Terrapin Crossroads hosted a 40th birthday bash for ALO guitarist Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz last night in San Rafael, California. The venue’s proprietor, Phil Lesh formed the core band for the evening along with the birthday boy, Mother Hips guitarist Greg Loiacono, multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby and ALO drummer Dave Brogan. The stage was set with balloons spelling out Lebowitz’s nickname.

The quintet delivered a two-hour performance that included versions of Grateful Dead classics such as “China Cat Sunflower,” “The Other One” and “Reuben & Cerise” along with ALO songs like “I Wanna Feel It” and “Falling Dominoes” and more. Brogan led the way on his solo tune “Infinite Eye,” Loiacono fronted the group for his own “Away From The Stones,” while ALO bassist Steve Adams emerged on vocals and maracas for “Falling Dominoes.” A poignant moment came for the “Not Fade Away” finale as Lebo dedicated the tune to scene fixtures Larry & Denise Bressler, who were tragically murdered on Monday morning. “Not Fade Away” also featured keyboardist Jordan Feinstein.
