LOCKN’ Music Festival wrapped up on Sunday night, marking the end of four stellar nights of music with some of the biggest names in the scene. One of the most highly anticipated sets of the weekend was Phil Lesh and Bob Weir’s joint Friday night set, where they recreated the Grateful Dead’s seminal 1977 album Terrapin Station with the help of The Terrapin Family Band. In many ways, the festival functioned as a big family reunion for the jam community at large, with many folks happy to see Weir and Lesh in the saddle together once again. Following their Friday performance together, the two original Grateful Dead musicians teamed up once again for a daytime set dubbed “A Very Special Hour With Phil Lesh & Bob Weir” in the Super VIP tent at LOCKN’.Phil.moe. Welcomes Bob Weir, Grahame Lesh, Members Of The Revivalists, More At LOCKN’ [Audio]Bob Weir Joins Joe Russo’s Almost Dead For Five Songs At LOCKN’ [Videos]For this intimate VIP set, the guitarist and bassist put on a stripped-down performance for those lucky enough to make it in the door. During their show, the two moved through their own renditions of Grateful Dead classics and at points were joined by Joe Russo’s Almost Dead drummer and frontman Joe Russo, in addition to Phil’s son Grahame Lesh and his Midnight North bandmate Elliot Peck. While Bobby and Phil started their special performance off with two songs performed by just them—”Me & My Uncle” and “Looks Like Rain”—on the third song, “Deep Elem Blues”, Russo came out to join them and stayed on for the rest of the set. Russo’s collaboration came after his collaboration the previous night with Bob Weir, when the guitarist joined Joe Russo’s Almost Dead for five songs during their performance.Watch DJ Logic And Bob Weir Jam Together At LOCKN’After “Loose Lucy,” Phil’s son, Grahame joined in on the fun, performing “Lazy River Road” with the trio before departing for “West L.A. Fadeaway.” The younger Lesh again returned for “Bird Song” before the final song on their show, “Mountains Of The Moon,” when the four on stage welcomed guitarist and keyboardist for Midnight North, Elliott Peck, to close out the performance.

Following a five night Halloween run on the east coast, Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh will return to San Rafael, California for a Thanksgiving celebration at his own Terrapin Crossroads. Dubbed Phriendsgiving: A Musical Celebration, the November 12 event will see Phil Lesh team with guitarist Tom Hamilton (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, American Babies), guitarist Ross James (Terrapin Family Band), pianist Holly Bowling, and drummer Alex Koford (Terrapin Crossroads Family Band).Ticketing information for Phriendsgiving: A Musical Celebration can be found here.
Last night brought Brendan Bayliss and Jake Cinninger of Umphrey’s McGee to Chicago’s Park West for a night dubbed “Brendan and Jake’s 15th Annual Holiday Show.” The sold-out show brings both guitarists together for an intimate, stripped down evening that benefits a local Chicago charitable organization. The show had it all for which the annual tradition has become well known-UM classics, covers, varied instruments, some strong references to Star Wars, and brief cameos from the Umph mothers. It was a great way to help raise money for a good cause.All proceeds went to the People’s Music School of Chicago, the only non-profit and tuition free music academy in the country. One teenage student relayed a heart-tugging story of how her parents camped out on the sidewalk for three days and nights just to wait in line to have a chance to enroll in the program. Brendan and Jake did their part to help young aspiring musicians such as her. But before they took to the stage, Umphrey’s keyboardist Joel Cummins did a solo set. He made sure to squeeze in as much as possible during his set. His version of Derek and the Dominos’ “Layla” was phenomenal. He played a very appropriate “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies” from The Nutcracker, only to mention his extreme disdain for being taken to the play by his parents year after year as a child. He also played “Final Word” and it was unique hearing his vocals on the track as opposed to Bayliss. One of the more