Trey Anastasio won Studio Album of the Year for his self-titled
solo debut and Tour of the Year at the third annual Jammy Awards,
held at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City last night.
Anastasio and Phish also took home an award for Archival Album of
the year for Live Phish 11: 11/17/97, part of the group’s
extensive, authorized bootleg series.
Bob Weir was on hand to accept the Jammys’ Lifetime Achievement
Award on behalf of the Grateful Dead. Weir and his band Ratdog also
performed, closing the festivities with “Lovelight,” featuring an
unbilled appearance by Anastasio, along with Warren Haynes, John
Popper and others. The Allman Brothers Band also made a surprise
appearance, joining Haynes and Gov’t Mule (who won Song of the Year
for “Soulshine”) for “Desdemona.” The Tom Tom Club along with the
Dirty Dozen Brass Band served as the evening’s house band.
The Jammy Award winners are determined by fans who vote at a
variety of Web sites and through Relix magazine.
