Throwback Concert: Phil Lesh & Friends at XFINITY Center 2006

We’re coming up on the 25th anniversary of the passing of the great Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. Jerry sadly passed away on August 9, 1995, a day many us still remember.

Though the Grateful Dead ended with Jerry’s passing, the surviving members of the band would go on to perform on their own or in some cases with their fellow Dead bandmates.

When Phil Lesh toured on his own, he brought special guests with him that he called his “Friends.” Phil would make frequent stops to our area, most notably at The Gathering of the Vibes Music Festival in Bridgeport or at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester.

Today we look back at Phil’s concert in Massachusetts in 2006.
