Following surgery to remove a brain tumor, Trey Anastasio Band keyboardist Ray Paczkowski is ready to return to the stage.

In a new announcement, trumpeting the return of The Milkman (Paczkowski’s longtime nickname), Trey Anastasio has revealed that the keyboardist will make his first appearance onstage with the band in almost six months in Charlottesville, VA on July 5.

Paczowski’s last show with the band was “A Concert for Island Relief” on January 6, 2018 at Radio City Music Hall.

Presumably, Paczowski will also join Anastasio and company at their July 6 show at NYC’s Central Park Summerstage.

Tickets for Paczowski’s return performance in Virginia can be purchased here.
