The Terrapin Family Band, with Phil Lesh, played a free show in the bar at Terrapin, their last before they embark on their East Coast run of shows. For a little east coast flavor, they threw in Bruce Springsteen’s “Atlantic City” with drummer Alex taking the lead vocals. After a year of seasoning in Marin, the Lesh boys, Grahame and Brian, are ready to take it on the road, along with Ross MOTHERFUCKIN’ James on guitar and steel, and Lesh Sr. will Phil the bass spot!

Highlight’s a rollicking uptempo take on Candyman, Brian Lesh’s sweet Standing on the Moon, and Ross James killing it on Samson!  Phil was thunderous, the bar rocked with his boom, and you can tell how much he loves playing with his boys.   Ross tears it up on guitar throughout.  Grahame gets some really wild guitar sounds, and lays down some great leads too.  Alex is a great drummer, always right on it and locked in with Phil.  This is a real fun band, and they’ve gotten really tight in the last year by playing at Terrapin several times a week, and they’re gonna rock it in NYC next week!
