Last night’s 2002 Jammys Presented by TDK with an uplifting, marathon version of ‘Lovelight,’ with countless musicians collaborating on both stages at Roseland Ballroom in New York City. RatDog was joined on the main stage by guitarist Trey Anastasio (Phish), Warren Haynes (Govt Mule, Allman Brothers Band), Al Schnier (moe.), harmonica player John Popper (Blues Traveler), drummer Matt Abts (Govt Mule) and DJ Logic.