comical moments of his set when he called his mom on stage, and he made sure to have the whole crowd give her a salutation.After his set, Brendan and Jake quickly took the stage. They began with a great version of “Divisions,” which despite what many seasoned Umphreaks in the front claimed, had a “Yoga Pants” sandwiched inside and not “In the Kitchen.” Other acoustic staples followed, like “Nemo,” “Sweetness,” and “Bad Poker.” Besides the music, their banter and quirkiness entertained the crowd. At one point they teased “The Imperial March” and threated to give spoilers on the new Star Wars Movie The Last Jedi, which the crowd responded with a big, “NOOO!!!” The nerds on stage didn’t care though, as earlier they had been presented with Christmas gifts that were none other than more Star Wars toys to put on their amplifiers.Throughout the set, guests frequented the stage as diligently as Jake’s fingers moved along the frets. Pedal steel guitarist Mike Rackey joined for a couple songs, as well as trumpet master Jennifer Hartswick. Her vocals on “Bullhead City” were nailed and the song sounded like the crisp version from the studio album. Of course Joel added his touch on the piano, and percussionists Andy Farag and Kris Myers laid down the beat for many songs, including the former spending quite a long time behind the drumkit. In fact, the only Umphrey’s member who didn’t play was Ryan Stasik. He was sorely missed!Besides the guests rotating in and out, the instruments which the musicians used also didn’t stay too long in their hands before being replaced. Bayliss rocked the mandolin and the bass, including playing the latter on a great rendition of the Grateful Dead’s “They Love Each Other.” It was one of the highlights of the night. The other superlative moment of the show was when Bayliss got on the piano and Jake played the drums. Despite the physical distance between the two- they couldn’t have been any further from each other on the stage- their chemistry was out of this world on “Push and Pull” and Supertramp’s “Take the Long Way Home.” Jake played the drums with a purpose, and Bayliss’ piano solo on the Supertramp song was…. interesting. With all the talented guests that took to the stage over the course of the night, it was a ton of fun to see just those two on stage together for that segment.The annual event was a blast, with those who have been to all of them to those attending for the first time leaving very satisfied. The intimacy in the small venue is something that can’t be found at Umphrey’s shows and seeing these two talented guitarists on stage was a treat. Ultimately, they did a great job of raising a lot of money for a very worthy cause.___________________________________________________________SETLIST: Brendan & Jake Holiday Special | Park West | Chicago, IL | 12/15/17Divisions -> Yoga Pants -> Divisions, Nemo -> Sweetness-> Nemo, Bad Poker, You and You Alone, Kimble, Gone For Good, Susannah, They Love Each Other, Push & Pull, Take the Long Way Home, Angel, Bullhead City, Let Me Roll ItE: Running on Empty[Thanks to Daniel Ojeda for the review and photo gallery] Load remaining images

Vulfpeck only has a handful of dates scheduled for 2018, and they completed three of them in the last five days. Following their performance at SweetWater 420 Fest in Atlanta, the funk quartet headed straight to New Orleans for two nights at the legendary Tipitina’s.The band played at Tipitina’s in 2016 when they opened up for Lettuce, welcoming huge collaborations throughout the night. The favor was returned last night, when Lettuce’s The Shady Horns–trumpeter Eric “Benny” Bloom and saxophonist Ryan Zoidis–sat in throughout the Wednesday night performance.The setlist followed standard procedure, welcoming all the hits and collaborations with frequenters Cory Wong, Joey Dosik, and Antwaun Stanley. In addition to The Shady Horns, Vulfpeck welcomed trombonist Melissa Gardiner.Thanks to YouTube user Wes Yarber, you can watch Vulfpeck’s entire guest-filled Tipitina’s performance below:[Video: Wes Yarber]Next up, Vulfpeck heads to Morrison, CO for their first-ever headlining performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, where they will be joined by Kamasi Washington and KNOWER.

