Phil Lesh’s years in the making music venue, Terrapin Crossroads, opened last night in San Rafael, California, where the Grateful Dead / Furthur bassist greeted those who attended the “casual opening” with handshakes and smiles. Many of Lesh’s musical friends came out to perform in front the approximately 200 attendees including Jaz Sawyer, Nicki and Tim Bluhm, Jeff Chimenti and Jackie Greene as well as Phil’s son Grahame.

The makeshift band tore through covers and originals from the Grateful Dead repertoire as well as a few tunes from Tim and Nicki’s catalog. Thanks to DrStuartLevine1 we can check out a video of The Leshes rocking out Bertha along with Jackie Greene, Jaz Sawyer and Jeff Chimenti from opening night…
Many of the same participants are expected back at Terrapin Crossroads tonight.
