Phil Lesh’s Prom Night
Phil Lesh hosted the first Terrapin Crossroads Prom at his San Rafael, CA club last night. The bassist performed with The Terrapin Family Band: Grahame Lesh (guitar, vocals), Brian Lesh (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Ross James (guitar, vocals), Alex Koford (drums, vocals) and Emily Sunderland (vocals).
Instead of a set of traditional prom ballads and current radio hits, Lesh offered a unique set of prom songs drawn from the extended Grateful Dead catalog. Those songs included “Big Railroad Blues,” “Althea,” “Brown-Eyed Women,” The Band’s “Up on Cripple Creek,” “Loose Lucy,” “El Paso,” “Ramble on Rose,” Tim Bluhm’s “Squeaky Wheel,” “Samson & Delilah” and “Ripple.” The elder Lesh also had the honor of announcing the evening’s prom king and queen.