The evening will find Analog Son joined by String Cheese Incident’s Jason Hann in addition to performances by Matador! Soul Sounds, Quantic, Congo Sanchez, and The Color Red All-Stars featuring members of Sunsquabi, Thievery Corporation, and more.VIP packages for the launch party are available now, with VIPs receiving a five-piece vinyl collection featuring Color Red artists including Analog Son, Matador! Soul Sounds, WDR (a new trio featuring Robert Walter, Eddie Roberts, and Adam Deitch), and more. For more information about the show or to purchase tickets, head here. Analog Son is a fan-favorite funk act out of Colorado led by guitarist Jordan Linit and bassist Josh Fairman. On September 28th, the high-energy eight-piece will release their fourth full-length studio album, Funky Mother, on Color Red, the new label and content platform founded by The New Mastersounds’ Eddie Roberts. Also produced by Roberts, Funky Mother was recorded and engineered at Scanhope Sound, a Denver-area studio owned by Analog Son bassist and co-leader Josh Fairman.Analog Son has always been a progressive, forward-thinking funk act, offering up dynamic compositions, captivating live shows, and a tight, dialed-in sound. In the past, the band has used a Steely Dan-esque approach to recording albums, with Linit and Fairman calling on a rotating cast of musicians to join them in the studio. Past collaborators range from Ivan Neville to String Cheese Incident’s Jason Hann.However, for Funky Mother, Analog Son switched up their approach, solidifying a recording lineup featuring Devon Parker and Ashley Niven (vocals), Eric Luba (keyboards), George Horn (drums), Will Trask (percussion), Mike Chiesa (tenor saxophone), and Gabe Mervine (trumpet). Despite this, Analog Son’s new album still highlights a number of special guest artists, with members of Thievery Corporation, Kneebody, The Motet, and Michal Menert & The Pretty Fantastics all represented.As Jordan Linit explained in a statement, “Utilizing our core group of musicians in the studio, we’ve been able to incorporate live intricacies into the composition and showcase everyone’s character who’s in the core band. Their musical personalities are starting to come through in the studio and reflect what people have come to expect in the live show.”Added Josh Fairman, “This record has a more refined sound. We’ve been playing together for long enough now where we’ve developed more of a unique sound—as opposed to just being funky, it actually sounds like our band.”Today, Live For Live Music is proud to premiere the second single off Analog Son’s forthcoming new album, a track titled “CTI”. “CTI” is a feast for the ears for music lovers. The song showcases Analog Son’s easy, in-the-pocket grooves and rich, complex melodies, and features propulsive horn lines and a standout solo crafted by Gabe Mervine, former trumpeter for The Motet. The song pays tribute to the legendary jazz label by the same name, CTI Records, whose roster included a number of jazz greats who blurred the lines between traditional jazz and other popular music, such as George Benson, Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine, Ron Carter, and others. Gaining its name after producer Eddie Roberts noted that the tune had “a kind of CTI vibe,” the song shows Analog Son in peak form.Noted Josh Fairman,“CTI” was really fun track. We wrote it in the studio and laid it down the whole time thinking, “this sounds classic.” At some point, Eddie is like, “This sounds like CTI” and the name stuck. It’s an honor for us to pay this kind of homage, as the artists on the CTI label were some of the best musicians around. They helped create the road Analog Son travels every time we get to together and play. This track is a reflection of their influence on us directly and indirectly.You can take a listen to the Live For Live Music premiere of Analog Son’s “CTI” for yourself below. If you like what you hear, make sure to snag a copy of the band’s new album, Funky Mother, when it’s released on September 28th—you can pre-order the album on vinyl or digitally here, with fans who pre-order instantly receiving two tracks.
