Phil Lesh’s New and Old Friends
Phil Lesh celebrated Independence Day weekend by hosting an intimate show at Mill Valley, CAs Sweetwater Saloon as part of a weekend long Homeward Bound project. The gig featured a new group of friends, including longtime drummer John Molo, guitarist Barry Sless, Particle keyboardist Steve Molitz and rising Monterey, CA guitarist Jackie Greene. The ensemble ran through two sets of music over the course of the evening, including a show opening Bird Song, Greenes Ramble On, the Allman Brothers Bands Midnight Rider, Ryan Adams Let It Ride, Viola Lee Blues, Eyes of the World and a show closing Casey Jones. From the stage Lesh also dedicated the entire evening to ailing RatDog guitarist Mark Karan.
