Was looking for something to spin on just now and came across this forgotten gem of a show from ’05 when moe. played host to a Tsunami Benefit at NYC’s Roseland Ballroom. Had forgotten how ridiculous this set list/guest list is/was/forever will be. Thankfully it’s housed on for people to enjoy in perpetuity. When will a “Peaches en Regalia” with moe., Trey Anastasio and John Medeski ever happen again? Magical, never-to-be-repeated stuff went down that evening and the show raised $75,000 (which Dave Matthews matched) for recovery efforts in the wake of the horrific 2004 Indonesian earthquake. It’s always very impressive what bands can do when the siren rings and help is needed.

Hopefully such an effort will not be necessary in the coming weeks and Hurricane Irene will blow over with minimal damage, but if help is needed, the jam scene has always been great about banding together for a good cause to help those in need. With moe.down XII set for next weekend in Mohawk, NY perhaps the band can use the gathering as an opportunity to raise a little dough if needed. Fingers crossed for those on the Northeast coast. Check out the set list/guest list and a trio of videos after the jump.
