Phil Lesh & Friends wrapped up a three-night run through Colorado on Saturday with a performance at Planet Bluegrass in Lyons. Last night’s setlist was loaded with Grateful Dead classics from nearly every era of the legendary band’s career.
Bassist Phil Lesh, guitarists Stu Allen and Grahame Lesh, drummer John Molo and keyboardist Holly Bowling opened with a Phil-sung “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo” and a “West L.A. Fadeaway” led by Stu. The band then dug in on American Beauty gem “Til The Morning Comes” before performing “So Many Roads.” Phil Lesh & Friends capped Saturday’s first set with a pairing of “Crazy Fingers” and “Deal.”
The quintet worked “Eyes Of The World” within “Dark Star” to get last night’s second set underway. “St. Stephen” emerged from the end of “Dark Star.” Phil and his mates connected “St. Stephen” and “Cryptical Envelopment” with improv based on the “Mountain Jam” theme and then played “New Speedway Boogie.” Up next was “Sugaree” ahead of a set-closing “Uncle John’s Band.” The show and run came to a close with an encore featuring “King Solomon’s Marbles” and “Touch Of Grey.”