Load remaining images Set on the third floor of Albuquerque’s Convention Center exists an unassuming site of great delights. From the outside, devoid of marquee or even a sign, the Kiva Auditorium would be missed by most, sans for the security checkpoints and ancillary bar, but after passing through the pat-down, fans are greeted with wall-to-wall carpeting, padded, comfortable chairs, and aisles wide enough to accommodate four shoulder-to-shoulder. At a capacity of 2300, this intimate space has been the site of revelry for many artists for more than three decades. Saturday night, this venue once again played host to greatness, welcoming Bob Weir and Wolf Bros on their inaugural two-month tour.Wasting no time, Bob Weir and The Brothers Lobo got the evening started with a slow-paced version of “Jack Straw”, which contained the first location reference of the set. It was clear from the resounding applause at its start, and the uninhibited audience sing-along, that the faithful were in attendance and they were ready for Weir’s latest incarnation. The band continued with the classic Weir cover of “Walkin’ Blues”. This selection kept the audience engaged in familiarity, as Weir showcased his slide work, receiving noticeable acceptance. Pulling from his latest catalog, Weir brought out “Gonesville” in the third slot, which surprisingly saw very little change in audience contribution from the classic openers, as many in attendance seemed to be well versed in the lyrics and supported Bobby through the stanzas.The second spatial reference of the night came in the form of “El Paso”, as Bobby strapped on the acoustic, before taking the room on a romp through the Southwest. “Corrina” was warmly welcomed to the setlist, as the crowd lit up with its opening percussive roles from skin master Jay Lane. This version came in at over 8-minutes and got the place moving with the first improvisational exploration of the night. Over the summer when Dead & Company made a stop in Albuquerque, a huge dust storm settled in over the Isleta Amphitheater, delaying the show. As many stood in line for that event, a handful of songs were in speculation to reflect the weather, and one in particular which was not played, finally found its way into the setlist last night. “Black-Throated Wind” blew its way through the room and was warmly welcomed with noticeable excitement, as the front row lit up with smiles and bouncing bodies.Before proceeding, Bobby started with a story, narrating a day when he went for a run, ended up on top of a mountain, and turned, finally noticing the colossal storm that had been trailing him to the apex. As the weather began to distress the athletic bard, instead of panic, he found inspiration, and the songs that were born out of the day, became the closer of the set. The standard pairing of “Lost Sailor” into “Saint of Circumstance” once again proved that Bobby still has the vocal chops to bring the house down, with a resounding climax that finished these tunes. Laying out the final crescendo, smiles all around, Bobby informed the audience, “We’ll be back in just a little bit.”As the lights came up, conversations between friends and strangers were being had across the room, and every face was lit with a grin. Patrons were given close to a half-hour to recharge for the second set. Most were in their seats not wanting to miss a note when the lights finally dropped, and the trio returned to the stage. Bobby opened the second set with another of one of his cowboy campfire songs, kicking off the second set with “Only A River”, as he strummed the acoustic strings along with his 1000 backupk-up singers. Enjoying the fire light of the intimate surroundings, Weir continued on in that old familiar way and delivered on Merle Haggard’s “Mama Tried”. At the double acoustic take, Weir stepped to the mic and stated that it really wouldn’t be a great show unless the band tried something live for the first time, and proceeded to deliver on a ten-minute “Eyes of The World”. The lilting sonic space that the band produced resulted in many closed eyes, as the tiny room danced. The softness of the piece was well executed without flaw, sans Weir’s singular lyrical debacle, producing laughter from both sides of the stage. The tail end built upward into a calypso-styled theme, which presented with strong work by Lane, as well as heavy lifting by Don Was on the upright bass. The theme was built off of a progressive rift, as the rhythm section delivered the thunderous climatic end, and sat there smiling at each other and the audience. Weir started the “Eyes” riff up again, unaccompanied for a few measures, before Lane and Was joined back in, looking sort of puzzled as to where the band was going.Keeping the faith in the unknown, the riff finally morphed into “Throwing Stones”, with fevered excitement from the crowd. With the political climate and the voting season upon us, Weir took to opportunity to express his explicative feelings about our modern government, the love of money, and how political office can be bought. New Mexico is a fairly liberal state, and with the strong lyrics and Weir’s charge, it was no wonder that this tune brought the greatest reaction of the night. As the tune slowly wound down, without even a hint or a tease, the triad dropped into “The Music Never Stopped”. This trio continued to deliver on the brilliance of their second set, eventually seguing into “Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad”, the appropriate parting song.With a short walk off stage, the band came returned and delivered a great closer for what had been an all-night-long sing-along. Weir strapped on the acoustic one last time for a great rendition of “Ripple”. Of course, everyone thought that was the end, but these merry pranksters had one more trick up their sleeves, as they delivered the Grateful Dead anthem “Touch of Grey”, to send the heads off into the night with a moment of mental and emotional brilliance, as we’re all reminded that we are more alike and together than not.
