Songs will include many of Ari's unreleased and never before performed original music including Millie & Fee, Take A Little Sip, Inertia, Afrobeat, Melodies, and Ray of Light. The Ari Joshua Band also plays a tender rendition of Phish's song Mockingbird, and a happy-meditation-inducing version of The Grateful Dead's Help On the Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower.
