The newest edition of Trey Anastasio’s ever-changing solo band made its debut tonight as TAB Fall Tour 2012 got underway at The Fillmore in Detroit. As hinted at yesterday, Big Red did unveil a new guitar, using a Fender Jaguar at points during the show. Trey’s latest solo album, Traveler, came out just two days ago and unsurprisingly the setlist was filled with tunes from the LP including the debuts of Corona, Scabbard, Architect and Traveler. Multi-instrumentalist James Casey of Lettuce made his first appearance with the band and the evening also saw the return of percussionist Cyro Baptista.
