Boyd Tinsley Joins Phil and Friends for Full Show at The Capitol Theatre

Boyd Tinsley joined Phil Lesh and Friends for the entirety of last night’s show, as the current incarnation of the band—Lesh, John Kadlecik, Larry Campbell, Teresa Williams, Jeff Chimenti and Joe Russo—continued their four-night run at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. The first set kicked off with a “Didn’t You Show Me A Sign Jam” before moving into a cover of Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy” that became Robbie Robertson’s “Broken Arrow.” The rest of the set also included renditions of Gillian Welch’s “Look at Miss Ohio,” the traditional “Stagger Lee” and Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt” before closing out with “Attics of My Life.”

The second set featured a few more Grateful Dead tunes, as well as a number of The Band covers. “St. Stephen” got things going before moving into a “Last Leaf Fallen Jam” that segued into “Ain’t No More Cane on this Bravos.” Another The Band tune, “Endless Highway,” came next before “Here Comes Sunshine” and “Mountain Song.” The set then came to a close as the group worked The Band’s “Chest Fever” into a “Help on the Way” > “Slipknot” > “Franklin’s Tower.” The group then returned for a “Sugaree” encore that ended the show.

As previously reported, Phil Lesh and Friends will continue their run at The Capitol Theatre tonight and tomorrow. Tinsley is set to join the group as a special guest for both of those nights, though there’s no telling whether he’ll play a few songs, as was the case on Wednesday night, or if he’ll stick around for the entire show.

Here’s a look at last night’s setlist as it appears in our Box Scores page
