Trey Anastasio & Dave Matthews Perform Coran Capshaw Gala [Videos]

first_imgLast night, City of Hope, a charity benefiting cancer research, held its 2017 Spirit Of Life Gala, called “Music, Hope & Healing” at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. At the event, Coran Capshaw, founder of Red Light Management and all around music business impresario, was honored with the Spirit Of Life award for his contributions to the charity. Amongst the many huge contributions that Capshaw has had to the music business is his longtime role as manager to Dave Matthews Band, whom he discovered in Virginia back in the early 90s and helped establish as a touring powerhouse. When Phish reunited in 2009, Trey Anastasio brought in his old friend Coran to be their new manager, and he has helped guide them back to prominence as one of the best and most unique touring acts in the world. As such, at last night’s event, both Trey Anastasio of Phish and Dave Matthews performed short acoustic sets at the City of Hope gala, before Preservation Hall Jazz Band finished the evening with a full set of music.Anastasio was up first, and he delivered newer material from the Phish catalog. “More” and “Miss You” from Big Boat were both performed, with the latter following a story about the City of Hope foundation’s focus on neuroendocrine cancer, which took the lives of both Trey’s sister, Kristy Anastasio Manning, and Phish and Dave Matthews Band’s longtime agent, Chip Hooper. “Miss You” was written for Kristy, and Anastasio dedicated the song to Hooper and his family. To close his mini-set, Anastasio performed a new song that was debuted in Las Vegas, dubbed “Soul Planet”.Trey Anastasio Band Keeps It Rolling In Santa Ana, Debuts Bob Marley Cover [Photos/Videos]Matthews, who is also Capshaw’s best friend, followed Anastasio, and he performed several of Dave Matthews Band’s biggest hit songs. He played “Bartender”, “Grey Street”, and “Don’t Drink The Water”. Before “Bartender”, Matthews joked that Capshaw had requested that song be played, but he couldn’t understand why because it wasn’t a radio hit. It was that kind of night.After both Anastasio and Matthews were finished with their small sets, Preservation Hall Jazz Band took the stage and wowed the crowed with their authentic New Orleans sound and passionate performing style. All around, it was a night filled with amazing music while helping to raise money for an excellent cause.Thanks to our good friend, Instagram hero @ragingruth, you can watch a few videos of Anastasio, Matthews, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Below you can find short videos of “Miss You” and Anastasio’s brand new song, as well as “Bartender”, “Grey Street”, and “Don’t Drink The Water” from Matthews, and a clip of Preservation Hall Jazz Band.Trey Anastasio – “Miss You”Trey Anastasio brand new songDave Matthews – “Bartender”Dave Matthews – “Grey Street”Dave Matthews – “Don’t Drink The Water”Preservation Hall Jazz Bandlast_img read more
