For the penultimate edition of The Beacon Jams livestream series, Trey Anastasio teamed up with his namesake band to play a full set of favorites on Nov. 20, both electric and acoustic.
One standout moment – other than the awe-inspiring “Harry Hood” – was the evening’s pensive “Lifeboy” with exquisite backing vocals by Anastasio’s trusted brass section of Natalie Cressman, Jennifer Hartswick and James Casey. The tune was further amplified by the Rescue Squad Strings, which have quickly become one of the most talked-about elements of The Beacon Jams.
