Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band heads east!
Formed from weekly shows at Phil Lesh's Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA, the Terrapin Family Band has become the venue's official house band. Terrapin Crossroads' constant free bar shows, often featuring bandleader Phil, have created an opportunity for the young musicians of Terrapin Crossroads' crew to perform together and with a diverse cast of visiting musicians. Through playing in this setting, and with ongoing mentoring from Phil - Brian Lesh, Grahame Lesh, Ross James, Scott Padden, and Alex Koford have grown into a richly nuanced and fun band, throwing down originals, old country and rock songs, murder ballads, Grateful Dead tunes, and more.
For the first time, the Terrapin Family Band will be taking their sound to the East Coast, performing five nights in New York June 4-8 with Phil Lesh. When not on the road with Phil, you can find the Terrapin Family Band at the Terrapin Crossroads bar every Wednesday night at ~8:30pm and every Sunday afternoon at 12:30pm (for brunch).
