Q258 Goes 70v
Due to drummer Raymond Webers case of acute appendicitis, he will not joining Trey Anastasios 70 Volt Parade for its upcoming fall tour. In his stead, however, Anastasio will rekindle a longstanding relationship, by inviting Jeff Apt. Q258 Sipe to join him on the road. Anastasio first encountered the Aquarium Rescue Unit drummer when Phish and the ARU shared gigs in the early nineties. In statement on his web site, the guitar player explains, ‘I remember the first time I saw Jeff play, Phish and Widespread Panic shared a bill at the Georgia Theatre in Athens and Dave Schools and I went to see the ARU after our gig. It was the first show the ARU played with Jimmy Herring but what I remember most is being absolutely blown away by Jeff’s playing. When I sat in with Phil at the Beacon and Jeff was on drums, it brought back such good memories, we really reconnected that night. I’ve been dying for another chance to play with him and we’re both very excited about the possibilities.’ The tour opens on October 8 at New York Citys Webster Hall.
