Nels Cline to Join Phil Lesh & Friends at the Cap

Wilco guitarist Nels Cline will serve as special guest with Phil Lesh & Friends at Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre on May 29 and 30. The rest of the bassist’s core band will include Joe Russo, John Medeski, John Scofield and John Kadlecik. This is the first time Cline has performed with Lesh, though the bassist sat in with Wilco in 1999 before he joined the band.
Cline and the rest of Wilco collaborated with Bob Weir last summer on the AmericanaramA tour.

Cline is currently touring in support of his new Nels Cline Trio album M A C R O S C O P E. For more on Cline’s new release and connection to the Dead, please click here.

Nels is a talented guy, and jambase has made the case for him to be a “friend” for a year or two. Sadly this format of rotating musicians has made Phil’s band more hit and miss. That’s the fallout for signing the line which is dotted with $$ in your heart and £ in your eyes, and you quit caring that you put out as good a product as you TOURED with in all the years before. The only guys who get tossed in and out without flubbing and stumbling are Warren, Kadlicek and Greene. Oh well, if you would pay people today for work they do tomorrow, they will usually take it and mail it in too because incentives are misaligned. I guess most people wouldn’t even show up and may change their number, but a successful guy knows better like Phil.
