Trey Anastasio Announces Return Of Keyboardist Ray Paczkowski


Keyboardist Ray Paczkowski will rejoin Trey Anastasio for the first time since undergoing successful surgery to remove a brain tumor in March. The Trey Anastasio Trio performance on July 5 will now feature the Classic TAB lineup.

Guitarist Trey Anastasio, drummer Russ Lawton and bassist Tony Markellis will welcome The Milkman back to the stage to supply keyboards during their show at Sprint Pavilion in Charlottesville, Virginia. Anastasio is currently also slated to appear on July 6 in New York City and on July 7 at the Levitate Festival in Marshfield, Massachusetts. There is no word as of yet if Paczkowski will perform with the trio at those concerts.

Paczkowski’s illness was revealed in March following an emergency room visit precipitated by bouts of headaches and nausea. Since then, Anastasio, Lawton and Markellis have performed as the Trey Anastasio Trio.

Tickets to the Charlottesville show are available here.
