Dickey Betts, Tesla Guitarist, Mike Gordon Sit In With moe.
moe. welcomed a number of guest musicians Saturday night in Las Vegas at the House of Blues, Mandalay Bay. At the close of the first set Dickey Betts emerged to add a third guitar to ‘Mexico.’ He returned at the start of the second set with Phish’s Mike Gordon on bass for two ABB staples, ‘Southbound’ and ‘In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.’ Betts’ son-in-law, Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon came out for the encore on Dickey’s Les Paul to contribute some classic metal riffs on ‘Sweet Emotion.’ This was the first time that the band had performed ‘Liz Reed’ as moe. continues to drop in new covers each night, as the preceding two evenings in CA the group played ‘Paranoid,’ ‘Stand By Your Man,’ and the apt ‘Hotel California.’
moe. performs tonight at the EMP Sky Church in Seattle. Details can be found at the band’s recently revamped web site.
