Bob Weir and Friends’ "Move Me Brightly" Fulfills Its Promise

Last night’s Move Me Brightly event at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios proved a fitting tribute to Jerry Garcia. The evening opened with a documentary directed by Justin Kreutzmann and hosted by Luke Wilson, which presented a variety of musicians offering their reminiscences of Garcia, including: Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, Carlos Santana, Dave Schools, Keller Williams, Perry Farrell, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady, David Hidalgo, Mike Campbell and Sammy Hagar. The music began shortly afterwards and the core band for much of the evening featured Bob Weir, Mike Gordon, Joe Russo, Jeff Chimenti, Donna Jean Godchaux, Neal Casal and Jon Graboff. Gordon did not appear on the first song, however, as Phil Lesh made a surprise appearance (before heading over to Terrapin Crossroad to perform with Yonder Mountain String Band) on a run from “The Wheel” into “Cumberland Blues.” All told, nearly 20 players participated in the event, which offered nearly four and a half hours of music in a high quality stream from TRI. Weir handled his share of vocals but handed off many to his guests, who demonstrated thoughtfulness and passion as they sang a collection of classic Garcia-Hunter compositions (Casal’s “Ship of Fools,” “Gordon’s “Tennesse Jed,” Wilson’s “Mission In The Rain” and Lauderdale’s “Eyes of The World” were among the many highlights). The evening concluded with Weir leading his guests through a moving version of “Ripple,” a final fitting salute to his late friend and bandmate.

The performance will be rebroadcast on Yahoo music and also on SiriusXM’s Grateful Dead Channel.
