Phil Lesh & Friends is an American rock band formed and led by Phil Lesh, former bassist of the Grateful Dead.
The Phil & Friends concept takes the music of the Grateful Dead and an ever-increasing number of other influences and touring members to explore and interpret the music in new ways.
All of the incarnations of Phil & Friends have followed a trend of "updating" the Grateful Dead's massive body of work, and all have been extremely adept at the long, exploratory jams that were a trademark of the Dead.
Phil Lesh & Friends has been acclaimed for giving new life to the Grateful Dead's material, bringing in new styles and innovations, while at the same time remaining loyal to the original music and the original fans.
It is this melding of musical influences that has given them extremely wide appeal not only among old Deadheads, but the modern-day fans of other jam bands as well.
Supporting Phil is special guest and Grammy award winning guitarist, songwriter and producer, Eric Krasno, along with the same ultra-talented lineup of musicians who performed during last year’s successful Hawai`i run: Grahame Lesh, Ross James, Alex Koford, & Jason Crosby. It is sure to be an experience not to be missed.
