An Evening with Trey Anastasio Band

An Evening with Trey Anastasio Band
Trey Anastasio began his career as the guitarist and vocalist for the band Phish. He has
performed with the New York Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the
Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, among others. In 2013, he was nominated for a Tony
Award and two Drama Desk Awards for the original score of the Broadway musical
“Hands on a Hardbody.”
Since 1998, Trey Anastasio has toured and recorded with several backup musicians,
commonly referred to as Trey Anastasio Band, or TAB for short. The classic lineup
features drummer Russ Lawton, bassist Tony Markellis, and keyboardist Ray
Paczkowski, augmented by a full horn section including trombonist/vocalist Natalie
Cressman, multi-instrumentalist James Casey, and longtime TAB trumpeter/vocalist
Jennifer Hartswick.
It is with this group of talented musicians that Paper Wheels, Anastasio’s 10th solo
album, was recorded. The group developed the material on stage while touring and at
soundcheck on the tour leading up to the sessions, allowing them to track the album in
just under a week. Taking a cue from the energetic immediacy of classic Stax Studio
recording sessions, TAB worked fast and loose, playing together live in Anastasio’s
Vermont studio, The Barn, and wrapping up tracks after one or two takes.
