Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band
Formed from weekly shows at Phil Lesh's Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA, the Terrapin Family Band has become the venue's official house band. Terrapin Crossroads' constant free bar shows, often featuring bandleader Phil, have created an opportunity for the young musicians of Terrapin Crossroads to perform together and with a diverse cast of visiting musicians. Through playing in this setting, and with ongoing mentoring from Phil - Brian Lesh, Grahame Lesh, Ross James, and Alex Koford have grown into a richly nuanced and fun band, weaving the classics with obscure covers and fresh original music to create a unique musical tapestry.
When not on the road with Phil, you can find the Terrapin Family Band at the Terrapin Crossroads bar every Wednesday night at ~8:30pm and every Sunday afternoon at 12:30pm (for brunch).
