SECOND OPINIONS
Excerpt from David Singer’s review at The Daily Gazette: “Seeing the Trey Anastasio Band is not the same as seeing Phish, and Saturday night’s sold-out show at the Palace did not come close, though there were plenty of similar elements. For one, it’s the same energetic crowd that stays on its feet the entire show. And the band opened with a Phish tune — ‘First Tube’ — and front man Anastasio carries the show with his guitar. But Anastasio doesn’t lead the group into meandering, often circular, jams that leave behind any remnants of the song. He nearly did on a few, and single-handedly created exciting moments, but it lacked the X-factor that Phish brings to its gigantic events. While the comparison has to be made, it’s not fair. This is Anastasio’s solo project, offering excellent music with interesting elements. The band cooks with a great sound, and Anastasio seems to enjoy it as much as anyone in the theater.”
