    PHIL LESH is entering his 15th year of playing with a rotating mix of friends, both old and new.  Phil began playing under the moniker PHIL LESH & FRIENDS in 1998, after he’d returned to performing following the death of his friend and band mate Jerry Garcia in 1995. 

     With a varied mixture of some of the best performing musicians in the live music universe, Phil has kept his musical journey fresh by constantly and consistently putting together bands featuring dynamic, exciting musicians and singers working together toward keeping the music of the Grateful Dead moving forward into the future. 

    The friends on this tour include the ultra-talented GRAHAME LESH, ROSS JAMES, SCOTT LAW, ALEX KOFORD & JASON CROSBY for a groovy tie-dye kind of night not to be missed.

” We found you in our rental car at 5 am last Thursday morning heading up to catch sunrise on Haleakala.  It really got us going, song after song blowing us away—Red Molly, Leadbelly, Afro-beat, Mingus, Chuck Brown—more women than usual too—Norah Jones?   Many we could only guess at. Within 24 hours of being home, we’d both looked  you up online. And I promise—I’ve never fallen in love with a radio station before. 

Best wishes to you—best music we’ve ever heard over genre after genre”

-Louisa Davis, an island visitor from Reston, Virginia
