As the Phish faithful anxiously await the band’s annual summer-closing three-night Labor Day Weekend run at Commerce City, CO’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, Live For Live Music is excited to announce a special, Phish-y afterparty.
On Friday, August 30th, following the first night of Phish at Dick’s, Live For Live Music‘s monthly Denver residency, The Funk Sessions, will transform into The Phunk Sessions to keep fans dancing late into the night at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom.
The Phunk Sessions will be led by New Orleans music icon and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award-winning bassist, George Porter Jr. (The Meters). Joining Porter at The Phunk Sessions will be organ master Robert Walter (Mike Gordon, 20th Congress, Greyboy Allstars) as well as Turkuaz members Michelangelo Carubba (drums), Craig Brodhead (guitar), and Shira Elias (vocals) and The Motet members Lyle Divinsky (vocals), Drew Sayers (saxophone), and Parris Fleming (trumpet).
