Grateful Phish Brothers Play Pelosi Party

by | Jan 6, 2007

For decades members of Grateful Dead claimed they were not political. Yet, that was never actually the case. Anyone recall the 1988 Rainforest Benefit in Madison Square Garden? Tickets were $50, more than I’d ever paid for a concert at that point in time. But I digress…

Greatful Dead News, the blog from SLC Library Boy, is reporting on a new high for the band–a $1000 ticket. Apparently, Bobby, Mickey, Billy, plus Bruce Hornsby, Warren Haynes and Mike Gordon formed something called “Your House Band” and played Speaker Pelosi’s party at National Building Museum on Jan. 4. They were also joined onstage by Wyclef Jean and Carole King. Tonny Bennett and his four-piece band had their own two-song performance.
