    Spent Friday and Saturday nights happily grooving to Trey Anastasio Band at the fantastic Fox Theater in Oakland!

    TAB was crushing jams laced with tropical Samba, Rhumba, Reggae, Ska, Funk, Blues, Soul, Soca, Jazz and Rock rhythms - this is not Phish and there's no feeling like you are on the outside of some innie inside joke - this is pure jammy goodness filled with tight rhythms (featuring Russ Lawton on drums, Cyro Baptista rattling and shaking a world of percussion toys, Tony Markellis with a stand-mounted P Bass laying down the law of the goove, Ray Paczakowski on B3, Rhodes and other keys and the fantastic singing horns of Natalie, "Chainsaw," Cressman, (Trombone) Jen Hartswick (Trumpet) and James Casey (Tenor and Bari Sax.) Trey of course melted faces - but I was thunderstruck by the steadiness of Tony on bass. He was like a rock of rhythm...

    Tony Markellis is a freight train...I actually just looked for some of his bass lines. He is so simply and understated but the bass lines are JUST RIGHT and he is a freight train...just grooves down the track. So good....
