Lesh was fond of calling it " Dixieland -style rock. It is this melding of musical influences that has given them extremely wide appeal not only among old Deadheads, but the modern-day fans of other jam bands as well. The Internet has been an invaluable source for these tapers to disseminate this music through various sources, including Archive. Phil has also embraced the Internet by providing free soundboard recordings of many concerts through his website, even providing high-resolution CD covers for fans to print.
For his Summer tour, Phil partnered with Instant Live, a company that was able to provide soundboard CDs of a concert immediately upon its finishing, as well as make these recordings available for fans to download online, though this service was not free. Dead drummers Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart were not part of the band.
After this gig the band name was put to rest until Phil formed a new band in After these opening concerts and until October , Phil kept the same "core" of himself and Kimock, and generally Molo as well, while regularly rotating in new musicians on guitar and keys and sometimes additional instruments.
Over this period, the lineups included: This series of shows featured members of Little Feat -- Bill Payne keys and vocals , Paul Barrere guitar and vocals Steve Kimock left the tour on October 29, , and Derek Trucks joined a few days later.

The Quintet is generally regarded as the strongest continuous lineup of Phil Lesh and Friends.
Dead instrumentals such as Blues for Allah were reworked into modal jazz stylings, while fan favorites like Foolish Heart were reexamined with brilliant results. In just over three years the Quintet built a separate identity from Grateful Dead music, while still honoring Lesh's work in whole. During the summer tour of , the band performed a series of instrumental numbers composed by Lesh. The songs were inspired by the solar system. While they were never officially released on an album, they have come to be known as the Planet Jams.
A very popular bootleg compilation of these songs has been circulating since then.
On the first half of the summer tour, they were joined by John Scofield guitar , and on the second half, by Barry Sless pedal steel and, during the third quarter of the tour and generally for the second set, by Trey Anastasio. Saxophonist Greg Osby joined the group for various concerts, particularly toward the end of the tour, and guest artists including Page McConnell and Dickey Betts sat in for individual sets.
Concerts with Scofield had a jazzy, astringent quality. Anastasio contributed a strong rock lead guitar to the sets he played in, while Sless brought a softer, more lyrical quality.
The relative lack of comment about these lineups compared to the earlier "Quintet" and later configuration suggests that they were not as popular with Lesh's core fan base, but they gave unique and varied interpretations to some of the Grateful Dead's classics along with numerous other songs. Furthermore, the fact that the entire tour was distributed online and later via Instant Live CDs, and a live DVD was made of an early concert at the Warfield with Scofield and Osby , meant that the various configurations of the year's lineup left a larger body of recorded work than many groups that worked together for years.
The show was the first time that Weir, Hart, and Lesh had played together since Even more recently, the band performed the final shows at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco, California. Bob Weir sat in for a run of five nights that included sets of the Grateful Dead's first few albums. Meanwhile, Phil has been touring with The Dead and Furthur.
A twelve-date appearance at Lesh's new club, Terrapin Crossroads , is set to commence on March 17, , which many old members of the band returning to appear alongside Lesh, as well as a few new members. These celebrations of the Grateful Dead's 50th Anniversary continued into
