Phil Lesh Quintet Covers The Band & Cream At Capitol Theatre

8

Phil Lesh brought the Phil Lesh Quintet back to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York on Tuesday for the lineup’s second of three shows at the venue as part of a nine-concert Phil Lesh & Friends residency. The Grateful Dead bassist, keyboardist Rob Barraco, guitarists Jimmy Herring and Warren Haynes and drummer John Molo — aka “The Q” — mixed songs from the Dead’s live repertoire with The Band and Cream covers as well as two traditional songs to form the evening’s setlist.

The five-piece took “St. Stephen” deep to open last night’s first set. “St. Stephen” gave way to “The Eleven” which bled into a Barraco-sung “Eyes Of The World.” Haynes delivered the first solo before Herring tore into a solo of his own ahead of a segue into “Mountains Of The Moon.” Phil handled lead vocals on the Aoxomoxoa classic. Next up was a take on The Band’s “Acadian Driftwood,” a staple for the lineup. The frame came to a close with traditional tunes “Wayfaring Stranger” and “Angel Band.” Haynes was tasked with singing both songs.

Tuesday’s second set began with an expansive “Uncle John’s Band” that spanned well over the 20-minute mark. “The Q” strayed far from the song’s normal structure on the improvisational highlight of the night. From there, the five-piece played the Lesh/Haynes-penned “No More Do I” from Phil’s 2002 album, There And Back Again. “Bird Song” flew next fronted by Phil and featuring impressive interplay between Barraco, Haynes and Herring. The Phil Lesh Quintet then dug in on “The Wheel.”

Phil, Warren, Jimmy, Rob and John delivered an emotion-laden “Terrapin Station” next to the delight of the crowd. Last night’s second set then ended with a 14-minute “Morning Dew” sung with authority by Warren Haynes. Phil Lesh began the encore with his typical “Donor Rap” and noted it had been nearly 23 years since he received a liver transplant. “The Q” said farewell with a well-jammed cover of Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love” as the encore.
