Trey and Mike to Join Benevento Russo Duo

Some extremely interesting post-Phish rumors floating around right now…

Mike and Trey will be recording with The Duo, all four of whom will go on the road together. It is not known for certain at this point whether they will perform as a foursome, or in some other manner, perhaps GRaB and Trey alternating performance slots, with various sit-ins occuring during the shows. It is also not known at this point whether the shows, should they happen, would prevent Mike and Trey from performing acoustically together as well.

This is entirely exciting to me and something I hope is true. I’m a huge fan of The Duo right now (more on that later) and I can see Mike and Trey adding some serious power to their sound.

    I just want to say I don’t like the comparing of MMW and the Duo, I think they are completely different. And both kick my ass equally in their own way. I think it’s interesting to think about what Trey will add to the band, to see how much success will come to the band in comparison to 70 VP, or Phish, how this will change the Duo’s style, and how long it will last.

    Hrmhm, PT as a source is not that reliable.

    I was really excited when this quartet rumor started a month ago, but now I think it’s not happening alas :/

    I still think it’s decently credible, although PT has gotten a little lax with their Phish-related rumors…

    Who am I to judge, though? At least someone is putting that out there…

    Just wanted to point to this from “all the gossip fit to print” site, Gawker:

    We stopped by Great Lakes in Park Slope yesterday for a quick happy hour beer. The place was dead, except for Trey Anastasio from Phish and a couple of friends (bandmates?). Phish ain’t exactly my scene, so I checked with the bartender after the band left—they told her they were a band from Vermont. Sounds like a confirmation.

    I know that I’m just adding fuel to this burning rumor, but I believe Joe Russo lives in Park Slope. But don’t quote me on that. (Or, if you DO quote me, refer to me as “George Clooney.”)
