great show. the ace of cups were great. zero was the highlight. bobby vega was having a great time. they love each other w/ bob weir and the brotherhood was one of the finer moments of the night. mickey hart and friends singing happy birthday to wavy (wavus gravus) ala babatunde during the parade and balloon drop was amazing. how many drummers on one stage w/ red clown noses - this could be a record.

Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Steve Kimock, Dave Schools, Tipper Gore and Others Celebrate Wavy Gravy’s 75th Birthday

Wavy Gravy celebrated his 75th birthday Saturday night with an all star concert at Richmond, CA’s the Craneway Pavilion. Like all of his recent birthday celebrations, the night benefited the SEVA foundation, an organization that works to build sustainable programs in underserved communities around the globe. Music stretched from 7 PM until nearly 3 AM and featured performances by Bob Weir & Friends, Mickey Hart, Zero, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Hot Buttered Rum, Ace of Cups and The Clown Conspiracy, among others.

The evening’s collaborations started early, including an appearance by singer Nicki Bluhm during Hot Buttered Rum’s set on “Fruit of the Vine” and “Blackberry Pie.” Former Hot Buttered Rum drummer Matt Butler also played washboard on a cover of “Bertha.” Later in the night, Bob Weir emerged during Chris Robinson Brotherhood’s set for “They Love Each Other.” Weir also joined Robinson for the same song in Petaluma, CA last month.

Mickey Hart performed with a special band featured guitarist Steve Kimock, ALO drummer Dave Brogan and Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools, the latter of whom now lives in California. His percussion-heavy set came to a close with many of the evening’s entertainers onstage for a birthday parade based around “Baba Jingo.” The jam included Tipper Gore on percussion and both Weir and RatDog guitarist Mark Karan on guitar. Zero’s lineup was also something of a super group featuring Steve Kimock, Bobby Vega, Greg Anton, Pete Sears and Berry Sless.

For his show-closing performance, Weir put together a new band drawn from a familiar pool of Dead-associated acts. His core ensemble included Kimock, Karan, Phil Lesh & Friends drummer John Molo, Furthur/RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and RatDog bassist Robin Sylvester. The group ran through Dead classics and Dead-associated covers like “Playing in the Band,” “New Speedway Boogie,” “Tennessee Jed,” “Sugaree,” “Brown-Eyed Women,” “That’s It for the Other One” and “Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad” with the help of numerous guests. Chris Robinson emerged early in the set for “New Speedway Boogie” and “Sugaree” while Bluhm returned with pedal steel guitarist Barry Sless for both “Sugaree” and “Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad.” During “The Other One,” Schools took over on bass and Henry Kaiser sat in on guitar. At the end of the set, Country Joe & the Fish co-founder Barry Melton and keyboardist Pete Sears also took the stage for the set-closing sing-along “Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad.”

The show wrapped-up an extremely busy seven day stretch for Weir that included a performance with the Marin Symphony and a live broadcast from TRI studios. Wavy Gravy will host an East Coast birthday benefit at New York’s Beacon Theater on May 27

Like the idea of Tipper Gore jamming.

If it weren't for one motherfucking old white man's vote on the Supreme Court, she would have been our first lady.....and the world would definitely have been different --- maybe not better (although I think it would be) but def dif..

I try to avoid politics here, sorry.

I had a great time at Craneway saturday, but I must say it depresses me a little that Mickey and Bobby didn't play together much at all ( I didn't know they had at all untill the setlist was posted there were so many people onstage at that brief moment). What gives? Would also like to say that I really hope Bobby does a tour (or at least some bay area shows) with Steve Kimock on guitar! I loves me some Kimock!!!
