Jackie Greene Birthday Celebration reunited Phil and Bobby. Setlist, Review, Videos
Jackie Greene's Friends came around for his birthday show. Including Phil and Bobby sharing the same stage for only the second time since Fare Thee Phil. Setlist, Videos and 411
Jackie Greene played The Warfield last night for the first time as it hosted his hometown birthday show. It has become tradition over the last few years. He always celebrates his birthday with a bunch of talented friends. This year he gave all of us a present when Bobby and Phil shared the stage for only the second time since Fare Thee Phil. Everyone that is familiar with our musical sandbox knows that we love The Kid. He turned 36 and is already a savant. The last few years he has been focusing on his talented career with his band and they never have sounded better. Its tough to turn down the big money, but I have been thrilled he stopped playing hired gun for a bit. Last night besides Bobby Weir and Phil Lesh, Jackie was joined by Jason Crosby, Mark Karan, Ross James and the angelic voice of Nicki Bluhm. His brother Alex Nelson played keys on Scarlett>Fire and quickly it became obvious why he was never invited before tonight. I am only half kidding, he did not make a fool of himself but I don't see the brothers making music together except on holidays.
It was a three magestic sets with my only complaint being the lack of Jackie originals. He played a few, but instead he performed more covers including a tasty "Medicated Goo" that would make any Traffic fan smile. The three sets including an acoustic set and ended with a inspired Grateful Dead set.
