Watch Phil Collins, ‘Hamilton’ Star Leslie Odom Jr. Perform ‘Easy Lover’

Late last year, Phil Collins told Rolling Stone that he was “no longer officially retired” and “raring to go” after nearly a decade out of the spotlight, but he hadn’t done much to actualize that until the opening of the US Open in New York Monday night.

His brief set began with “In the Air Tonight,” featuring longtime Genesis touring guitarist Daryl Stuermer, bassist Nathan East, keyboardist Brad Cole and his 15-year-old son Nicholas on drums. Extensive nerve damage has made it nearly impossible for Phil to play drums at this point, but his skills clearly passed down to the next generation and Nicholas handles one of the most famous drum fills in rock history with ease.

They then nailed an in-person call back in front of top music and entertainment industry judges.

Previous winners have used their US Open performances as springboards to land roles in Broadway musicals and regional productions across the country.

Toasting to Summer with the Dreaming Tree

The Dreaming Tree wines hosted a magnificent summer soiree last week in the heart of the East Village in Manhattan. Not only was the wine wonderful, but the space was truly magical. I was 2 glasses of wine in before I realized that I was toasting to summer in the middle of a cemetery, yes… you correctly…a cemetery!

You would think it would be slightly creepy however it wasn’t at all! The event was held at the New York Marble Cemetery, which made the event cool and historical.

Moving on to Dreaming Trees…Dave Matthews and award-winning winemaker Sean McKenzie created a collection of approachable, food-friendly wines and gathered us together to celebrate summer in one of New York City’s best-kept secret gardens (or cemetery haha).

For the first time, guests met Dreaming Tree co-conspirator and Dave Matthews Band Head Chef, Fiona Bohane, as she introduced her new Recipes from the Road – a collection of dishes created by Bohane and inspired by the cities visited on tour with Dave Matthews Band. The event highlighted select Recipes from the Road dishes, including a grilled halloumi with strawberries, zucchini caprese with tomato vinaigrette, Mediterranean chickpea cakes, steak with braised white beans, and pulled chicken with blackberry BBQ sauce.
