Trey Anastasio Announces TAB Tour

Russ Lawton [drums]: Lawton also first played with Trey at the Higher Ground opening as a member of Eight Foot Florescent Tubes before joining TAB from 1999-2003. Over the years Russ has performed with Strangefolk, The Chrome Cowboys and with Mike Gordon for the recording of Inside In and The Green Sparrow. Most recently Lawton has been teaming up with Ray Paczkowski for duo gigs in Burlington.

Ray Paczkowski [keyboards]: Ray first joined TAB for the 2001 Summer Tour and has been a staple of Trey bands since that point as he was the only TAB member to be included in Anastasio’s 70 Volt Parade disaster. Ray has spent the past few months tending to his dairy farm in Vermont and playing Duo gigs with Russ Lawton.

Jennifer Hartswick [trumpet]: Jennifer first worked with Trey when she recorded a trumpet part for Birds of a Feather during the recording of Story of the Ghost. Anastasio asked Hartswick to join TAB before the Winter 2001 and she instantly became a fan favorite. Jennifer returned to the fold at the 10,000 Lakes Festival in 2005 and performed with TAB through the Langerado shows in 2007. Over the past few years, Hartswick has released an incredible album, True, and often performs with HT Favorites Van Ghost.



Russ Remington [sax]: Russ Remington has the longest history with Anastasio of anyone in the band having first toured with Phish as a member of the Giant Country Horns in the Summer of 1991. Trey welcomed Russ to TAB for the 2001 Summer Tour and remained with the unit through the 2003 Spring Tour returning for the “Undectet” dates at the end of 2006.

Natalie Cressman [trombone]: 18-year-old Natalie Cressman may be young, but she has plenty of experience in the music biz performing with the likes of Sheila E., Santana, Steven Bernstein and Peter Apfelbaum and the Hieroglyphics Ensemble. Her father, Jeff Cressman, performed with Trey as a member of the “Undectet” in 2006. Jeff is currently a member of Santana’s band and will be playing in Las Vegas while his daughter tours with Trey.

  1. “I’ll take Terminal 5 over the Roseland any day.”

    Not me. Terminal 5 is my least favorite venue I’ve ever attended. I’ll take Roseland over it any time, no matter how hot and sweaty it is.

  2. Well, I’ve actually only seen the Avett Bros and a few other non-jam acts at Terminal 5, so probably not the best judge, but my experiences there have not been all that bad.

    It’s been crowded and not great by any means, but the upstairs wasn’t that bad (if you get a rail, you can see decent). The bathrooms were nice and it’s pretty easy to get beers.

  3. What’s the problem with T5?
    Tons of great site lines.
    Great sound and light system.
    Big stage.
    Lots of bar area.
    Bathrooms are decent and clean.
    In my opinion is like an upgraded roseland.
    The author of this article mist has some personal beef because his comment that T5 is a “hated venue” sounds like sour grapes to me.
    He must be some schill for clearchannel.

  4. can’t wait for trey to come to boston and connecticut….bringing my 4 and 6 year old boys to see trey in boston my 4 year old is so excited come on feb and then come on summer for phish

  5. Terminal 5 sucks. Floor gets over crowded, and if you’re upstairs and not on the rail you might as well be in the bar next door.

  6. BFD, as in Phish has never sounded better, now all we need is Trey gettin his yayas off with “his own thing…” Why cant he just take this time off from Phish and put in a little family time?

    Here’s a toast to the now-sure return of such classics as “Drifting”, “Shine”, “Tuesday”, and yes my personal fav – “Nothing But a “G” Things Baby….”

    Here’s too Atlantic City for NYE 2011!
