Photo Gallery: Skerik, Nels Cline, Billy Martin, MonoNeon at Sony Hall

For the past four years Phish has ended the year with a run of shows at the historic Madison Square Garden, and from these shows an impressive lineup of late night collaborations has kept the masses entertained into the early hours of the next day. On December 29, saxophonic pioneer Skerik was joined by the talented Billy Martin of Medeski Martin Wood, Ghost Note’s MonoNeon and Wilco’s Nels Cline at the brand new Times Square music venue Sony Hall.

A two hour-plus set of improv showcased these talented musicians and their unique styles. Nels Cline’s Guitar worked beautifully with the sounds of Skerik’s Electronic Sax, and bassist MonoNeon settled in nicely with the style of the great Billy Martin.
