Last night, March 11th, The Infamous Stringdusters settled into the Park West venue in Chicago, IL for a barn burner of a performance. The show came along the band’s “Ladies & Gentlemen” tour, featuring the vocal stylings of Nicki Bluhm. Bluhm and the Stringdusters are a match made in heaven, as evidenced by their recent collaborative performance on Jam Cruise.
Their performance in Chicago did not disappoint, as the group got their Phish on with a cover of “Bathtub Gin,” as captured by Phishatthemann below:
The band also played a cover of “Ginseng Sullivan,” originally by Norman Blake but certainly popularized in the jam scene by its inclusion in the Phish repertoire. Watch that video below, though beware of the mislabeled title:
The show concluded with an encore of Grateful Dead’s “Deal,” and you can watch the monster jam at the end of that cover thanks to Anjenete Wey.
