Mimi Fishman Foundation News (PHISH, PHISH, PHISH)

The WaterWheel Foundation and the Mimi Fishman Foundation have teamed together for a “reprise” of their recently completed on-line charity auction. While the previous auction featured a package representing each tour stop on the 1st leg of the 2010 Phish Summer tour, the new auction covers the tours 2nd half. Every tour stop multiple nights including fan favorites such as Alpine Valley, Deer Creek, and Jones Beach, as well as a special 3 night run at the Greek Theater in Berkeley. A very special run in Telluride places an exclamation point on the tour.

All proceeds raised will mutually benefit the Foundations, both of which have strong ties to the band Phish. The WaterWheel Foundation was created by Phish in 1997 to oversee the band’s various charitable activities. The Mimi Fishman Foundation was established in1999 by Miriam "Mimi" Fishman (the late mother of Phish drummer Jon Fishman) and David Shulman, as a vehicle to raise funds for various charities important to Mimi.

The on-line auction is currently live with the bidding coming to close on Monday, July 19.

In addition to a pair of reserved tickets per show, the auction packages include “bonus” items including posters by famed poster artist Jim Pollock and signed by the band, a rare David Welker print, etc. .

Mimi Fishman Foundation Auction-LIVE!

The first Mimi Fishman Foundation on-line charity auction of the new decade has just launched. The auction features over 30 limited edition posters from Phish’s 2009 tour, including the end of year Miami run and Festival 8. All the posters are signed by each of the members of Phish and in most cases the poster artist as well; Phish famed artist Jim Pollock included. Making the posters extremely rare is the fact the band signed only 5 posters from each show.

The beneficiaries of the auction proceeds include the Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments, a wonderful organization that extends services to visually impaired children ages birth to three as well as their families - as well as the SPCA of Syracuse, an organization which was very close to Mimi’s heart and where she got her cat Valentine.

BoomBox Post-Phish and New Year’s Eve

Its no surprise BoomBox is taking the country by storm with their unique brand of house infused rock n’ roll. The duo brilliantly blends the sophistication of live guitar and poetry while soulfully delivering lyrics and boogie-ready samples for a one-of-a-kind live performance. Their dedication to provide an experimental dance party within their live show setting is second to none. With two New Year’s celebrations scheduled nearly 1,000 miles apart, this year is no exception.

BoomBox will be performing the post-Phish celebration on Dec. 29th in Miami before heading up to their home stomping grounds of Muscle Shoals, Alabama on New Year’s Eve --- their first performance in the area in over a year.

Comprised of multi-talented producer/musicians Zion “Rock” Godchaux and Russ Randolph, the BoomBox project manifested in 2004 during a six-month recording session. With an instant connection to a similar style of music it didn’t take long for the pair to hit the road with a combined vision that makes up their signature sound today. Together this collective skillfully weaves over four decades of music into one spontaneous live track, embracing everything from Motown, to 70’s era funk, to the roots of gritty rock n’ roll creating a truly unique dance ready sound.

Since their first national tour the duo has sold thousands of copies of their independent release, Visions of Backbeat, and has performed dozens of sold-out venues around the country. BoomBox’s new album, downriverelectric, will be released January 2010.

The perfect choice for a post-Phish celebration, BoomBox will take the dance party well in to the wee hours of the morning in Miami at the White Room, less than one mile from the American Airlines Arena. The party starts at 10 PM and everyone 18 and older can join the fun.

24 hours and almost 1,000 miles later, BoomBox will return to their hometown of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, with a special New Year’s Eve celebration at the newly renovated Grand Shoals Theater. This special evening will not only mark their first area performance in over a year, it will pay tribute to all the local fans that helped launch the duo’s national career.

Tickets for both events are now on sale and more information can be found on the official BoomBox website at www.thisisboombox.com - Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets for both events in advance.

