Phil Lesh Tickets
Phil Lesh TicketsOriginally known as the bass player for legendary jam band The Grateful Dead throughout its 30-year history, Phil Lesh has since established himself as a legendary solo artist and bandleader in his own right. When The Grateful Dead disbanded in 1995, he played with offshoots of the band like The Dead, Further and The Other Ones and formed his own band, Phil Lesh and Friends, continuing in his former band's musical tradition. Phil Lesh and Friends would even play Grateful Dead songs along with their originals. Of those originals that Phil Lesh composed himself include "New Potato Caboose," "Pride of Cucamonga," "Unbroken Chain" and "Box of Rain." As a member of The Grateful Dead, Phil Lesh was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.
At the Terrapin CrossroadsLesh's first instrument back in his Berkeley, California, youth was a trumpet. In fact, when Jerry Garcia recruited him to be the bassist in the new band that would become The Grateful Dead, Phil Lesh had yet to pick up a bass for the first time. Now, Phil Lesh is credited for helping define the new position the electric bass held in the popular music of the 60s and beyond. These days, in addition to touring select venues with his different bands, Phil Lesh runs a music performance venue named Terrapin Crossroads. He also advocates strongly for organ donation after undergoing his own liver transplant.
