Trey Anastasio Band Welcome New Bassist Dezron Douglas, Announce September and October Tour Dates
Following Phish’s summer tour (and preceding their fall outing), Trey Anastasio will hit the road with his namesake band this fall.
The shows will stretch from Sept. 17 in Portland, Maine through a two-night, Oct. 2-3 finale run at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.
These shows also mark the new addition of bassist Dezron Douglas, who will fill the slot left by the late, great Tony Markellis. Douglas has released six albums as a bandleader, and his playing has been acclaimed by the likes of the New York Times and DownBeat Magazine.
In the past he’s also performed with Ravi Coltrane, and been a part of T.A.B. mainstay Jennifer Hartswick’s own namesake band.
“I’m thrilled to welcome the incredible Dezron Douglas to TAB,” Anastasio wrote following the announcement. “A longtime friend and collaborator of virtually every member of the band, Dezron is a master of reggae, funk and jazz bass. Russ, Ray, Dezron and I had some deep jams in the city recently, and Dezron’s playing is pure flow, heart, spirit and soul. We all can’t wait to get out on the road together.”
According to a press release, “Presales begin Wednesday, July 14 at Noon ET. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, July 16 starting at 10 a.m. ET. For complete details, please visit trey.com/tour.”
