Classic TAB to Return in August

Phish frontman Trey Anastasio will be playing the All Points West Fest at Liberty State Park outside NYC on Sunday, August 10th with the "classic" incarnation of the Trey Anastasio Band (aka TAB). Joining Trey will be Strangefolk drummer Russ Lawton, Unknown Blues Band bassist Tony Markellis, and Viperhouse keyboardist Ray Paczkowski. Trey, Russ and Tony first played together as part of the five piece Vermont supergroup Eight Foot Fluorescent Tubes on April 17, 1998. As the band that ripped monster versions of Sand and First Tube, I loved seeing these guys live over the years. Trey Band was always at their most rockin' stripped down as a trio without the horns. Ray will be a nice compliment and Trey certainly seems to enjoy playing with the guy.

Trey seems to be coming back together like that McFly family photograph in Back To the Future. This should be fun!

My favorite description of Coventry comes from my buddy DaveO was said Trey's playing that fateful weekend reminded him of Marty McFly playing Johnny B. Goode while fading away.
