Les Claypool, Jackie Greene, Members of ALO and More Join Bob Weir for Benefit
Bob Weir and Jackie Greene, Les Claypool’s Duo De Twang, ALO’s Steve Adams and Dan Lebowitz, Dan Hicks, RatDog/Primus’ Jay Lane and The Waybacks’ James Nash are among the acts who participated in a benefit concert last night at the 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Marin County, CA. It was Weir’s fourth-annual show in support of the Casa de Milagros orphanage in Peru. In addition to helping out the orphanage, this year’s event also raised money for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
Weir and Greene were backed by Lane and RatDog bassist Robin Sylvester for their headlining performance. The group played an hour long set that peaked during a rendition of Johnny Otis’ “Willie and The Hand Jive” sandwiched between “Dark Star.” The quartet also played a cover of The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence.” For the encore, the band was joined by Les Claypool, Marc Haggard, ALO’s Dan Lebowitz and others for “Not Fade Away.”
