Boyd Tinsley, Bill Evans to Guest with Phil and Friends at The Capitol Theatre
Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley and saxophonist Bill Evans will join Phil Lesh and Friends as special guests during their upcoming shows at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY.
Tinsley will perform with the first incarnation of the group April 2-5. That band will feature Lesh, John Kadlecik, Larry Campbell, Teresa Williams, Jeff Chimenti and Joe Russo. Evans will then take part in this year’s second Phil and Friends run at The Cap, which is set for April 9-12. As previously reported, that incarnation of the project will also include Lesh, Kadlecik, Russo, Marco Benevento and Jackie Greene.
Tickets for the upcoming Phil and Friends runs at The Capitol Theatre are currently available, though both Saturday shows have already sold out and only a limited amount of Friday night tickets are still available.
As previously reported, Phil Lesh recently signed a deal with Capitol Theatre proprietor (and Jambands.com/Relix publisher) Peter Shapiro that includes up to 30 shows at the venue throughout the year, as well as multiple shows at various other venues operated by Shapiro, such as Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas and the Lockn’ Festival. Phil Lesh has also scheduled a pair of Friends shows at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) for April 14 and 15.
