Grahame Lesh & Friends at the Great American Music Hall Recap & Setlist
The Great American Music Hall is one of those classic San Francisco venues. It has a storied history with both local and national acts, and it is still one of the most beautiful venues in this city full of classic venues. So I was extremely honored to be able to perform there this past Friday. Me and “my friends” (Brian Lesh, Connor O’Sullivan, and Eric Saar) played as the 2nd band of a 3 band lineup – after Prairiedog and before Birdhouse.
It went about as well as I could ever have dreamed it would – a good turnout, a successful set of music (for us and for the other bands), and lots of camaraderie and fun between the musicians before and in between sets. For example, before the show started I was strumming the guitar backstage and warming up my voice by singing “The Night They Drove Ole Dixie Down” with Brian. The guys from Birdhouse apparently heard us through the dressing room walls, and before we got to the 2nd verse we had a good old-fashioned singalong going on. It was quite a moment – just impromptu singing with our new musician friends. Good times.
Without any further ado, here was the setlist. Find a couple videos at the bottom!
