The standout moment of the evening was when Bob Weir and Dumpstaphunk collaborated on a cover of The Meters’ “Fire On The Bayou.” The last time we saw Bob Weir on stage with the members of Dumpstaphunk was during the epic sit in at Lockn’ during the Foundation of Funk set which saw Weir, John Mayer, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann –most of Dead & Company, sitting in with Ivan Neville, Ian Neville and Tony Hall.
