Warren Haynes’ Weekend with Warren celebration at Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre continued on Friday night. On Thursday Haynes played a solo set that featured appearances from members of Railroad Earth, and on Friday the guitarist played with his Warren Haynes Band.
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band opened Friday’s show and, near the end of Warren Haynes Band’s first set, Dirty Dozen Brass Band trumpeter Efrem “ET” Townes emerged for “In Time.” Then, the rest of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band joined him onstage to help Warren Haynes Band close their first set with “I Wish” and “Man In Motion.” Haynes’ first set also offered a three-song Sly Stone tribute.
After their sit in with Warren Haynes Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band made their way over to Cap principal Peter Shapiro’s Brooklyn Bowl venue for a late night show of their own. Blues Traveler had played the club earlier in the night and John Popper stuck around to sit in with Dirty Dozen during their set. Saxophonist Brian Watson also joined the Dirty Dozen for “Blackbird Special.”
Blues Traveler’s early-evening performance at the Bowl featured some special guests, too. DJ Logic, who played with Popper and Blues Traveler bassist Tad Kinchla in John Popper Project, sat in on “The Path.” The collaboration closed a busy two-night run for Blues Traveler at the Bowl: On Friday, Indian singer Falu sang with the band on “Stand” and fiddler Jason Crosby sat in on a cover of Charlie Daniels Band’s “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”
