Steve Bernstein to Join My Morning Jacket on New Years Eve
Sex Mob slide trumpeter Steve Bernstein will perform with My Morning Jacket on New Years Eve. As previously reported, My Morning Jacket will ring in 2009 with an evening with performance at New Yorks Madison Square Garden. It is going to be a sequel to the continual New Years saga that we started in 2006-2007, Jim James told Jambands.com earlier this year. So that will be part two of our epic Oregon trial saga. We died and ascended to heaven on the stairway to heaven. Part two will start in heaven and continue onwards.
My Morning Jacket is also expected to pay tribute to Led Zeppelin during the night. While the exact nature of his collaboration is still unknown, Bernstein will likely sit in with the group at various points throughout the night, much like Jeff Coffin did at Bonnaroo this past June.
In addition to his work with Sex Mob and Millennial Terrritory Orchestra, Bernstein has spent a good portion of the last year on the road with the Levon Helm Band. He will join the drummer for a Midnight Ramble this Saturday.
