Phish Performs With Special Guest Bob Weir at Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville

Phish played two sold out shows at the Ascend Amphitheater in downtown Nashville at the open air venue right on the Cumberland river. The day started out perfect, it was an 82 degree sunny day with loads of Phish and Bob Weir (of the Grateful Dead) fans roaming around Nashville. Bob Weir was set to play Wednesday night at The Ryman Theater. We went to a Phish pre-party for the Tuesday show and a trusted source told me that Bobby is playing most of the second set with Phish tonight. The day just got better. We went down to the sold out venue and it was confirmed that Bob was sitting in tonight. Of all the years I have photographed Phish, this is definitely a rarity. Phish is playing incredible and truly seem to be having a blast being on stage together. I have been seeing Phish since 1992 and am a University of Vermont graduate. So needless to say, I have been seeing this band for a long time and through many stages of the band's history. This year has been a great year to be a Phish fan.

It was quite a week to be in Nashville. We got to see Bob Weir at the Ryman, two superb Phish shows, photographed Adele, and went to a private show at Jack White's Third Man Records. The band's official setlist is as follows: Please note that we were not in the pit with our pro cameras during the second set so Bob Weir shots are just point and shoot shots.
This show featured the Phish debut of Samson and Delilah and Playing in the Band. West L.A. Fadeaway was last played October 6, 2000 (383 shows). Samson and Delilah through Playing in the Band featured Bob Weir on guitar. Weir also sang vocals on Samson and Delilah, Miss You, and West L.A. Fadeaway. The soundcheck's Blues Jam featured a verse of Funky Bitch from Trey and Walking Blues featured Weir on vocals.

KAABOO | Del Mar Fairgrounds | Del Mar, CA | September 16 – 18, 2016

KAABOO | Del Mar Fairgrounds | Del Mar, CA | September 16 – 18, 2016
It was a beautiful Southern California weekend as the weather was perfect for an all outdoor festival. It was the 2nd annual KAABOO and my second time in attendance for this three-day event. There were definitely more options this year than last as KAABOO advertised itself as a high end all sensory experience including good food and spirits, spa like indulgences, music, comedy and art. They even had a swimming pool…..

Americana week in Nashville showcases so many different artists that it is exceedingly hard to pick the “best”. This year even more so. From Dwight Yoakam to Bob Weir, or Margo Price, etc., how can one really choose? Well, the decision was made to go by the “bootie” barometer, that is, which artist made you want to get up and dance, ie. “shake your bootie”. Using that criteria the winner is unmistakably the legendary Bobby Rush.
