WATCH: Phil Lesh & Family Band Jam on Game of Thrones Theme

It seems every night at Terrapin Crossroads has something special, unique and surprising to offer and Friday evening was no different. The “special guest” with The Family Band that included Grahame Lesh, Brian Lesh, Scott Padden & Ross James was Phil Lesh himself, and the Grateful Dead bassist joined in for an extended jam on the Game of Thrones theme.

The cover was timely as rabid fans of the show await Game of Thrones’ Season 3 premiere tonight. Check out the clip below. Winter is coming.

I am usually pretty good at calling the tune after a few notes, after see/hearing Phil perform over 500 times, I should be, lol! I just could not put my finger on this one, It was sounding like suntin’ from a 1969 GD show, Grahame told me later that it was the Game of Thrones Theme. Astute Furthur fans will remember that 12/31/11 NYE show had Emily Sunderland riding the dragon from Game of Thrones at the stroke of midnight…
