The Phil Lesh Quintet, containing Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, Rob Barraco, and John Molo, will be performing at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in Forest Hills, NY, on September 21st. The concert, organized by The Capitol Theatre and Madison House Presents, will see the longest tenured “Phil Lesh & Friends” lineup return to NYC for the first time since 2003.After numerous incantations, Phil Lesh settled into a quintet with Haynes (guitar; Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule), Herring (guitar; The Dead, Allman Brothers, Aquarium Rescue Unit, now Widespread Panic), Barraco (keyboards; The Dead, Dark Star Orchestra) and Molo (drums; Bruce Hornsby, John Fogerty, Keller Williams). The veteran musicians toured regularly from 2000-2003, but peacefully disbanded thereafter. Each has since performed as part of Phil Lesh & Friends throughout the years, but this marks the first reunion of the Quintet.Tickets for the show will go on sale this Monday, August 4th, at 10 AM Eastern time. You can find them here.-David Melamed (@DMelamz)

– Marisa Frydman (@musicalmarisa) Last night, a small group of hard-core Mumford & Sons fans gathered at NYC’s (le) poisson rogue for the hottest ticket in town, an intimate secret show announced by the Grammy winning folk-rock band only 24 hours before. The 700-member audience, studded with celebrities and music industry professionals, grew more excited as each moment drew closer to the band’s entrance. The price for the event itself was right at $40 a ticket, that is if you were lucky enough to get a ticket before they quickly sold out only minutes after going on sale. And as the four gentlemen of Mumford & Sons took the stage, the energy in the small Greenwich Village venue was electric.There were however, two glaring, catches at the sold out performance, and the first occurred before crowd members set foot in the venue itself. Upon checking in, all audience members were required to hand over their cell phones, as per the band’s request. This was due to the second catch of the evening, the fact that Mumford & Sons would be previewing new music off of their upcoming unreleased album, Wilder Mind, and they did not want it recorded or released to the public. What I didn’t realize is that only new music would be played, the only song that the crowd was familiar with was their recently released single “Believe”. Those in attendance essentially became human guinea pigs for the band as they tested out new material on us and gaged our reaction accordingly. Marcus Mumford even offered his thanks to us all for doing so.The intimate secret show last night was very interesting to say the least and while I cannot tell you the tempos or styles of any particular song that was played last night, it’s safe to say this. If the song selection at last night’s show is any indication, then expect the band to stick with the identity that they have already established. For some, it may be disappointing to hear that their song-writing style did not morph, grow, or evolve into something new and fresh since the release of their widely praised album Babel. However, it was still very cool to see such a larger than life band in an intimate setting and so appreciative of their fans. Although the music they played left something to be desired, Mumford & Sons succeeded in putting on a good ol’ rock show at an unlikely venue. It was nice to see a band that famous give back to their biggest fans and supporters, it is certainly an experience they will not forget. See below for last night’s set list:
Hollingsworth and moe. closed out the show with an encore version of “Crab Eyes.” You can see the full setlist below:Setlist Set One: Captain America > Akimbo >(nh) Waiting For The Punchline, Skrunk > The Bones Of Lazarus, Hi & Lo > Billy Goat, Downward Facing Dog, Willin’* Blue Jeans Pizza*Encore: Crab Eyes * – w/ Kyle Hollingsworth on keys(via moe. Facebook) Moe. and String Cheese worlds collided last night in Asheville, NC, as moe. was joined by SCI keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth for three songs at the end of the show. Hollingsworth’s solo band was the opener for moe., and he has sat in with the jam band in the past, so the collaboration wasn’t too surprising.Hollingsworth came out for a cover of Little Feat’s “Willin’,” and stayed on for the band’s original tune, “Blue Jean Pizza.” As Jambase points out, Hollingsworth’s last appearance with moe. was a memorable one, as the keyboardist came out in full cow costume at the 2011 Summer Camp Music Festival. You can watch footage of that below:

Precious Hill for my homies Dynohunter. The original is a soulful house track and I tried to flip it into a super laid back summertime jam. This track is definitely different from my normal sound but I had a great time making and hope you all enjoy.”Late Night Radio (aka Alex Medellin) is a producer on-the-rise in Denver, CO.

#NYC we’re home right now at The Capitol Theatre but we’ll be home again in March at Stage 48 and PlayStation Theater!Posted by Moe. on Saturday, November 14, 2015 Load remaining images The energy kept going with “Skrunk”, a groovy melody that opened up wide as Schnier took off into another dimension with his fierce guitar jam. Psychedelic undertones and jazzy funk played out before a smooth transition into “Time Ed.” Loughlin and Amico showcased their instruments with a pounding drum performance before mellowing out with the mallet cat. The band joined in and just tore this jam up with scorching energy.“Blue Jeans Pizza” was heavy with bongos before moe. mashed things up with “Punchline.” The band playfully swayed back and forth from “Punchline” into teases of Eddie Money’s “Two Tickets to Paradise.” This incredible mash-up was piano heavy, as guest Nate Wilson rolled up and down the black and whites. The jam was then thrown over to Schnier and Garvey as they shredded into outerspace.The evening cooled off as they took things down a notch with a relaxed funk jam, before going back into “Punchline” then easing into a honky tonk hoe-down jam. This set ending performance was full of brilliant waves of energy. Just when the audience thought the jam would come to a close, surprise! The melody would morph into yet another colorful direction.moe. Announces Three-Night St. Patrick’s Day Run In New YorkSecond set got underway with a relaxed “Annihilation Blues” that was crammed with heavy bass-slapping bombs. “Captain America” was a delight as well, overloaded with extended jams thrown back and forth to all musicians on stage. Garvey provided tender touches of lightened guitar before sending the tune off into trippy vibrations. Mind-bending organ, mixed with splashes of long-held guitar notes, created an Egyptian-laced sound that circled around the theater before they gently wound into “Recreational Chemistry.” Again, the band took this tune on a kaleidoscopic trip around vibrant tones and notes, with the mallet cat highlighting the song midway. This lengthy jam took its time before heading back to finish the song.There was no stopping the heat of this show as they went into “The Road.” The band was sounding tight and were clearly having a blast on stage. “Brent Black” was filled to the rim with chunks of mind-blowing guitar and drum work, as Loughlin and Amico, once again, showed off their talent on the percussion with solos. Derhak took an unhurried moment to show off the deep tones of his bass guitar before the rest of the band joined back in for a solid jam before finishing the tune.Al Schnier Talks Leaving Floodwood, Playing Jerry’s Guitar And So Much moe.The band took a quick breather before heading into a gently started “Rebubula”, which quickly kicked into high gear. They slid into “Four” mid-jam, followed by the “Rebubula” reprise. It was a jam sandwich crammed with intense energy and tasty nuggets of saucy shredding. Set two came to a close that was hot to the touch.moe. was treating fans to a fantastic treat at The Capitol. The evening closed to a double encore of “Do or Die” and a Jethro Tull cover of “Cross Eyed Mary.” This is a show moe. fans will not soon forget.Listen To The Full Show Audio Below via Taper Jon Merin:Setlist: moe.

With the band’s tour celebrating 25 years, they had special guest Nate Wilson of Ghosts of Jupiter, and founding member of Percy Hill, on keys for the weekend run. Silver jackets appeared to be the theme as a few members wore various shades of shiny for the evening, which added to the fun vibe in the air. The evening started off with an incredible “Okayalright,” which included a steamy guitar jam mid-song before spilling into “Letter Home.” The audience went nuts when this showed up on the set list, belting the words. The theater was dripping with high energy early on in the show, and all signs pointed to this being one hot evening. The intense vibe continued with a seamless flow into “New York City”, an appropriate tune for its location. Set one was on fire with no sign of slowing down. //
