Trey Anastasio Band: January 24, 2013 Capitol Theatre (Port Chester, NY) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

The band Phish will be celebrating its 30th year of existence this year – an impressive feat for any band, but even more so for one as consumed with playing long, varied sets that maintains a pretty intense tour schedule when they’re out.  But as Trey Anastasio reminded us at the beautifully refurbished Capitol Theatre in the Westchester suburbs last week, his Trey Anastasio Band project has had some staying power of its own. This year marks that band’s fifteenth anniversary, and that showed. It might even be fair to say that, with a less rigorous schedule and many fewer dates in each of those years, this band has more room to grow as a unit than the mothership itself. Trey has long since been at a point in his career where he can do what he wants, and TAB gives him even more freedom to be as eccentric and humorous as he wants to be. From the Honey Boo Boo jokes to the inspired cover of Bob Marley’s “Small Axe”, this second night of the Capitol run showed a band and a leader comfortable with where they are and thoroughly enjoying the tunes they had to offer.  The set included some less-played numbers like “Greyhound” and “Words to Wanda”, and of course, some songs from Trey’s new record, Traveler, including our favorite, “Valentine.” Three of us from the nyctaper crew attended the show, and I think it’s fair to say a good time was had by all.

The Capitol Theatre is a welcome new (re-)addition to the NYC-area venue scene. The site of some legendary Grateful Dead shows has been lovingly restored to its former glory, with the added bonus of a friendly, competent and cool staff.  We wish the new venue well and hope to return soon.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41 microphones from the official taper section of the venue, joined by Johnny Fried Chicken Boy and hi and lo.  While the Capitol asks that we keep mic stands fairly low – meaning closer to chatty audience members – we found the sound in the spot to be nearly flawless, and the resulting recording reflects the theater’s fine acoustics and the outstanding effort’s of Trey’s FOH team. Enjoy!

Trey Anastasio Band: February 22, 2011 Terminal 5 – FLAC / MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

March 23, 2011

Despite how “jambands” seem to invoke the ire of quite a few people, it can’t be ignored that they attract a zealous following.  Bolstered by excellent musicianship and great songwriting, Phish has arguably been at the top of this genre for a long time and are able to sell out nearly every arena-sized (and larger) venue they play in.  That’s why it’s nice when the individual members indulge in their side projects, allowing them to kick back and play the smaller places like they did before becoming a multi-million dollar juggernaut.  I hadn’t been to a Phish concert for the better part of two decades when a few friends literally dragged me to see frontman Trey Anastasio last year.  It turned out to be a stellar gig and good enough to make me dip my toes back into the pond, so to speak.  With his return to Terminal 5 this year, there was no way I was going to miss it and it turned out to be money well spent.  Delving into the extensive catalog of material from his main band and solo jaunts, Trey and company split the performance into acoustic and electric sets, playing a lot of favorites and a few inspired, and some surprising, covers.  Judging by the great time the performers and the crowd were having, reinforced by the multiple sing-alongs during the course of the evening, I can understand why so many folks are continually drawn to them.

We recorded this show from the first balcony, nearly dead-center.  A few other people had the same idea and we had a blast turning the area into a taper’s section.  As with Phish, Trey Anastasio’s sound engineers are top-notch.  The house sound that night was superb and our recording reflects that.  Enjoy!
