While most are probably familiar with The Terrapin Family Band as the touring jam outfit lead by legendary bassist Phil Lesh, these two shows without the Grateful Dead alum will be a unique east coast showing for the TFB core members that originally cut their teeth and performed together numerous times as the house band at the famous Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA.

As for dates featuring the full lineup, next month the whole of Terrapin Family Band are scheduled to perform two nights at Chicago’s Thalia Hall, on Thursday, March 7 and Friday, March 8. In April, TFB will perform two nights at The Joy Theatre in New Orleans as part of the 2019 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Beyond that, the band is scheduled to play Red Rocks in May as well as headline the nineteenth annual Floydfest in June.
