After concluding a three-night reunion run at 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado, all but one member of Ween headed to nearby Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver to join the Mike Dillon Band. Guitarist Mickey “Dean Ween” Melchiondo, keyboardist Glenn McClelland, bassist Dave Dreiwitz and drummer Claude Coleman Jr. all sat-in at the post-show.
While Coleman Jr.’s guest spot with The Mike Dillon Band had been previously announced, the other members of Ween were surprise sit-ins. Upon taking the stage, Melchiondo reportedly told the audience, “This is my favorite touring band in America! I’m not kidding I stay up til 2 a.m. watching their YouTubes all the time.”
Deaner was up first, augmenting what resulted in an extended jam, followed by McClelland emerging for The Dead Kennedys’ “Kill The Poor” and The Stooges “1969.” Four of the five members of Ween were then on stage as Dreiwitz came out for an lengthy take on the The Stooges’ “No Fun.” Below watch audience-shot footage of Deaner jamming with the band posted by Jon Weber, followed by “Kill The Poor” captured by pmforbin, and clips of “No Fun” from thegaz and bhoeber:
