On Friday May 23rd, Trey Anastasio Band rolled through Cleveland for the first of two Ohio shows leading up to headlining Summer Camp Music Festival on Sunday. Taking the stage shortly before 8pm, the septet certainly didn’t waste any time, jumping right into the reggae flavored ” The Land of Nod”.
Fresh and tight from the get-go, the band showed absolutely no signs of rust from the three month break. If there’s one thing that’s clear, TAB brings the heat on a nighty basis. Trey certainly wasn’t hesitant in reintroducing the midwestern crowd to the slew of new material debuted back in February. Anastasio also premiered two new originals – “Flying Machine” and “The Song”, while later confirming the band is working on a new album. Master of harnessing energy, Trey and company delivered two high octane sets complied by a mix of new and old school staples. “Magilla”, “Drifting” and “First Tube” provided the closing credits to an incredible night of music on the shores of Lake Erie.
