We’ve compiled videos featuring some of our favorite performances from the past week. Panic covers Wilco, Wilco and Nick Lowe play Cruel To Be Kind, Ween rocks Going Gets Tough From The GetGo, The Motet slay Shakedown Street, Umphrey’s mashes three songs up, 7 Walkers reunites three members of the Dead and MMW teams with Antibalas.
Bill Kreutzmann, Papa Mali and Matt Hubbard brought the 7 Walkers to NYC’s Brooklyn Bowl on Tuesday night for a few classic Dead songs, some originals and a bunch of guests to fill the stage.

Sousaphone were tabbed to hold down the bass lines. Previously announced guests Henry Butler joined in on keyboards for a few songs and Joan Osborne – who toured with Kreutzmann as part of The Dead in 2003 – shared the vocal duties on Turn On Your Love Light, New Speedway Boogie and Sugaree. However, the highlight of the night was the appearance of singer Miss Tami Lynn (at the ripe young age of 69) as she came out to sing with Papa Mali on a slowed down and chilling version of Dr. John’s I Walk On Gilded Splinters.
7 Walkers continue their tour with an appearance at the Mountain Jam Music Festival tonight and will return to New York City’s City Winery on Sept. 2nd & 3rd. READ ON for a full gallery of Jeremy’s photos…
Jam Cruise 10 sets sail from Ft. Lauderdale, FL on January 9 aboard the MSC Poesia and will visit Labadee, Haiti and Falmouth, Jamaica before returning to Ft. Lauderdale on January 14. Over the first nine Jam Cruises a number of artists have proven themselves to be ideal performers for the community-oriented vibe of the trip. Jam Cruise 10’s lineup brings nearly all of those acts back to the open seas including HT faves Umphrey’s McGee, Galactic, Soulive, Perpetual Groove, The New Mastersounds, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and Railroad Earth.
Other acts set to perform on Jam Cruise 10 will be Keller & The Keels, Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers, Ozomatli, 7 Walkers (w/ Steve Kimock), Orgone, EOTO, Toots and the Maytals, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Toubab Krewe, Shpongle (DJ Set), Break Science w/ Chali 2na, George Porter and the Runnin’ Pardners, Dr. Klaw, Surprise Me Mr. Davis, Dead Kenny G.’s, The Heavy Pets, DJ Logic, DJ Kraz, Paper Diamond, Everyone Orchestra and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. The New Deal returns to Jam Cruise this January for what will likely be the band’s last-ever performance before going their separate ways. One group we’re particularly interested in seeing is billed as A Tribute to Sly Stone and the Family Stone featuring Ivan Neville, Eric Krasno, Nick Daniels, Adam Deitch, Ian Neville and Nigel Hall. Best part? You know each of those guys will sit in with plenty of bands and in the Jam Room, a venue where Jam Cruise musicians congregate to improv each night.
Speaking of sit-ins, bringing aboard special guests to perform with the bands on the boat is a Jam Cruise tradition and for JC10 the event’s organizers have tapped Anders Osborne, Steve Kimock, Chali 2na, Col. Bruce Hampton, Big Sam, Jessica Lurie and Kyle Hollingsworth to fill those spots. Cabins go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, May 24 at Noon EDT. Those who already pre-booked will be able to pick a room according to their assigned booking time starting on May 11. Visit JamCruise.com for more details about one of the best vacations possible.

With so many festivals and concerts around the country set for Memorial Day Weekend, it’s a buyer’s market. We’ve now got Amberland, Bisco Inferno, DelFest, StrangeCreek, Phish at Bethel Woods,
7 Walker's chemistry was magical, both the old and new material came alive, and the intimate setting put the audience right in the middle of it. For Papa Mali, this band might be the greatest project he had been a part of. For Matt Hubbard, it’s a great opportunity to showcase the music scene his talents. For George Porter Jr., it’s a chance to explore a whole new sound. For Bill Kruetzmann, it has already proven that there is surely life after The Dead.