Phamily Reunion: Music, Camping, Vending Options for PHISH ticket holders

eotoIn just three short weeks, PHISH will make their triumphant return to Red Rocks in Morrison, CO for their first performance in 13 years at the legendary amphitheater. The band was banned in 1996 after numerous local complaints about illegal camping and unquestionable behavior of the fans in the small community of Morrison. Flash forward to 2009, where local organizers have put together an alternative to illegal camping by securing a private campground with transportation and late night music included in the ticket price.

The Phamily Reunion, which will coincide all four nights of PHISH at Red Rocks, has a solution for everyone. Ticket holders and those who weren’t lucky enough to get tickets to see PHISH, are all invited to join the all-night party taking place in serene Idaho Springs, CO. After brisk initial ticket sales in 4-day camping passes, event organizers have just released one-day passes to the event, scheduled to go on sale on Thursday, July 9th 2009.

The four-day celebration has already penned an amazing line-up of national acts including The New Mastersounds, EOTO and the “glitch goddess” Ana Sia among five new regional additions to the lineup including: Mama’s Cookin’, Stanky Pockets, Chris Webb Band, Seismic Shift and J Wail Vs. Agobi Nick. More surprises are to come and tickets are going fast, making for great anticipation of the four-day camping and music event in the beautiful Colorado Front Range July 30 through August 2. Day shows at the campground will warm the dancing feet and late-night shows will keep the festivities rolling into the night. To top it off, the festival offers the opportunity to camp under the Colorado stars, whitewater raft, fish, hike, horseback ride and soak in the hot springs.

Phamily Reunion: Special Event to Coincide with Phish at Red Rocks

Fans that did not score tickets to Phish at Red Rocks Amphitheatre should worry not; there just happens to be a four-day camping and music festival a few short miles away on a private ranch. For those that did score tickets, The Phamily Reunion Festival offers what Red Rocks cannot: camping and a safe ride to and from the festival to each Phish show. Set for July 30 through August 2 on the beautiful Van Eden Ranch in Idaho Springs, the good souls that love Phish, live music, camping, hiking, biking, hot springs and much more, will come together for a special string of days, all set to the good vibes of the Colorado Rockies.

hahnWith an already heavy-hitting lineup including The New Mastersounds, EOTO, The Heavy Pets, Juno What?!, LYNX & Janover, Ana Sia, YAMN and others, the festival promises to be big enough to stand on its own without Phish coming to town. With rumors surfacing after the 1996 Phish shows at Red Rocks about the band being banned because of an infiltration of campers in Morrison, CO, The Phamily Reunion is the perfect spot for one of the most coveted aspects of a Phish tour: community. And who knows, campers may just score the ticket they were looking for on the grounds of the ranch.

With four-day event passes available and buses running back and forth all day from the campgrounds to Red Rocks, it’s the ultimate and safest option. Add to that the chance to fish, hike, whitewater raft, gamble, soak in the hot springs, and horseback ride, The Phamily Reunion makes for perhaps the best all-around experience for both Coloradans and those visiting. Before heading to the lot at Red Rocks, campers can get their dancing feet warmed up to live music, only to be treated to late-night DJs and bands from Colorado and coast-to-coast.

Headlining the festival are The New Mastersounds, a funk, soul, jazz and rock quartet hailing from across the pond in England. It’s a true privilege to have such a pioneering act in the “new funk” movement in the Front Range of Colorado. From Colorado are slated both EOTO and Juno What?!, the former being a cutting-edge electro/improvisational duo, comprised of the rhythm section of The String Cheese Incident. Likewise, Juno What?! is a new project to come of the highly touted Colorado group The Motet, which has a passionate fan base in and around Colorado. Juno What?! brings back the eighties with a new look, combining fresh funk with quasi-disco undertones. The Heavy Pets are one of the hottest, up-and-coming jam bands on the circuit, all the way from Florida. Ana Sia is a psychedelic hip-hop DJ from San Francisco that drops huge beats, while the hip-hop, beat-boxing and innovative percussion of LYNX & Janover are not to be forgotten. More artists are to be announced, so stay tuned.

Fans won’t want to miss this epic weekend on the grounds of the Van Eden Ranch, where what is not being offered at Red Rocks is more than possible at The Phamily Reunion.
