Full Show Video: Holly Bowling & Tom Hamilton Perform With Phil & Friends At Terrapin Crossroads


Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh hosted Phriendsgiving: A Musical Celebration last night at his Terrapin Crossroads venue in San Rafael, California. The evening featured a two set performance by Phil Lesh & Friends featuring pianist Holly Bowling, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead/American Babies guitarist Tom Hamilton and others.

Lesh, Bowling and Hamilton were joined by The Terrapin Family Band guitarist Ross James and drummer Alex Koford as the ensemble opened with the Dead classic “Cream Puff War.” James led the group through a rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Tangled Up In Blue,” and the rest of the set was made up of Grateful Dead favorites with Phil singing “Lazy River Road,” which was followed by Midnight North’s Elliott Peck and Grahame Lesh sitting-in on “Bertha” and “Tennessee Jed.” The guests exited before the trio of “Help On The Way” > “Slipknot!” > “Franklin’s Tower” closed out the set.

“Here Comes Sunshine” was led by Hamilton to start off set two and he and Phil teamed up on the “Viola Lee Blues” that opened into a tease-filled jam that landed on “Dark Star.” Next came “Eyes Of The World” which has been hinted at earlier in the improvisation that preceded it. A return to “Dark Star” and a trip to “Terrapin Station” filled out the back half of the set, which was closed with “Deal.” A singalong “Ripple” closed out the Phriendsgiving festivities at TXR.
