Dead & Company Bassist Oteil Burbridge Shares On-Stage Footage From Citi Field
On Sunday night Dead & Company featuring Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir aided by John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti concluded a visit to Citi Field in New York City with an impressive show that included a guest spot from Donna Jean Godchaux. Oteil has just shared footage from Sunday’s concert which gives us an interesting vantage point on the six-piece.
The videos below were shot from the side of the stage and allow viewers to eavesdrop on the communication between band members. For instance, in “St. Stephen” we see Weir rein in Mayer so that the band can conclude the song. In the “Bertha” clip featuring Donna Jean we watch as the members of the group exchange knowing glances throughout, while the “Black Throated Wind” video finds John Mayer looking on with giddiness at Burbridge’s grooving. One of the best parts is getting to witness just how much fun Oteil has on stage. His enthusiasm has been a non-musical highlight of the band’s first two tours.
