Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band
Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band
Phil Lesh is in his 16th year of playing with a rotating mix of Friends, both old and new. Phil began playing under the moniker Phil Lesh and Friends in 1998, after he’d returned to performing following the death of his friend and bandmate Jerry Garcia in 1995. With a varied mixture of some of the best performing musicians in the live music universe, Phil has kept his musical journey fresh by constantly and consistently putting together bands featuring dynamic, exciting musicians and singers working together toward keeping the music of the Grateful Dead moving forward into the future.

Formed from weekly shows at Phil's Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA, the Terrapin Family Band has become the venue's official house band. Terrapin Crossroads' constant free bar shows, often featuring bandleader Phil, have created an opportunity for the young musicians of Terrapin Crossroads to perform together and with a diverse cast of visiting musicians. Through playing in this setting, and with ongoing mentoring from Phil, the Terrapin Family Band has grown into a richly nuanced and fun band, weaving the classics with obscure covers and fresh original music to create a unique musical tapestry.
