare Northeast Tour tonight and tomorrow with Phil & Friends after shows at Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester.
