    Video of Phil, Bob and Ross’s performance has surfaced and can be viewed below.

Grateful Dead band mates Bob Weir and Phil Lesh shared the stage earlier today at Terrapin Crossroads’ The Backyard outdoor space in San Rafael, California. The pair’s set, which also featured Ross James, came as part of a ceremony celebrating the reopening of Beach Park which includes Terrapin’s new outdoor stage.

Phil, Bobby and Ross played six songs over the course of 35 minutes this afternoon. The trio kicked off the performance with “When I Paint My Masterpiece” featuring Weir on lead vocals. Bobby was also up front for “Monkey & The Engineer,” “On The Road Again” and “Dark Hollow.” Lesh and Weir shared vocal duties on the versions of “Friend Of The Devil” and “Ripple” that brought the performance to its conclusion. Up until today, Phil and Bobby had only played together publicly once since last summer’s Fare Thee Well show when they were both guests of Midnight North in New York City back in November.

Terrapin Crossroads, which is owned by Phil and his wife Jill Lesh, partnered with the city of San Rafael to turn the underused Beach Park into a community gathering place. The venue signed a renewable seven-year lease to use the park according to the Press Democrat. The Backyard hosted its first concert earlier this month, when Phil Lesh teamed with a band that included all three members of Soulive.
