This past weekend saw many of America's most accomplished bands performing some of their most anticipated shows of the year. Halloween weekend is consistently one of the biggest for professional musicians and fans alike, and that was certainly felt in Las Vegas, NV. Just weeks after the horrifying tragedy at Route 91 Harvest Festival in Vegas, Trey Anastasio brought his world class band to town for a two-night run at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas.

In honor of those affected by this tragedy, Anastasio took the stage on Friday with his horn section (Jennifer Hartswick, Natalie Cressman, and James Casey) to open the show with a touching, acapella rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow." Just one of the many reasons why we love Trey and this band so much. You can watch the tribute via Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas' Facebook page below.

Listen To Greensky Bluegrass' Matinee Halloween Set From Las Vegas November 4, 2016 12:33

The festivities surrounding Phish's four-night run in Las Vegas last weekend were abundant to say the least, with a multi-night Disco Biscuits run, a late night Twiddle show, and two shows from Greensky Bluegrass all going down at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. Similar to the 2014 Halloween weekend, Greensky performed both a late night show on Sunday night (Monday morning), as well as a Monday afternoon matinee prior to Phish's three-set Halloween show.  In the spirit of the "musical costume" that proceeded their show, Greensky decided to perform an entire set of tunes that Phish has covered at some point over the years.  This set was highlighted by several of the classic Phish covers, such as "Boogie On Reggae Woman," "Paul and Silas," "Funky Bitch," "A Day In The Life," "Nellie Kane," "Rock and Roll," and "The Ballad Of Curtis Lowe," as well as the much more rare covers of "Time > Breathe," "Light Up Or Leave Me Alone," "We're An American Band," "Ride Captain Ride," and "Sweet Emotion."  Fortunately, full length audio from this performance has surfaced below, and can be streamed below.
