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…
