Over the last two nights, March 17-18, Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh put together some serious star power for a run of shows at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Lesh celebrated his 76th birthday on March 15th, bringing along Warren Haynes, Rob Barraco, John Molo and Lettuce/Soulive guitarist, Eric Krasno. Krasno held his own as the newcomer to the group (though he has played as a “Friend” before), though fans were quite excited as Jimmy Herring returned to the lineup for the two-night stand. Herring, Haynes, Barraco and Molo are “The Q,” one of Lesh’s longest-standing lineups in the days before Furthur.For those who attended, “The Q” certainly felt reminiscent of old times. Thankfully, photographer Bill Kelly was on the scene to capture some of the moments of this run.
