Last night’s show was webcast via for Deadheads across the country to enjoy and featured the former Dead bassist teaming up with jazz guitarist John Scofield, Scott Metzger of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, and Terrapin Family Band members Jason Crosby and Alex Koford.The performance began with Lesh counting the band into an uptempo rendition of “Viola Lee Blues”. Scofield wasted no time in grooving into some introductory solo work with some muscular guitar tones coming out of his Fender Telecaster. Koford followed suit in stepping up to the mic to sing on “West L.A. Fadeaway”, followed by a bluesy rendition of “Mr. Charlie” featuring Metzger on vocals. Koford returned to singing duties to bring the energy down just slightly for a trio of early Dead tunes, “He’s Gone”, “Jack Straw”, and “New Speedway Boogie”. The first half of the show came to a close with Koford once again leading the band through their version of “Ramble On Rose”.Phil Lesh & Friends – “Viola Lee Blues” [Pro-Shot] – 1/24/2019[Video:]The talented collection of musicians returned to the stage for set two with Metzger at the mic for “Playing In The Band”.
