Former band member Rob Barraco will rejoin the Zen Tricksters for a show at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl on January 22. After leaving The Zen Tricksters, Barraco played keyboards with Phil Lesh’s classic Quintet, and he is currently a member of Dark Star Orchestra. Strengthening his recent connection with the keyboardist, Zen Tricksters frontman Jeff Mattson joined Dark Star Orchestra himself in 2009. Mattson and Barraco have also played a few acoustic duo a few years ago. Zen Tricksters have only made select appearances in recent years while the group’s members focus on other projects. Keith Kenny will open the Tricksters’ Bowl show.

James,

Glad to hear you'll make it ! I recommend hotel Le.Jolie. It's close, clean & inexpensive! In fact, If any Boardies care to share my room, just let me know...

I meant Jan 22 seems so far away. Not so much now, with 3 of 4 Phish shows done. Still not something im going to think too much until after the NYE run ends.

Pray tell, Unbroken, inquiring minds want to know...


There is a venue in CT called Woodbury Ski and Racquet club.... they have been holding shows there for a long time.... can be big fun~!!

At any rate, I think it was in 2004 my buddy and I and a gal we knew ventured up for The ZT and Physical Graffiti (LZ trib).

We found a spot on the slope and set up our blanket and picnic

We noted a lively crew about 20 yards above us... they were rowdy as all hell.. basically they decided to use their cooler lids as sleds on the slippery grass.... and repeatedly crashed into our spot, knocking our shit over and the like... so we kept asking them to chill... eventually they slid directly into our lady friend, like hard into her back.

it was just me and my friend and a shitton of them, but we walked up and tried to be diplomatic but it escalated quickly and before we knew it we were tangled up and rolling down the hill... ended up in front of the stage in a 2 against 7 melee... we did amazingly well :lol:

At any rate- the good news is I now recall is was Physical Graffiti who was on stage at the time.... ZT had finished :rolling:


I was super pissed cuz we got kicked out after being attacked :joker:

Does the Racquet and Ski club still hold shows there? I haven't been there in probably 15 years.

fewer, usually at least one reggae fest.

I think that place is what sent me into Concert Security work... :lol:

not from above incident but a different show where my friend and I hitched there, found two bright orange security vests and proceeded to "sshmooze" our way to drunken oblivion :rolling:

This was my contribution, but as they say on the website, it's more of a reflection, than a review...

 

 

> > > Review is posted of the recent reunion show of Zen Tricksters featuring Tom Circosta, Jeff Mattson, Klyph Black, Dave Diamond, Jennifer Markard, Rob Barraco and Keith Kenny opened. This show was January 22 at Brooklyn Bowl and the review was written by Robert E ODonnell. Go check it out! :

I've been listening to the archive myself the last two days and from this old Zen head's ears they never sounded better.

They always amaze me at how they can come together so quickly, smoothly, without playing together anymore.

 

And man I love that sound. The sound of my favorite musicians. Jenn and Rob. Along with Dave, Klyph, Tommy, and of course Jeff. Best Tricksters lineup. The one of magic.

 

All of those old Zen classics, sounding so fresh. If those cd's came out now, now that Jeff and Rob are house hold names, they'd be big. No doubt.

 

I miss them so much, but of course am grateful for the times I do get, and the music that lives on.

 

Love you Zen Tricksters. Great show, as always!
