Tomorrow evening Radio City Music Hall in New York City will host A Concert For Island Relief to raise funds for Puerto Rico and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands hurricane recovery efforts. Trey Anastasio Band, Dave Matthews, Aaron Neville and Hurray For The Riff Raff are the performers who will come together for a special night of music at the historic NYC venue.
Ahead of tomorrow’s event, Full Show Friday presents video of a concert from 2003 featuring two of the participants in Saturday’s concert: Dave Matthews and Trey Anastasio. The longtime friends and collaborators toured together (while Phish was on hiatus) under the Dave Matthews & Friends moniker in support of Matthews’ 2003 debut solo album Some Devil which the Phish guitarist also contributed to. Dave and Trey both performed at last November’s Spirit Of Life award presentation to Red Light Management founder Coran Capshaw, but they did not appear onstage together.
Like other shows on the Dave & Friends tour, the December 19, 2003 concert at Hartford Civic Center Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Hartford, Connecticut began with Matthews and guitarist Tim Reynolds kicking things off with a duo first set. The second set saw Matthews and Reynolds accompanied by Trey his Trey Anastasio Band mate, keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, as well drummer Brady Blade and bassist Tony Hall. Midway into the set Emmylou Harris came out to add vocals to “Oh Sister” and later Buddy Miller sat-in on The Beatles’ “Hey Bulldog.”
The encore was just Dave and Trey for acoustic takes on Phish’s “Waste” and Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds.” The rest of the band came back for a show ending version of Led Zeppelin’s “Fool In The Rain.” Check out the full show footage via ChesterCopperpot5 below:
