In March, Phil Lesh announced a new pair of Phil & Friends shows at his east coast home-away-from-home, Port Chester, NY’s The Capitol Theatre. The recently revealed dates will take place on Tuesday, June 11th and Wednesday, June 12th. The shows were initially billed as Phil Lesh & Friends featuring iconic guitar Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna.
On Friday, Phil Lesh revealed the entirety of his band for the upcoming run, including guitarist Grahame Lesh, drummer John Molo, and keyboardist Rob Barraco. Molo and Barraco were longtime members of the Phil Lesh Quintet, also known as “The Q”, a favorite Grateful Dead offshoot following the death of Jerry Garcia in August 1995. Lesh and Jorma’s history dates back decades, as the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane were prominent bands and comrades during the late-1960’s counterculture movement in San Francisco.
