Terrapin Crossroads Presents has announced that Phil Lesh & Friends will headline their third ‘Sunday Daydream’ Festival at McNears Beach Park in San Rafael, CA, on July 21, 2024. The band, and all musical acts at Sunday Daydream Vol. 3, will celebrate the 50 year anniversary of ‘Grateful Dead at the Hollywood Bowl on 7/21/74’, an iconic show from the band at the height of their musical prowess and innovation.

Under the enchanting lights of the Capitol Theatre, Phil Lesh & Friends embarked on a journey that redefined the very essence of a live music experience. This wasn't merely a concert; it was a bridge between epochs, a melding of the Grateful Dead's storied past with glimpses of a boundless future. The lineup, starring Phil Lesh, Grahame Lesh, Amy Helm, Jason Crosby, Daniel Donato, and John Molo, didn't just perform—they created an aura of enchantment that enveloped everyone present.

In a theater not so far away, where the walls hum with the echoes of a thousand nights, a gathering of cosmic proportions unfolded beneath the watchful gaze of the ever-spinning disco ball. The Capitol Theatre, a vessel adrift in the sea of time, Port Chester, its current harbor, bore witness to the convergence of spirits old and new, as the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Grateful, under the baton of one Phil Lesh, celebrated the maestro's 84th passage around the sun.

In the swirling mists of the jam rock universe, there's a beacon shining bright, pulsating with the deep, resonant vibes of Phil Lesh’s bass. As we orbit around the sun to mark his 84th trip this March 15th, 2024, we embark on a magic bus ride, not just through the spaces between notes, but through the heartbeats of a legacy that's more alive than ever, without ever saying it's a Kesey trip—but feeling it in every word.

On November 10th, 1999, I attended my first ever Phil Lesh & Friends show at the New Haven Coliseum. The venue, affectionately known as 'the old barn,' was just off I-95 in lovely downtown New Haven, Connecticut. It also hosted my second Grateful Dead concert back in May 1978. The New Haven Coliseum did not age well and it was gone shortly after that show in 1999. A young lad, the 20-year-old Derek Trucks, was called in as an emergency fill-in guitarist, hired on the fly.

Please don’t murder me if you think this review of the acclaimed jam-fusion band Jazz Is Dead runs hard to the gushy side. But even after all these years – more than 50 years of concert-going – I’m still a pretty impressionable guy (It’s true. . .) and it was only my first time seeing them.  So there was a lot to take in.
