The legendary jam band Phish once again proved why they are the undisputed kings of live improvisational music with their electrifying performance at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, MA, last night. The band, currently on their Summer Tour 2024, delivered a set that had the crowd dancing, singing, and basking in the pure joy that only a Phish show can bring.

Phish returned to the iconic Madison Square Garden in the heart of New York, NY on December 28, 2023, for their eightieth show at the famed arena. They also commenced their annual four-night New Year's run for a sold-out crowd of donut-clad individuals. Like a fine wine, this band only gets better with age, and the proof is in the pudding: a first night full of old favorites and a four-song encore.

The Go Big For Hunger All-Star Band returns for two fundraising concerts at Portland House of Music & Events on March 8 and 9, 2024 (The Annual Go Big For Hunger Jam to support children with food insecurities). The shows feature Phish drummer Jon Fishman,  George Porter Jr.

The first time I saw Phish live was at the band’s famed Rupp Area show in Lexington KY, in November 1996. (The Four Horsemen of the Psychedelic Apocalypse unspooled a stratospheric, 25-minute “Bathtub Gin” jam that night which immediately entered Phish pholklore as one of the all-time best versions. As a dazzled, newly-minted Phish convert at the time, I certainly thought so, and it was my first time hearing the song!

This past weekend, Phish took their twelfth run at their annual Labor Day summer tour closer, delivering four nights of fun at the famed Dick’s Sporting Goods Park outside of Denver. With the exception of Thursday night, which was still very packed, the band played to sold-out crowds, 27,000 people turning out to celebrate the Jesters of Jam and the shared experience once again.

Six nights of live performances certainly take a toll. However, there was no sign of breaking on the sixth of seven performances by Phish at Madison Square Garden on August 4, 2023. The jam rock squad from Vermont certainly brought the sweltering summer heat inside the Garden in the form of face-melting jams, rarely played originals, and tasty covers.

Jam rock titans Phish took New York City's Madison Square Garden by storm last Friday, July 28, 2023, for the first of seven performances at the famed arena. They always channel their collective creativity at what is known as the "World's Greatest Arena," and this run, which notably had no name or theme, was no exception. Both sets included stand-out jams, as the band showed up firing on all cylinders.

This past week, central Colorado continued its reign as the live musical mecca that locals and pilgrims have come to know as a true constant. With so many multi-night performances within a 150-mile drive of the Mile High City, it was difficult to decide what to do.

Last week, Phish made their long awaited return to the William Randolph Hearst Greek Theatre, better known as The Greek, and as expected, turned out three great nights of playing in one of northern California’s most reputable and intimate venues. Sitting at the crown of UC Berkeley with its iconic columns and a long history of incredible performances, the 8500 phans who got to witness magic incarnate once again danced and left floating on cloud nine, enraptured in jam and joy.
