Trey Anastasio Band rounded out their two night run at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY with the debut of “Silver Light” on Saturday night.
TAB kicked the night off with the feel-good “Everything’s Right” before the horn-dominated “Cayman Review”. They then worked through “Acting The Devil”, “Alive Again” and “Sometime After Sunset”. A banter-less pause ensued before they launched into the debut of “Silver Light”.

The song began with excellent harmonies from Natalie Cressman and Jennifer Hartswick while Tony Markellis (bass), Cyro Baptista (percussion), and Russ Lawton (drums) kept a tight groove in the pocket. Compounding upon the rhythm section, Anastasio layered elegant phrases on the guitar and poignant lyrics atop the mix.
Before “Mozambique”, Trey told the crowd, “this one features the incredible Natalie “Chainsaw” Cressman”. “Ocelot” followed before “Curlew’s Call” and “Rise/Come Together” brought set one to a close.
Set two began with a rendition of “Burlap Sack And Pumps” before “46 Days” and “Magilla”. They jumped into the bass-dominated “Sand”. Here, the horn section of Cressman, Hartswick, and James Casey, along with keys player Ray Paczkowski, shined through. They added their signature accents during the vocal sections before providing a rock-solid base for Trey to solo over during the extensive jam section.

“A Life Beyond The Dream”, originally debuted by Ghosts of the Forest, came next and was complete with excellent harmonies. “Liquid Time”, “Heavy Things”, and “Traveler” followed before they segued to “Mr. Completely”. The eight-minute “Mr. Completely” then segued to “Dark And Down” before “First Tube” closed out the second set.
