Unannounced Guests Join In as Jackie Greene, Anders Osborne Sit Out Phil & Friends Show

Phil Lesh and Friends had to pull a few audibles last night at Terrapin Crossroads, as both Jackie Greene and Anders Osborne sat out the show due to the flu (Osborne also made an early exit from Thursday night’s show because of his illness). The group—Lesh, Adam MacDougall, Joe Russo and Ross James—enlisted Danny Click, Tom Hamilton, Jason Crosby, Alex Koford and Emily Sunderland to help out at various points throughout the performance.

Click took up guitar for the show opening “After Midnight,” with Hamilton replacing him for the following “Scarlet Begonias.” Click then returned for “Girl From The North Country” before Crosby joined the fray for “Cumberland Blues.” Next, Hamilton came back for “Brown Eyed Women” and “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo” and Crosby helped the band close out the set the set with “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.”

Terrapin Family Band’s Alex Koford held down percussion for the entire second set, which kicked off with a “Viola Lee Blues” that featured Click, Hamilton and Crosby. The tune played into “Folsom Prison Blues” before moving back into “Viola Lee Blues” and eventually turning into an “Unbroken Chain” that then segued into “Viola Lee Blues” once again. Hamilton and Crosby stuck around for a take on The Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane” and Bob Dylan’s “Hurricane,” which was followed by a “Drums.” Hamilton then returned as the percussion jam moved into “Eyes of the World” and “China Cat Sunflower” before he was replaced by Click and Crosby for a set-ending “I Know You Rider.” The show finally wrapped up as Hamilton, Click, Crosby and vocalist Emily Sunderland all joined the band for “Turn On Your Lovelight.”

Lesh will continue his Terrapin Crossroads birthday celebration tonight and tomorrow. The bassist turns 74 today.
