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.
