Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Taj Mahal & More Play Private Party In Hawaii For New Year’s

Grateful Dead musicians Bob Weir and Bill Kreutzmann got the celebrity treatment over New Year’s Eve, as they celebrated the holiday at a star-filled private engagement in Hawaii. The two collaborated with Heartbreakers’ guitarist Mike Campbell, as well as keyboardist Todd Stoops and bassist Reed Mathis. According to Stoops, a similar band also backed up blues legend Taj Mahal at the event, who had stumbled upon the party while walking down the beach.

Stoops said, “What a way to ring in a new year! It will be hard to top it in years to come!! I had the honor of playing my favorite music with Billy Kreutzmann, Bob Weir, Mike Campbell and Reed Mathis – then ringing in the new year backing up Taj Mahal with the same cats. Unreal.”

A slew of A-list celebrities were in attendance at the high profile party, including Ben Stiller.
