Legendary Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh and The Terrapin Family Band are bringing their signature sounds to the BB&T Pavilion!
Phil Lesh was born in Berkeley (California) in 1940 and is a singer, songwriter, and bassist, best known as a founding member of legendary rock band, the Grateful Dead. Formed in Palo Alto in 1965, the band made a name for itself with a unique and eclectic style that fused elements of country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, rock, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, and space rock. After the Grateful Dead split up, Phil kept its legacy alive by forming Phil Lesh and Friends; a band that takes the music of the Grateful Dead and explores and interprets it in new ways. In 2012, he founded a music venue in San Rafael (California) and named it Terrapin Crossroads. He said in a press statement, "We're taking the first steps to make a long time dream - a permanent musical home - come true. We are purchasing a building in Marin, and plan on remodeling it to feel like an old bar... Our goal is to create a vibrant community gathering place: beautiful, comfortable, welcoming - for members of the community to commingle and enjoy good music." The Terrapin Family Band is the venue's official house band and it consists of Grahame Lesh, Alex Koford, Ross James, and Jason Crosby.
