The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh‘s home base in the NYC-area is Port Chester’s Capitol Theater, where the Dead played back in the ’70s and where Phil has played 70 times since it reopened in 2012, including for Halloween last night. At last night’s show, Port Chester Deputy Mayor and Trustee Luis Marino presented Phil with a ceremonial key to the Village of Port Chester. That’s Phil pictured above with the key.

At the show last night, Phil was joined by his Terrapin Family Band, Nicki Bluhm, Robert Randolph, Rob Barraco, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and most of the musicians were in costume for the occasion. They did a ton of Dead faves, including “Sugar Magnolia,” “Sugaree,” “Playing in the Band,” “Mountains of the Moon,” and “Uncle John’s Band,” and the Preservation Hall Jazz Dand did their own mini set too. Check out the setlist (via Jambase) and some videos from the show, below.
