Last night Ween guitarist Mickey “Dean Ween” Melchiondo brought his The Dean Ween Group to New York for a show at Brooklyn Bowl. The evening featured a sit-in by opener, percussionist Mike Dillon as well as guest vocalist Carol Brooks and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead guitarist Scott Metzger.
Brooks was called upon to help sing Ween’s “Freedom of ’76” and also helped out on DWG selections “You Were There” and “Mercedes Benz.” Dillon was brought out at several points as well, contributing to Ween’s “It’s Gonna Be a Long Night” and the band’s “Ritz Carlton.”
Metzger, who plays in JRAD with Ween/DWG bassist Dave Dreiwitz, came on at the end of the set to join in on Ween’s “Tender Situation” followed by “Fingerbangin’” and Ween’s “The Rift” that also featured Dillon.
