Phil Lesh Brings the Terrapin Family Band to Brooklyn

Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band will play two nights in February at the Brooklyn Bowl in New York City.

Former Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh is bringing his Terrapin Family Band to the East Coast for two nights at New York City’s Brooklyn Bowl. The shows take place Sunday and Monday, Feb. 12 and 13.

The Terrapin Family Band is the house band from Terrapin Crossroads, Lesh’s bar, restaurant, and music venue in San Raphael, California. The band, hand-picked by Lesh, is made up of young musicians who keep the music and spirit of the Grateful Dead alive by playing classic Dead songs, obscure covers and even some original music, while being mentored by Lesh, himself. They have played with a diverse group of visiting musicians, challenging the members while developing their unique sound.

The shows at the Brooklyn Bowl start at 8 p.m. with doors opening at 6 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 16 at 10 a.m. and cost $65 in advance or $70 at the door. These are 21 and over shows.
