Phil Lesh & Terrapin Family Band @ Infinity Yacht – June 7

As my car hydroplaned down the West Side Highway during a torrential downpour this past Friday night towards Pier 40, where a yacht hosting a performance from Grateful Dead / Furthur bassist Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band would depart from, it wasn’t a stretch to think the massive amounts of rain might deter some folks from attending. Despite the weather, the boat seemed full as Hornblower Infinity Yacht crew members helped make sure everyone got onboard safely.

A near-capacity crowd saw the fourth and final night of the intimate June New York City run for Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band. The atmosphere on the vessel was celebratory as most seemed happy to be a part of this unique event. While NYC concert boat cruises are nothing new, Friday night’s voyage seemed to be in a different category. Fans gathered drinks, ordered food and found a spot on the luxurious boat before this ship of fans left port.
