Founding member of The Grateful Dead and latest band project fuse together folk & psych rock to perform a set of Jerry Garcia Band music plus a full set of Dead tunes and more
PHIL LESH & THE TERRAPIN FAMILY BAND Like so many other musical endeavors that Phil Lesh of The Grateful Dead has been a part of, The Terrapin Family Band grew naturally and spontaneously out of something special. In this case, it was the unique environment that he fostered at Terrapin Crossroads, the music venue that he recently opened in Marin County, CA.
Using The Grateful Dead songbook as a springboard for reinterpretation and as an inspiration to create original materal, the TFB musicians were inspired as much by one another as they were by the diverse group of influences that they brought to the table; as a result, the music conveyed friendship, respect, warmth, and companionship for listeners and performers alike.
Featuring Ross James, Grahame Lesh, Jason Crosby, and Alex Koford with special guests Melvin Seals and Nicki Bluhm
