Trey Anastasio Shares New Material

Last night in a recording studio north of Atlanta where he is currently working on his forthcoming studio effort, Trey Anastasio performed two sets of material before a few hundred people. Anastasio was backed by a five piece band which included two keyboardists, both Ray Paczkowski and Les Hall (Howie Day). Each of the two sets clocked in at little over an hour and much of the material was upbeat with extended energetic improvisation. In addition, the first set closed with four solo acoustic songs, one of which, 18 Steps, Anastasio later performed in the second set as a full-on electric number. The acoustic portion of the night concluded with an emotional take on ‘Strange Design. Other compositions over the course of the evening included Gloomy Skies, Goodbye Head and Air Said To Me.
