Last night Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh held the second of two Phil Lesh & Friends concerts at Ford Amphitheatre At Coney Island Boardwalk in New York City. Lesh was again joined by the same eight musicians who also shared the stage with the 76-year-old Wednesday night in Brooklyn.
Lesh performed alongside a lineup of guitarist Jackie Greene, saxophonist/flutist Karl Denson, keyboardist Jason Crosby, Lettuce’s The Shady Horns and all three members of Soulive: guitarist Eric Krasno, keyboardist Neal Evans and drummer Alan Evans. The ensemble kicked off the night with J.J. Cale’s “After Midnight” and punctuated the show with an encore of Wilson Pickett’s bluesy “In The Midnight Hour.”
Between “Midnight” tunes the first set saw takes on several Grateful Dead staples such as “Brown-Eyed Women,” “Bertha” and the set closer “Sugaree.” The second set opened with “Playing In The Band” followed by a take on Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy.” Set two also saw a sequence of “Dark Star” > “Scarlet Begonias” > “Fire On The Mountain” > “Scarlet Begonias” and ended with another blues standard, “Turn On Your Lovelight.” Audio of the concert was taped by Z-Man and shared by JamBuzz can be streamed below:
