Jason Crosby & Friends

Presented by Terrapin Crossroads at Terrapin Crossroads, San Rafael CA

Sep 22 2019
Jason Crosby & Friends

Featuring Stu Allen, Chris Crosby, Griffin Goldsmith & very special guest Phil Lesh

If Jason Crosby’s name isn’t immediately familiar, his keyboard/violin/guitar playing most likely is.

The multi-instrumental virtuoso has toured and recorded with a who’s who of legendary artists, including Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Pete Seeger, Dave Matthews, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Robert Randolph, and Susan Tedeschi among others.

He’s graced the stages of the world’s biggest festivals and appeared on television everywhere from The Tonight Show and Austin City Limits to Jools Holland and the GRAMMY Awards, where he played keyboard in the tribute to Funk with Outkast, the original P-Funk, and Earth, Wind & Fire.

“I was basically on the road straight from 1993 until 2009,” reflects Jason Crosby. “It got to a point where I was really fried, and I had to quit all of the projects that I was doing and turn down some really high profile ones, too. I just wanted off the road. I needed to see what it was like to live at home and write some songs.”

Upon landing in California, he took up gigs with Jackie Greene, The Mother Hips, John McLaughlin and Jimmy Herring, and Grateful Dead icons Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, and he soon discovered an audience hungry for the original material he’d begun crafting during his hiatus from the road.

It was a risky move to walk away from the safety and security of his career as one of music’s most in-demand sidemen, but Crosby’s decision to experience a different kind of life helped plant the seeds that now, nearly a decade later, have blossomed into his exceptionally beautiful debut album, ‘Cryptologic.’
