Phil Lesh Joins J. Geils and Friends at Terrapin Crossroads, Confirms Yoshi’s Date

Massachusetts’ J. Geils and Friends are in the Bay Area for a performance at Bob Weir’s Mill Valley, CA club Sweetwater this evening. Last night, the group also played an impromptu gig at Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads. The band came out and did a couple songs before Lesh joined in for “Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad” and “Turn On Your Love Light.” Later in the night, Lesh returned for an encore of “It Hurts Me Too” and “Let the Good Times Roll.” The performance took place in Terrapin Crossroads’ intimate bar performance space and was advertised on the club’s homepage as “Special FREE bar show tonight.”

In other news, Geils has confirmed that Lesh will join his band at San Francisco, CA’s Yoshi’s on Sunday.

That was awesome last night. The high light was Jeff Pitchell and Phil Leah, just getting into it. I saw Phil sitting on the stairs, while the hot guitarist Jeff Pitchell jammed, phil was loving it, smiling and clapping. Then Phil came down to join it, wow, that was hot, they seemed as if they had been playing with each other for years! J.Geils came out, very low keyed, but once everyone came back together, it was unique, seeing Geils, Lesh and Pitchell letting the good times roll! It’s a given, that J.Geils and Phil Lesh are the names, that everyone knows, but if this was Pitchell’s first time to California, he made it known that he is here for serious business. If you jump in and outshine, the Hall of Fame nominee, Geils,, with his tasty lead, reminds of SRV, and have Lesh, to bounce off of, like it was a major impact, we are sure to hear from Pitchell in the future! I’m still saying WOW!

I’ve collected LP’s for over 35 years & picks for 25+. All the picks I have, I have ehiter got my bumps & bruises getting them or the ones I have bought have certificates of authenticity. I don t just take COA lightly. A good example would be Craig Hopkins with his collection of not only picks, but lots of other rare items from the late GREAT Stevie Ray Vaughan. I also am the type that wants a pick that has been used to make music. Cheap Trick throws them in the crowd by the hand full. Last pick I got from Warren Haynes, he had used for over 45 minutes. That’s the one I want. In between songs he started rubbing the edges & I knew he was about to toss it. He did & I was right there. Also know ahead of time what side of the stage YOUR MAN or WOMAN is going to be singing, since the picks are sometimes stuck to the mic stand, I feel that is the best place for a score. Be cautious what you buy & always carry a couple of bandades in your pocket to get to your treasures. Good Luck.
