On January 2, 2015 bassist Phil Lesh brought together a group of his musical friends at his Terrapin Crossroads venue in San Rafael, California to perform songs from the Grateful Dead’s 1965 repertoire, which was the year the band was formed. Ever since Phil and versions of his Phil Lesh & Friends ensembles have recreated Dead shows from each year the band was active culminating with a recreation of a 1995 Grateful Dead concert at Terrapin Crossroads last night.
Lesh picked the show the Dead played at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. on June 24, 1995 for Monday night’s concert. Since Bruce Hornsby sat-in with the Dead that night, Phil utilized a two-keyboardist lineup at Terrapin on Monday. Phil Lesh’s band for the 1995 Grateful Dead tribute consisted of guitarists Stu Allen and Grahame Lesh, keyboardists Danny Eisenberg and Scott Guberman and drummers Ezra Lipp and Alex Koford.
Monday’s concert featured rare Phil & Friends versions of Vince Welnick’s “Way To Go Home” and The Beatles’ “That Would Be Something.” Guberman handled vocals on “Way To Go Home.” Lesh and Jay Blakesberg gave a talk about the year 1995 in Grateful Dead history and beyond as part of Monday’s festivities.
