Another Summer Camp Music Festival has come and gone, and while every weekend spent at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL beholds something different, this weekend had an extra-special feeling to it that was hard to put your finger on. Maybe it was the seemingly yearly re-occurring thunder storm that rolled through the festival grounds mid-afternoon Friday, soaking the grounds and bringing out the inner-child in the crowd as fans stomped through the puddles with their rain boots.

Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation and The Mimi Fishman Foundation have joined forces in an on-line charity auction.  The auction features tickets for Phish’s 2017 Summer Tour including the “Bakers Dozen” taking place at Madison Square Garden, as well as Phish’s annual Labor Day shows at Dicks Sporting Goods Park in Commerce, CO.  The auction is now available for bidding and comes to a conclusion May 25, 2017. 

On May 17, 1992 Phish played at Achilles Rink – the Union College hockey arena opened in 1975 with a capacity of about 2,500.

A Live One is Texas’ premier Phish tribute, formed in 2011 by guitarist Josh Pearson, now consisting of bassist Andy Harn, keyboardist Zack Morgan and drummer Shadd Scott. Being huge fans and heavily influenced by Phish, the band found it very exciting recreating their music. With 500 shows under their belts, the band has toured heavily throughout the country and performed at several festivals including Phases of the Moon, Euphoria, Art Outside & Highberry.

For fans of the band Phish there is no doubt that 1993 was probably the most pivotal year in their now legendary career.  Though they had technically been performing together since the mid 80s, it was at this point that the band began to shape themselves into the touring juggernaut they would eventually become.  Over the course of the year the band performed 110 shows, each one filled with unique jams, new originals, and exciting cover songs.

In late January, legendary Vermont quartet Phish shocked the jam community by announcing an unprecedented 13-night run at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. From July 21 to August 6, music enthusiasts from across the globe will flood into New York City to pack the 19,000 capacity arena for the inaugural “Baker’s Dozen” rock and roll extravaganza.

In 1993, Phish was touring following the release of their fourth album Rift, and rapidly expanding into colleges and theaters as word spread about their renowned live performances. St. Louis '93 captures the band at two standout shows on consecutive tours at the 1,750-seat Beaux Arts style American Theatre.

The Mimi Fishman Foundation has added to the current charity auction signed posters from Phish’s New Years Eve run at Madison Square Garden. The posters are signed by all band members.

The initial auction announcement is below.

In addition to The Baker’s Dozen at Madison Square Garden, a few more shows have been added to Phish's summer plans including three shows at Chicago’s Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island and one night stands at Dayton, OH’s Nutter Center and Pittsburgh, PA’s Petersen Events Center. The band will also return to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for their seventh annual Labor Day Weekend run in Commerce City, CO.
