Saturday Dead: Phil & Friends at The Warfield

Words By J-man

Phil Lesh & Friends is one of the most interesting post Grateful Dead projects. The rotating door of top notch/premier musicians elevates the project to a near unimaginable level. There have been a lot of special Phil & Friends shows, but this three night run at The Warfield in San Francisco is some of the best material output by this great musical powerhouse.

The line-up included: Phil Lesh, John Molo, Jimmy Herring, Chris Robinson, Barry Sless, Steve Molitz, Tim Carbone, Gloria Jones, John Skehan and Dave Ellis. The setlists run deep, and the music and instrumentation even deeper.
