Oysterhead, spawned in May of 2000, at the Saenger Theatre during the New Orleans Jazz Festival began as a SuperJam. Consisting of Trey, Primus bassist Les Claypool and Police drummer Stewart Copeland, the trio performed a set of new original material as well as a number of cover songs including Primus’ “Jerry Was a Racecar Driver”(with lyrics from Phish’s Reba), Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” and the Kinks’ “All Day and All of the Night.” Recalling the chemistry from that one-off gig, Trey invited Stewart and Les to the Barn in April 2001 to record what would become “The Grand Pecking Order.” A tour of small arenas ensued in the fall, including appearances on The Late Show With Conan O’Brien and HBO’s hour-long concert program “Reverb.” Heralded as a Supergroup by many critics, more than anything this project was an exercise in collaboration, essentially combining three band leaders with very different musical backgrounds.

Oysterhead reunited for two shows on February 14 and 15, 2020 at FirstBank Center in Broomfield, CO.
