$19,578.02 raised for charity in Fishman Auction!
Mimi Fishman Auction - The Grateful Web is honored to power the Mimi Fishman auction for more than 5 years!
This time around former Phish drummer Jon Fishman has reached deep into his past to donate many artifacts sure to be of interest to Phish fans. The charity auction features various pieces of Fishman's drum kits used on tours as well as studio recordings – some dating back to the mid to late 80's. This impressive list of items includes Jon's first kick drum which was used during the recording of "Junta" as well as early tour dates, his complete road practice kit, as well as many other gems from his equipment while with Phish. Fishman signed all the items he donated.
This auction is one of special importance to Fishman. "Since Phish broke up I've finally gotten around to going through all the piles of drum equipment I've accumulated over the years and setting aside the items I no longer need or will ever use again. There have been a lot of opinions about what I should do with them one way or another, but it's always been clear to me the best thing I could do would be to auction it off through my mother's foundation to help raise money for those she would have been happy to support", says Fishman.
In addition, the auction features a unique item donated by Phish bassist Mike Gordon and his mother Marjorie Minkin (with funds donated to the Triangle Arts Foundation), items signed by Phish, laminates from Phish festivals/tours, as well as other rarities.
